Another game, another tie. Unlike Wednesday’s 2-2 draw with the Stars, when the Blues gave up a 2-0 lead in the first period, St. Louis was the one who had to come back in a 4-4 stalemate with the Rangers. Bobby Holik and Mikael Samuelsson put New York up 2-0. But Steve Martins and Keith Tkachuk evened it up before the end of the first. In fact St. Louis took a 4-3 lead in the third thanks to Tkachuk’s second goal of the night, but Samuelsson also struck for the second time. His goal came 45 seconds after Tkachuk’s. The good news for the Blues is that Detroit lost. With the point for the tie, St. Louis is now three points ahead of the Wings in the Central.
