PeriodTotalsEVPP5v3 PPSH5v3 SH

This was an interesting game in that there were no scoring chances in the third period. The only event that I considered labeling as such was a shot by Brad Boyes near the end of the period. While the shot was not taken from a dangerous area of the offensive zone, Boyes managed to use the defenceman Shultz as a screen by shooting the puck between Shultz' legs, thus requiring Backstrom to make a somewhat difficult save. After considering all of the relevant factors, I concluded that the shot was not sufficiently dangerous to warrant counting it as a scoring chance.

The Blues were clearly in shutdown mode and played excellent defensive hockey for the entire period. Particularly impressive was the Blues checking line of Perron-McClement-Crombeen, which Murray had matched up against the Wild's top line of Havlat-Koivu-Brunette. The latter trio was the only Wild forward grouping that was outplayed at EV.
