Another slow start combined with a failed power-play attack added up to the same old decision for the Blues: an “L” in the loss column. The Blues wasted six power play chances while Chicago capitalized on two early man-advantages of their own to skip by St. Louis 3-1.
The win stopped Chicago’s eight-game losing streak. Blackhawk winger Radim Vrbata knocked home two 1st period power-play goals to give Chicago the lead. The team had been in an 0-for-25 power-play slump.
The Blues’ have dropped four of their past five games. Curtis Sanford made 15 saves, but earned his third loss on the season. The Blues will try to turn things around when they host Edmonton Sunday.
