After a lukewarm reception to the first two games, all eyes were on the St. Louis Blues as they took the ice for their third game of the season. This pivotal match was expected to set the tone for the team’s performance in the first half of the season. However, both Brayden Schenn and Craig Berube were quick to acknowledge the team’s struggles with executing plays at a satisfactory level and with enough speed, as they addressed the media after the game. The Blues’ power play has been lackluster so far, failing to score in any of the first three games, and their penalty kill currently ranks as the worst in the league. The most damage was done on Thursday night (Oct. 19), when the Blues only managed to kill off one of the four penalties they faced.
