The Blues offense matched a 25-year low last night. They put just 12 shots on goal against Nashville and had just two in the third period. The last time they did that was on November 19, 1978 against Boston. Luckily two of last night’s shots made it to the back of the net and rookie goalie Curtis Sanford was impenetrable after the first period in a 2-1 overtime win. Sanford allowed a goal at the 6:12 mark of the first, but just 12 seconds later, Pavol Demitra tied it at one. In overtime Justin Papineau scored to give the Blues their third straight victory. The Blues trail the Red Wings by two points with 16 games to play in the regular season.
