ST. LOUIS – For more than two years, the famous blues had the Canucks.
For one afternoon Elias Pettersson had his way – and that was really played as Vancouver won matches first in five days Sunday with a resolving 6-1 triumph at the Enterprise Center.
Pettersson's second five points out of season, including a three-point explosion in & # 39; The opening of the season 14:06 The 15th goal of the season was instrument in line Brock Boeser striking two goals in the opening of 20 minutes and finishing with his second career trick.
The Blues just have no answer in the first attempt to try Pettersson, the Calder Trophy front runner.
And for a blues club you had all the answers in the last nine meetings with Canucks – five line wins and a 8-0-1 advantage – it was still a wild wheelchair, when # 39 the jets break in Winnipeg on Friday.
Here's what we learned when the Canucks still went to another Jake Allen to get a three-track out of the door:
Pettersson's passerby, however, is Dekey Pete
For all, it can do the slippery Swedish center if it decides to swim or write – the puck-on-the-string game and the one-knife, one-timer that's tough and precise – it's the playing gambling that does not get enough of the impediment.
It was frate and often sunday.
At the opening ceremony of Boeser, the blues are unaware of how well Pettersson can move if he can easily set up the window with a slide out of the corner.
For his purpose, the blues must have been as quiet Pettersson time and space buying by hanging on a pocket long enough to recover back and finds a sailing contest. And when he had done, Pettersson had his bracelets sufficient speed to find the glove-side, even after trying the deflector Jay Bouwmeester.
Pettersson again gave Boeser a writer's chef, put one on a tee for Nikolay Goldobin on the side of it and started the session for the hat-trick goal.
Boeser gets the handball, the hat-trick
The pre-game buzz was like 'Boeser's advantage of # position of & # 39; bumper played to make his first potential goal of the season. What he benefited was an improved stride and cycling and Pettersson played with the blues.
The first goal of Boeser was more than a roadmap attempt. However, it was impossible to realize that he was open wide that he put the putty before putting the high of the glass. It has the netting, but was placed on the right side of the screen. the left pad of a surprising Allen.
Boeser looked like he was a year ago. He soon appeared on the ice, took a sublime saucer pace of Pettersson and did not show him the eighth goal in 19 games.
He then finished the huddle, his fist since November 4, 2017 when he scored three against the Pittsburgh Penguins at Rogers Arena, with a pistol from the point of doing a blue.
It should not have been that surprising. Boeser had two goals in his previous five games and at least 20 scouts and 38 tried to try, he got posts and crossbars and was burned several times.
Early penalty penalty was really an exciting one
When Erik Gudbranson dropped four-minute high on Alex Steen with the Canucks only for 1-0, it could be a room.
The Blues Home Ice game was given 10th place, but not a few games like Jay Beagle's pairs with Markus Granlund and Antoine Roussel with Loui Eriksson closed the door. And the fact that the Canucks saw just one decline, is a testament to kill the 27-point points to keep his legs.
Markstrom gets win, Allen gets hook
Jacob Markstrom's great save of a whole Vladimir Tarasenko scored from the top not only Boeser's second goal in # 39; The transition, he lost everything from not to three goals on just six shots.
Allen made 26 in 1-0 winning on Winnipeg on Friday and Sunday afternoon with 1,92 goals against control and .937 decides. Markstrom saw more stable and placed for shooters and did not respond to the first shot and then he had to have a rough weapon on the # The back of a snow angel spared.
He also received the post to make a high probability for Zach Sanford and stopped Robert Thomas with a point from his wing. He lost his expression in the & # 39; s third period on & # 39; Twenty shot, when Robert Bortuzzo's crash hit a shot and Markstrom was hard as Jordan Kyrou jumped on # 39; the leap.
No Perron, not enough Bozak
David Perron is the answer to a trivia question of who the Canucks made in 2007 25 25 – they took Patrick White – but the Blueswinger was recovered on Sunday because of his penalties for penalties. He had five penalty points in the last eight games and 10 in & # 39; the last 15.
The Canucks considered Tyler Bozak in a free holiday on July 1, but were from # the price for a third line center. The blues bought three years of $ 5 million and while Bozak was in good shape, he scored only three goals in 28 matches.
