The Florida Panthers overcame 2-0 and 3-2 deficits to beat the Blues 7-4 at Scottrade Center. Vincent Trocheck scored twice for Florida, which scored three consecutive goals late in the second period to take a 5-3 lead. Colton Sceviour added a shorthanded goal in the third after picking the pocket of Alex Pietrangelo to make it a 6-3 game.
The Blues got off to a quick start with goals from Paul Stastny and Colton Parayko in the first, and Vladimir Tarasenko scored early in the second to put the Blues on top. Tage Thompson also scored for St. Louis.
Mike Yeo was critical of all three phases…offense, defense and goaltending. Alex Steen was a minus-4 and captain Alex Pietrangelo was a minus-3 and was caught several times looking as though he was playing on his heels.
