Blues Drop First at Home to the Predators after the Gimmick (I mean shootout)
After getting the news that T.J. Oshie is going to miss three months recovering from ankle surgery, the Blues looked to put last night's debacle behind them and continue their undefeated stretch at home. They accomplished the former, but not the latter, losing in a shootout to the Nashville Predators. The Blues definitely tightened the ship and Jaroslav Halak rebounded from last night's performance, but the Blues coughed up the lead in the third period and couldn't win in regulation. Marcel Goc's sweet move ended the shootout after Pekka Rinne made all the saves he needed to. At least there were no pre-game scuffles over the warm-up soccer game.
