Allen stops 51 as Blues take Game 1 in overtime

His attempted center for Parise hit a lunging Kyle Brodziak in front, and bounced right to the blade of Parise, who roofed a shot over Jake Allen for his second goal of the series.

"It's a good start for us, but the job's not over yet". "Tomorrow is a great opportunity for us to get back on the board". That's all that matters.

All the Corsi in the world doesn't matter when you're forced to take low-percentage shots, and that's what the Wild have been settling for in this first-round series.

"That's playoff hockey. Sometimes it's a odd game", said Wild goalie Devan Dubnyk, who made 24 saves. St. Louis Blues' goalie Jake Allen (34) catches the puck during the third period of Game 2 of an NHL hockey first-round playoff series against the Minnesota Wild, Friday, April 14, 2017, in St. Paul, Minn. It's also the second time in the past month that tactic has produced a one-goal St. Louis win over the Wild. Parise tapped the puck behind Allen, making it the third time this season that the Wild have scored vs. St. Louis with their goalie pulled. At least they know that they need to ramp things up. "We extended the game and then you never know what can happen in overtime but you've got to score more than one".

Game 1 between the Blues and the Wild in Minnesota should not have disappointed anyone watching from a hockey standpoint, but surely upset Wild fans in the arena after Joel Edmundson's overtime victor. Zac gets the Blues reaction to Allen's superb effort in Game One. "So obviously, it's a bit of a dagger when that puck goes in".

"This time of year, you always look for things you can do better, but we played really well", Parise said.

The Blues played horribly in Game 1.

The Blues took the lead after an interception by Alexander Steen of Jonas Brodin's clearing attempt preceding a pass to Vladimir Sobotka in the slot. St. Louis could play better today, but the Blues aren't likely to get that kind of performance from Allen again tonight.

"Keep your head up". "I think you've got to come back to work and play a similar game".

"It was a heck of a game", Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said. "We had 52 shots on the net". We execute on some of those chances and it's a different story. "We're down 1-0. Now we have to even it up".

In Game 2, Minnesota really has nothing to change in their game plan, other than hope Allen makes mistakes in net for the Blues.

Defenseman Colton Parayko, who completed his second National Hockey League season and had two goals and five assists in 20 games last postseason will once again be called out in the playoffs.

Blues coach Mike Yeo argued the Wild's shot attempts "will be inflated every game", reports Chad Graff of the Pioneer Press. But it lay free on top of the crease and Parise poked it past Allen for a 1-1 tie with 2:16 left in the second period. "We need to play better defense and play on the same page more".

Koivu was victimized with 2:12 remaining in overtime when 39-goal scorer Vladimir Tarasenko pirouetted in the right faceoff circle to shed Minnesota's best defensive forward and fed streaking defenseman Joel Edmundson for the victor.
