The St. Louis Blues set a franchise record by winning their fourth consecutive game to start a season, handing the New York Rangers their third straight loss in the process by a score of 5-3.
Jaroslav Halak weathered an early Rangers storm, stopping 22 out of 24 shots in the first two periods of the game. The Rangers scored one more goal in the third period, but only fired five more shots on goal.
Moral victories for the Rangers
At 1-4-0 with a three-game losing streak, the Rangers probably don’t want to hear about silver linings, but their fans might.
As mentioned before, New York at least went all-out in those first two periods.
Martin Biron faltered, opening the door for Henrik Lundqvist to build his confidence back up a bit in relief during the third period. The Blues really poured it on with 17 shots in the final frame, but Lundqvist only allowed one goal.
The Blueshirts get a little time to gather themselves, as they don’t play again until they visit the also-struggling Capitals in Washington on Wednesday.
The real bright spot might be that the Rangers only have four more away games left until they finally play their home-opener, though.
