Blues head home looking to take a commanding 3-0 lead

Blues beat Wild in OT

Bradley Beal had 22 points for the Wizards, who got enough from their top players to offset 25 points from Atlanta's Dennis Schroder and 19 from Paul Millsap.

In the second, the Wild bounced back as Charlie Coyle knocked in the rebound to tie the game at one. Allen took the loot in Game 1, and the Blues were sheepishly counting it the day after. It came on a power-play after he drew a high-sticking penalty against the Wild's Ryan White. Yet Allen has fared well on the penalty kill, even with the defense limiting the Wild to less than a dozen shots on goals in power plays throughout the series. In brief: He takes over as the go-to goaltender with a trade of Brian Elliott, hits a mid-season roadblock and then overcomes his struggle to lead the team to a sixth straight playoff bid.

"It's a good start for us, but the job's not over yet", Schwartz said. "Win Wednesday and we'll be happy for a day and we'll see what happens on Friday". "I don't know [if it would change how they play], because we haven't had it".

"It's been the same", Allen said of the three games. "I don't really get caught up in it, but it's nice to see support from the fans".

Four teams have rallied to win their series of the 184 who have fallen behind 3-0. Still, St. Louis came away with the victory. I think a ideal example would have been where (Jason) Zucker came out of the penalty box two games ago and over-skated it, then passed it to (Eric) Staal, and Staal panicked and threw it across. We're going to expect the exact same thing. "We've got to play the same game. Quit trying to put words in our mouths that make us look like we're bad because we're not". The heroes of the game stepped up in overtime with Blues goalie Jake Allen stopping a stunning 51 shots and Joel Edmundson scoring the game-winning goal off an assist from Tarasenko.

In the midst of a series-defining 60-minute stretch, the Blues got goals from defenseman Colton Parayko, winger Jaden Schwartz, and center Alexander Steen, while star goaltender Jake Allen finished with 40 saves. Minnesota's 3.21 goals-per-game average ranked second only to Pittsburgh's 3.39 in the regular season. Whether or not shot blocking is a valuable skill has been a topic of debate over the last few years, but the Blues made it work for them in Game 2. "That's all it comes down to".

Allen will seek his fourth career playoff win when the St. Louis Blues open up the home portion of this series on Sunday at 2 p.m. "That's a good test against a good team". I know there's been some regret in the past about not closing out series when there was a chance here.

"I just think about it 24/7", he said. They aren't just going to lose. Urgency that produced a dominant performance in a Game 1 loss resurfaced in the second period, when the Wild finally exploited their speed advantage, found a pathway around the Blues' mountainous defensemen and crashed the net for more potent scoring chances. Wild C Erik Haula was in the lineup after missing practice on Saturday.

Game 3 is Sunday night in NY. "Loud, fun to be a part of and when you have them on your side, it makes things a lot better".

It seems the Wild actually believe that as a sense of calm permeated throughout the the locker room heading into the pivotal Game 3.

The St. Louis goalie, who had 33 wins and a.915 save percentage this season, is 4-5 with an overall.918 save percentage in 9 career playoff games.
