The Blues' hitting is causing an awful lot of errors by The Wings. They've left the puck in front of Howard, waiting for a Blue to pick it up, several times. The Blues have had the puck all alone with only Howard to beat several times. I can't believe they still have no goals. Pretty discouraging.
When the Blues own a period like that, they really need to put something on the scoreboard. Overall, a really good period though. A ton of physicality on the puck, strong positioning/gaps, aggressive forechecking...lots of positives in their play, which is as good as it's been in the last two weeks.
Hope they can carry it through to the next period and put something on the board, because they aren't going to have much left in their legs by the third.
