With the game tied at two, the St. Louis Blues turned the puck over three times in the third period leading to three Tampa Bay Lightning goals. The Blues would score two goals late, but come up short 5-4.
For the Lightning, it’s their first win in St. Louis since their first season in the NHL back in 1992, a string of 10 games without a win. The Lightning, the worse team in the NHL with just seven road wins, picked up their fifth road win in a row.
Keith Tkachuk scored his fourth goal in four games, and Brad Boyes scored his 30th of the year in the first period. He’s the first Blues player to score 30 goals in a season since Tkachuk scored 33 in the 2003-04 season. (photo by Bill Greenblatt, UPI)
