Bruins Fall to Blues in Shootout 2-1

David Krejci

After a disappointing loss to Washington on Friday night, the Bruins hoped to bounce back on Saturday, hosting the St. Louis Blues. Unfortunately, the B’s couldn’t stop hot Blues goalie Jaroslav Halak as Boston lost the game 2-1 in a shootout.

Scoring started in the first period as St. Louis drew first blood. Ex-Bruin Vladimir Sobotka scored his first goal of the season for an early 1-0 lead for the Blues. Goalies Halak and Tuukka Rask refused to budge in the 2nd period as both teams went scoreless.

With just 7 minutes remaining in the 3rd period, Gregory Campbell snuck one past Halak to tie the score at 1-1 and to stop Halak’s scoreless streak at 150 minutes.

It should be noted that the Bruins missed two goals by mere inches during this game, both by Nathan Horton. Horton thought he had his first goal in the first period when his shot bounced behind Halak and the red light went on, signaling a goal. Upon review, the goal was not allowed. Skip forward to the 2nd period where Horton again shot one that bounced off the top of the goal and bounced just in front of the line, but again, Halak was able to grab the puck before it went in.

In the shootout, T.J. Oshie and Brad Boyes scored for St. Louis and rookie Tyler Seguin netted the only goal for Boston as the Blues left the Garden with a 2-1 win.

Injury Note

Bad news for Boston as David Krejci had to be helped off the ice after a hit from T.J. Oshie in the opening minute of overtime. He is expected to miss up to a week of action.
