The St. Louis Blues and the Pittsburgh Penguins recently met in St. Louis on Saturday night and St. Louis won that match up by a score of 5-2.
On Wednesday night, these two teams would meet each other again in Pittsburgh. Tristan Jarry recorded a 28-save shutout for the Penguins and it was the reason why they took down the Blues by a score of 3-0.
He was poised all game long. Jarry made the big save when he needed to. With all of the injuries Pittsburgh has right now, Tristan Jarry is going to have to play well between the pipes.
One of the reasons why is because Matt Murray is struggling right now and hopefully Head Coach Mike Sullivan continues to ride the hot hand.
Teddy Blueger scored 39 seconds into the game for the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Stefan Noesen scored for Pittsburgh with 40 seconds remaining in the second-period. This was his first game in a Penguins uniform. He provided some energy for this team throughout the game.
Alex Galchenyuk scored on a fast-break for Pittsburgh 4:59 into the third-period.
One of the strangest things is that the Pittsburgh Penguins made this game very boring for the St. Louis Blues. The ironic thing is that St. Louis loves to play a boring style of hockey and that is according to goalie Jake Allen.
Allen did not start in this game for the Blues.
Jordan Binnington recorded 30 saves for St. Louis.
These two teams split the season series.
It is very possible that these two teams could meet each other again in the Stanley Cup Finals in 2020.
