Video: Blues’ power play was a big problem Saturday

Apr 28, 2012, 10:36 PM EDT

The St. Louis Blues not only failed to score on their three power-play opportunities, they allowed the game-winning goal while the Los Angeles Kings were shorthanded.

You can check out Matt Greene‘s shorthanded goal below:

It’s worth noting that St. Louis’ power play wasn’t an issue in the first round against the San Jose Sharks and that was the first shorthanded goal that they’ve allowed in the playoffs.

On the flip side, Los Angeles has now scored three shorthanded goals in six playoff games. The Kings are not a team you want to take lightly, even when they’re down a man.

    Do you have a video of the hit that lead to the power play that this goal was scored on? I think that is a little more important to Blues fans than a shorthanded goal. I can see how the Blues were a little slow to react at the start of the power play due to the nature of the hit that caused it.

    The hit?? Watch the video of the “hit.” king put one hand on him and he fell forward. I do hope he gets better soon though.

    Y’know the object of the power play is to score goals. How can Hitch coach the power play when the importance of scoring goals does not exist in his core beliefs? Why do I keep getting premonitions that Hitch’s stay in St Louis will be short and that he’ll wind up in TBay where he will convert Stamkos into a well rounded 25 goal scorer? That would be freakin’ awesome!
