Blues Drop one in Shootout

For anyone that was thinking about coming to the game and didn’t – well you missed on heck of a hockey game, perhaps one of the most exciting of the season.   There was no slow start in the boys last night as Reid Stefanson scored at the 1:25 mark to open the scoring and shock the Flyers and their fans. Nault and Lewis were in on the assists as well. From there the game settled into a rhythm of back and forth, hard hitting, spectacular saves and some strange (thats what I will call it) calls for the next 40 plus minutes.   The Flyers finally managed to tie things up at the 6 minute mark of the third, however the next shift Matt Leblanc roared back to retake the lead (assists to Esteves and Landry). Things remained that way until 14 seconds left in the game on a mad scramble in the Blues zone while on a power play the Flyers managed to squeeze the biscuit over the goal line to tie things up.   Over time solved nothing so it was off to the dreaded shootout where the Flyers Tristan Keck scored to break the deadlock.   Scott Parsons stopped 41 of 43 and is looking to be heating up as playoffs quickly approach.
