A Downward Spiral?

You know a game didn’t break your way when Jeff Carter is able to bank his own rebound off Roman Polak’s mouth for the third and winning goal.

After giving up four goals in the first period, the St. Louis Blues never recovered, losing 5-2 in Game 2 on Monday vs. Los Angeles.

Los Angeles Kings forward Anze Kopitar scored two of the four goals in the first period, as the Kings came out of the block sprinting past a once again lack luster St. Louis Blues squad. Tonight’s win is the fifth straight postseason win for the Los Angeles Kings, and now the series moves back to the West coast.

  1. I watched the game on tv last night and couldn't believe what I was seeing. It was very hard at times to watch, to say the least.

    Home ice is suppose to be an advantage, right? Maybe, just maybe, the tables will be turned out in LA.

    Okay, headed over to NoCoastBias now. GREAT post as always. GO BLUES!!

  2. It's a shame the boys didn't go all the way this year. Now I just have more time to devote to Cardinal baseball!
