Sabres 4
Blues 2

Blues continue to stink at home and give back all the momentum from their Western Canada swing to get back to where they've been hovering all year - "1 game above .500."

Blues will have more shots on goal but lose 2-1 with Miller in net. Win 4-1 with Lalime in net.

So Conks can only pitch a shutout if Lalime is at the other end of the ice?

I'm banking on the Sabres being demoralized by having Lalime in net to the point that they concentrate on defense and don't score any goals.

Senators fan here.

Just turned the game on, rooting for Blues. Not big on the Sabres.

I hate that Kaleta. At least there is a powerplay.

After Steen scored, his play went way south the rest of the period.

We have to start capitalizing on the PP.

As usual the Refs have to screw the Blues. This happens at least once every game. That was an obvious interference on the Hecht goal. The buffalo player reached out and pushed Tkachuk away giving Hecht a free shot.

OMG 2 dives and 2 penalties on the Blues...Rofl, either Jackman is the strongest player in the history of the NHL or McArthur is Greg Luganis. Someone needs to look for the sniper that took Myers down. Oshie taps his shinguard and he falls like he was shot.

Yet another no excuse for a loss at home game. Can we petition the NHL to let the Blues play the rest of the games on the road?

We have scorers, its a systems thing, the blues played mediocore and spent most of the time on the dump and chase and cycling in the corners, PPs took very few shots- cycling in corners and trying to set up pretty plays that didnt work. Once the Blues did get a lead they continued to dump and looked like they were playing to simply hold the one goal lead (something that usually doesnt/ didnt work).

That wasn't the case @ all tonight or last night...Buffalo looked like a much faster team than St.Louis tonight...Plus the Blues need to learn how to execute line changes..It killed them last night and tonight

Conklin let in at least 2 very weak goals. Fact is... goaltending is no longer playing at the level they were early in the year. Mason has looked downright poor, for the most part, in his last 4 or 5 starts. Today they just got outplayed and unlucky.

I put this game on Conklin. To give up only 6 shots in the 3rd period and allow 3 goals is very shaky. EJ's penalty didn't help, but the Blues should not have been behind at that point any way. The rest of the team played well enough to win.

Getting 3 goals at home and controlling the other team's chances that well should be enough to win. Both of our goalies are not playing to the level they were at the start of the season. Also, I think the noise about Conklin displacing Mason as the starter can cool it.

All that aside, the PP could have salvaged the game, too, and taken the pressure off Conklin. I have to give Lalime credit, he played well enough to win...but you had the feeling the Blues could have shelled him if a bit more pressure had been applied.

Did I mention that Brewer played another solid game? One sweet goal, and another unlucky post on a great shot. Solid defensively. Can it really be that his back was limiting what he could do in this department last year? He's looked a lot more dangerous offensively, when he's played. His defense is about the same as it was, but he seems to pinch more and his shot is a lot more accurate. It remains to be seen whether he can physically endure the punishment of the season. Seems sketchy so far, but I do have to give him credit for his solid play.
