ST. LOUIS — Playoff hockey returns to St. Louis Friday night!
The Blues take on the Minnesota Wild in Game 3 of the best-of-seven series at the Enterprise Center. The puck drops at 8:30 p.m. and the Enterprise Center is sure to rock with blues fans.
Goalie Ville Husso was spectacular for the Blues in the first game. He made 37 saves in a 4-0 shutout win. David Perron had a hat trick in the first game. The Blues started the series with a big win in the opening game to take a 1-0 lead in the series, but game two was a different story. Blues defender Robert Bortuzzo was hit on the side of the head by a puck while trying to save a shot in the first period. Bortuzzo left the game after that painful moment. Its status is still unknown. Vladamir Tarasenko scored his 36th playoff goal as a blue in the second game. That puts him second on the Blues’ all-time playoff goalscorer list. He’s only behind Brett Hull. Despite overtaking and defeating the Wild in game two, the Blues still came up short, losing 6-2.
The Blues are looking to play a physical game on Friday night.
“We just want to play hard and, you know, finish our controls and try to wear them down. We know the series is long and every little bump, every little hit can play a role in moving forward in the future series,” said Blues’ Tyler Bozak.
Game four will be played at the Enterprise Center on Sunday. The puck drops at 3:30 p.m. Game five will be back in Minnesota on Tuesday. This game starts at 8:30 p.m. If required, Game Six will return to the Enterprise Center on May 12th. If the series goes to a Game Seven, it will be on May 14th in Minnesota.
