10/12 Blues vs. Avalance Game Summary

Last night was my first game of the season. I went with a new friend of mine, Ben. We met in Clayton and ate dinner at P.F. Chang's before riding the Metrolink out to the Scottrade Center. It worked out quite well, actually, for someone who hasn't ridden on the Metrolink since 1996. And on the way back after the game we rode in the same rail care as Bill Clinton did in 1994! At least, that is what the commemorative plaque said.

As far as the game goes, the first period was an evenly matched affair, with both teams having solid offensive pressure and good defense, with the score ending 1-1. The second period was definitely Colorado's period, as the Blues played quite poorly during this period. They had three separate power plays, and only mustered two shots on goal in all three of them. That is pathetic. The only thing that wasn't pathetic was Manny Legace's play in goal, stopping all sorts of Colorado shots and keeping the Blues in the game. In the third period the Blues came out flying, and they scored three more goals, to end the game with a 4-1 score. The game was fun ('cuz we won!) and I got to hang out with a friend, so it was definitely a good time.
