Patrice Bergeron helped his squad with four assists as the Boston Bruins went on to defeat the Blues 4-2, winning their third consecutive contest last night in St. Louis. Mark Recchi, Blake Wheeler, Milan Lucic and Marco Sturm each found the net through plays set up by Bergeron.
“To be honest, the puck was just bouncing our way and the puck was going in,” Bergeron said. “So we’ll take it, but at the same time it’s more about the win than anything else.” The Bruins are now 11-8-4 and playing with some life heading into their next game against the Minnesota Wild tomorrow night. They will then host the New Jersey Devils at the TD Garden on Friday, November 27th.

The last five minutes of last night’s Bruins/Blues matchup had more action than more entire games do. Down by a goal, the Bruins rallied to score three goals in under two minutes, giving the B’s a two-goal lead with barely three minutes to go. St Louis would get points on a David Perron power play goal, and a game tying shot by David Backe. After a scoreless overtime period, the Blues shut out the B’s in the shootout to take the overtime win.
Even with the loss, the Bruins are tied with the San Jose Sharks for NHL best point standings at 71.

Recap – Goals are important in winning NHL hockey games, and unfortunately for the St. Louis Blues they have scored only 120 goals, the lowest total in the league. Fortunately, they have one of the leagues best defenses and do not allow many goals either. Manny Legacy has seen the majority of the time in net for the Blues and brings 9 years of experience to the table every night. Everyone recognizes the name Paul Kariya as the team superstar, but it’s Brad Boyes who is making a lot of noise for the struggling offense scoring 27 goals thus far in the season. He can’t do it all by himself and needs some help from second line teammates to pick up the slack.
2nd Half – If the Blues were in the Eastern Conference they would be a playoff contender this season, but the Western Conference is much more powerful this year, especially in the Central Division. The Blues will have to play the role of spoiler this year because due to their lack of offense, they won’t be seeing the post-season.
Team Name: St. Louis Blues (22-18-6)
Central Division Standing: T-4th place
Conference Standing: T-12th place
Final Predictions – 4th in Central Division, 12th in Western Conference
