Vancouver’s Luongo Benched By Momma Gouche

I thought it was a good decision as Roberto has not played well under pressure for some time. Cory Schneider took over the starter goalie position. With shots of 14-7 in the first period he stood up well and there was no scoring for either team in the period. The Blues’ Alexander Steen scored at 8:29 of the second. Schneider had faced 25 shots in the second, but unfortunately one got past him. He was afforded very limited defense support. Surprisingly there were no penalties in the second as there were 38 hits. The Canucks were very ineffective on their shots and the best they accomplished  was to hit the goal post a couple of times. Vancouver came out a little more aggressively in the third and had four quick shots on goal. At the expiry of their penalty in the third the defense got hung up, giving Steen the room to score his second goal. The Canucks played well at the beginning of their power play, but Daniel Sedin got called for tripping, which negated their good efforts.Vancouver out-shot St. Louis 10-3, but didn’t put anything on the score board. They played well enough, but the puck didn’t bounce their way. The Blues’ Patrik Berglund wrist shot one past Schneider at 17:09 and St. Louis won 3-0
