"You're not looking at like, 'Uh oh".

But their tortoise-and-the-hare strategy of conceding half of the ice, crouching in the weeds and waiting for a fortuitous bounce is unsustainable against a relentless Minnesota attack that kept 19,000-plus fans on their feet for more than three hours. For us to re-group and come out in the overtime, which I thought was probably our best period to be honest. "We anticipate a long series". In between, he made at least a dozen more superb saves in the performance of his life. Look for a hot St. Louis team to play loose tonight. It was game 1 of the series and both teams came out ready to play in a tight checking affair.

"I feel pretty good", Allen said. "They didn't score either on the power play. I thought we played well". Eric Staal leads Minnesota with 28 goals, Mikael Granlund has 43 assists and Nino Niederreiter has 186 shots on goal. "That's the thing, we can't just rely on Jake to have a performance like that night after night, but we're certainly encouraged that we got the win".

Yeo seems to determined to limit rookie defenseman Jordan Schmaltz's exposure to the Wild, only playing him in situations that best allow him to excel.

The St. Louis Blues hope to take full control of this series by stealing another road game and going up 2-0.

Man, that was a total Mike Yeo win for the Blues in Game 1, wasn't it?

Sure, they need to battle through the Blues' unapologetic dragnet to pounce on Allen's generous rebounds and finish around the net. "That's what it comes down to". Sharks D Brent Burns launched 18 shot attempts (8 SOG) in a 3-2 overtime win in Game One at Edmonton and had a strong possession game alongside partner Paul Martin (21 for, 6 against, 77.8 CF%, 15-3 scoring chances)...

Boudreau liked his team's mindset at Thursday's lightly attended optional practice.

"It was a little deflating there for the last twenty seconds, they made a nice play", Allen told Pang on the Fox Sports Midwest postgame.

Oil prices settle above $50 a barrel
It is also the third time this year that US exports exceeded a million barrels a day, an industry record. USA crude futures were down 19 cents at $50.16 a barrel after slipping back below $50.

Jake Allen steals Game One for the Blues; Lundqvist, Vlasic, Kessel and more in Scott Cullen's Statistically Speaking.

The game Wednesday night started much like many of us had expected. We saw the same out of Milan Lucic previous year in the first round against L.A. That stuff, you know what, you've got to play through that stuff. We know we need to make adjustments and get better. From that point on the Wild out shot St. Louis 42-17 and yet could not get the puck past Allen. 51 saves is nothing to scoff at no matter how many goals you let up, especially if it is only one. Stastny missed the last 10 games of the regular season, and Bortuzzo and Yakupov each sat out the last five games. "They know us", Wild captain Mikko Koivu said.

Best playoff piggyback: Dallas & Vegas hire coaches - The Dallas Stars may have known they were going to hire Ken Hitchcock before the opening night of the NHL playoffs, but with so much attention turned to the league on Wednesday, why not get in on the action with a major announcement, even if you don't have a team in the fight?

They will have to skate and support each other to play keep-away some more.

That might be a stretch.

"You just have to stay positive", Coyle said. That's our mindset right now.

The rest receives its rightful spot in Blues history. "Just get right back at it".
