For the first time in nine games, the St. Louis Blues failed to score on the power play. In fact, they failed to score at all as the Blues dropped two out of three this weekend in western Canada losing Sunday at Calgary 1-0.
After Ben Bishop recorded a shutout in the win at Edmonton on Friday, he got the start again and held the Flames scoreless for two periods. David Moss, broke a scoreless tie with his 15th goal of the season, which came less than six minutes into the third period.
The Blues came close to tying the game with less than three minutes to play when Brad Boyes banked a shot off Calgary goalie Miikka Kiprusoff, but it was wiped out from a high stick. Kiprusoff made 27 saves in the win.
The Blues then shipped Boyes to the Buffalo Sabres after the game for a second round draft pick in 2012. Boyes, has 12 goals in 61 games this year, but did score a career high 41 back in the 2007-08 season. Boyes has a year left on his contract.
The team also waived veteran goalie Ty Conklin. If he is not claimed by any team, the Blues must decide between Conklin and Bishop as the backup to Jaroslav Halak who will return from a hand injury soon. It is most likely that Conklin will be assigned to Peoria.
