I’m sorry to show the face of Jori Lehtera. I know he’s not well liked by Blues fans. And that’s justified, because he’s paid like a second-line player, but he produces like a fourth-line player.
Jake Allen makes a save against the Minnesota Wild in Round 1.
I’m impressed that the Blues are coming back to St. Louis with a 2-0 lead in their series with the Minnesota Wild in Round 1. I’m impressed with the play of Jake Allen, whose struggles mid-season seem so far away now. I’m impressed with the timely goals of unlikely scorer Joel Edmundson, who has 1 less goal in the playoffs than he did the entirety of the regular season (2 to 3). And I’m impressed with the maturity of young players like Ivan Barbashev and Zach Sanford in the first two games.
