It's so nice to shrug off a 2 goal deficit, vs the previous thoughts of turning off the game.

Good to see the boys tested.
Win or lose nice litmus test of where we are against the champs.

Sure is a difference compared to what we have seen from the teams we’ve played so far...

I know we tied it, but that 5on3 looked like shit for a full 2 minutes.

One shot on net and Edler inexplicably shoots from the point on a 5on3 and gets it blocked. Goddamn Travis-ty.
Try to focus on THIS year...

St. Louis is a very very good team

Aggressive forechecks, physical and fast

but our team is showing resiliency

managed to tie the game with that shitty powerplay and passing tonight

Why the fuck was that 5 on 3 "powerplay" so cringy?

Two penalties on Pettersson went uncalled


We deserved this point!

Nice comeback!

Leivo with the dippsy-doodle. Was wondering when someone was gonna try a deke.

The power play was a bit a worry though, seemed like they were playing right into the blues trap too much. More Dump it in set it up, cycle it around, collapse their box and get a big body in front. 1970s style

The most impressive thing about this game? All their goals came in close from driving the net.

The most impressive thing about the season? They're competitive on the scoreboard and in the alley.

What an entertaining game.

The blues protect the puck so damn well...they dog the puck all over the ice, they knocked down like 80% of the canucks passes and finished hard on our best player like clockwork.

That said taking 2 out of there is impressive. We laid it all out for the win and they can carry their heads high

Leivo hate is still here. He's still not very good in the 60 minutes part of the game.

Great move after watching 5 unsuccessful attempts at shooting into Binnington's pads.

Dunno if the team would get the same result against the Cup champs if this happened in February, but this is a game people can point to when they say this year will be different. Definitely something they can build on - more so than the previous wins.
