Post Game: Blues 6, Blue Jackets 2
BLUES 6 | BLUE JACKETS 2
ST. LOUIS, MO
Holding a 2-0 lead in a building that has been a house of horrors for visiting teams this season, the Blue Jackets knew the St. Louis Blues were going to turn up the temperature. But they could not match what the Blues brought in the final 40 minutes, and it made for a long night at Scottrade Center.

The Blues scored six unanswered goals while playing most of the game in the Blue Jackets' end, and emphatically finished the game off in the third period. They scored three times in the third period, but the most important goal came early in the third period off the stick of Patrik Berglund.
Todd Richards, displeased with the Blue Jackets' forwards inability to support the defensemen and goaltender tonight, wanted to see more help inside their own zone. The Blue Jackets, he said, were "under siege" on the back end and between the pipes and they came in waves after falling behind 2-0.
Down 3-2 with 20 minutes to play, the Blue Jackets had an opportunity to get back in the game as the third period began...but it went south quickly. Berglund's goal in the opening minute of the third period was a dagger, and it put the Blue Jackets back on their heels on the first shift of the final stanza.
1. PATRIK BERGLUND (STL)
Berglund, who always seems to play well against the Blue Jackets, scored a pair of goals: the Blues' opening goal in the second period a key one to begin the third period.
2. VLADIMIR SOBOTKA (STL)
A goal and an assist tonight for Sobotka, who tied the game in the second period and was a physical presence in all three zones.
3. VLADIMIR TARASENKO (STL)
Tarasenko was responsible for setting up two of the key goals in the game: Sobotka's tying goal in the second period, and Berglund's 4-2 marker early in the third.
