First period wrap: Blues 2, Blackhawks 0
By Jesse Rogers
St. LOUIS -- The
St. Louis Blues
2-0 after the first period at the Scottrade Center.
The Hawks were outshot 5-0 by the time the first television timeout occurred. But the period evened out after that, until
took a bad interference penalty. Then the Blues took control.
On the ensuing power play,
couldn’t corral a shoulder high shot by Kris Stewart and
put in an easy rebound goal.
Just 1:45 later, the Hawks were caught scrambling in their own zone, and with Crawford down and out,
slapped one in a near empty net.
The Hawks had some close-in offensive chances, but goalie
, playing in just his second game of the season, made all the saves. The Hawks were outshot 15-9 in the opening 20 minutes.
