St. Louis Blues beat Chicago in overtime again

Vladimir Tarasenko scored the tying goal with 6.4 seconds left in regulation and Barret Jackman got the winner in overtime as St. Louis beat Chicago 4-3 to take a 2-0 lead in their best-of-seven, first-round playoff series.


The Associated Press

ST. LOUIS – Vladimir Tarasenko and St. Louis were in trouble Saturday before a vicious hit by Chicago defenseman Brent Seabrook provided an opening for the Blues.

That little crack was all St. Louis needed to put another dent in the Blackhawks’ bid for a second consecutive Stanley Cup title.

Seabrook’s blow to the head of David Backes led to a six-on-four power play for St. Louis that produced Tarasenko’s tying goal with 6.4 seconds left in regulation, and low-scoring defenseman Barret Jackman ended the game with a drive through traffic, giving the Blues a 4-3 overtime victory.

St. Louis has a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven, first-round Western Conference series. The Blues won the opener in three overtimes.

Chicago goaltender Corey Crawford said he was screened on the winning goal, adding, “I had my pads together, but there was a little space there and it just kind of squeezed through.”
