id be more worried about "6 goal" Clouts than Osgood if I were you. 1 game doesnt mean he is "back to form". all we gotta do is start shooting from the red line and we will be alright.

well 0-0 after one, looks like im talking o myself here, but thats alright

the refs really need to let the teams play, it is starting to get ridiculous. a playoff series shouldnt be determined by who has the better special teams.

was pretty even in the first period, the blues were pretty physical so that was nice, now lets just pop in a few goals

the philly toronto game is going to ot, so i suggest you watch that, there is nothing like sudden death overtime playoff hockey, where any mistake can cost you the game, now thats excitement

almost as exciting as smooching you

well 2-1 after 2

the blues dominated that period, but a late powerplay goal keeps the canucks in it

there are still waaay too many penalty calls, that was a nice high stick

should be a good 3rd period

woo hoo, game over

eat shit canucks

what a perfectly played 3rd period by the blues, after the 1st period it play was pretty much dominated by the blues. it was nice to see such nice defense without the soon to be norris trophy winner, 14 freakin shots. its a shame there had to be so many penalties though, the whole series has been ridiculous penalty wise. its hard to get a good flow to the game going with all of that crap called. but we won so i am happy, ill be interested to hear you canucks fans comments.

Blues Recap: Blues overcome endless trips to penalty box

Jeff Gordon Post-Dispatch Online Sports Columnist
updated: 04/14/2003 10:21 PM


The Blues weren't perfect Monday night. They spent too much time in the penalty box to earn the highest possible praise.

But they did play a solid, spirited game while dispatching the Vancouver Canucks 3-1 to take a two games-to-one lead in this first-round NHL series.

The Blues checked tenaciously, controlled play at even strength and won the battle of special teams.

They handled the absence of Norris Trophy candidate Al MacInnis for one game, anyway, getting especially strong games from Chris Pronger, Alexander Khavanov and Barret Jackman on defense.

Chris Osgood played another stout game in goal, too, as this resilient team took another stride toward becoming a real Stanley Cup contender.

Now, if they could only do something about all those needless penalties that leave them shorthanded way too often . . .

GETTING STARTED

The Blues talked a lot about staying out of the penalty box in Game 3 . . . and then they came out taking more penalties. Ryan Johnson got nabbed on a high sticking call and Valeri Bure gave the Canucks another quick power play by earning a slashing penalty.

This was definitely not the game plan. By managing to kill off those two penalties, though, the Blues gave themselves a chance to settle into the game.

BECOMING OFFENSIVE

As in Game 2, the Canucks didn't give the Blues get a whole lot of room to work at even strength. When the Blues weren't in the penalty box, though, they did a pretty good job creating some pressure with all their lines.

Had they hit the net instead of a couple of posts (Keith Tkachuk in the first period, Doug Weight in the third) this victory would have been an easy one.

GETTING DEFENSIVE

Well past the halfway mark of Game 3, the Canucks had just seven shots. Seven! The Blues played brilliant team defense, maintaining strong positioning, locking up would-be shooters off the puck, blocking shots and clearing rebounds.

Weight had a memorable rebound sweep in the first period, swiping a would-be goal out of harm's way at the very last second.

STRATEGY AND TACTICS

With MacInnis disabled and Jeff Finley back from the injured list, Coach Q paired Finley with Christian Laflamme, Khavanov with Bryce Salvador and Pronger with Jackman to start the game.

Working with the last player change, Quenneville was able to keep the Pronger/Jackman duo on Vancouver's top line. He also kept the Martin Rucinsky-Weight-Dallas Drake line out against the Todd Bertuzzi-Brendan Morrison-Markus Naslund line as much as possible.

SPECIAL SITUATIONS

The Blues broke the scoreless tie in the second period with an excellent power-play maneuver by Cory Stillman. On his forehand, he curled from the right side of the offensive zone to the middle of the ice then snapped a pass back toward Pavol Demitra at the right post.

Demitra slapped the bad-angle shot off Canucks goaltender Dan Cloutier into the net to give the Note a 1-0 lead.

We're always begging Weight to look for his own shot more and he did on the very next Blues power play, walking out from behind the net to fire the puck through Cloutier to push the Blues lead to 2-0.

(By the way, fans of high adventure certainly enjoy watching Weight work the right point while Khavanov works the left point. One never knows what they will do or where they will go.)

The Blues were absolutely brilliant on the penalty kill. Johnson, Drake, Weight, Tyson Nash, Shjon Podein . . . forwards on the kill did an excellent job breaking up plays and clearing the puck out of danger.

GETTING PHYSICAL

It didn't take long for the real fun to start. Salvador checked Canucks agitator Matt Cooke into the Blues bench early in the first period, then Tyson Nash did the same to Brent Sopel a few minutes later.

Pronger got into the spirit of the whole penalty killing thing, popping Bertuzzi in the melon in the second period and sending his helmet flying.

NET GAINS/LOSSES

Osgood made the big saves when he had to, like on Morrison's attempted rebound conversion with less than eight minutes left in the second period.

Ozzy stopped a Brent Sopel slap shot from the right point, then deftly slid to his right to keep Morrison from taking the rebound and reaching it around him. That timely stop kept the Blues in firm control of the game.
