About Last Night

  • The St. Louis Blues punched their ticket to the Western Conference Finals last night with a double overtime 2-1 victory over the Dallas Stars. While Ben Bishop was fantastic is goal for the Stars stopping 52 shots, but it was Pat Maroon who would tap a loose puck in the crease past Bishop at the 85 minute mark of the game to win it. The Blues now await the winner of tonight’s Sharks vs Avalanche game seven.
