ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The Blues had the look of a Stanley Cup contender last night.
Not because they dominated the game, they didn’t. The Lightning threatened to spoil Ryan Miller’s home debut scoring twice on the Blues goaltender in the first period.
But Patrik Berglund scored early in the second period and the momentum shifted.
Miller, a longtime NHL veteran, knows it when he sees it.
“Got in the hole twice in the last two games here and have the ability to get out,” says Miller. “It’s not always going to be pretty, it’s not always going to go your way every night and it’s good to see determination and character.”
And Blues went on to take the lead in the third when Alexander Steen scored.
The Blues won it 4-2 and they’re all alone in first place in the Central Division.
