Louis edges Wild 2-1, leads series 2-0

St. Louis Blues' Colton Parayko and teammate Joel Edmundson celebrate after Edmundson scored a goal against the Minnesota Wild during the second period of Game 2 of an NHL hockey first-round playoff series Friday

Some days, it seems, you just can't win.

Minnesota Wild and St. Louis Blues players miss it up by the Wild net during the first period of Game 1 of an NHL hockey first-round playoff series Wednesday, April 12, 2017, in St. Paul, Minn.

"It was a heck of a game", Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said.

In the first game of the Minnesota Wild's postseason, the frequent-attack offense was met by a brick wall performance from the St. Louis Blues' goalie and a 2-1 loss in overtime. The overtime hero in the team's 2-1 win in Game 1 scored his second in as many playoff games and the third of his career in the postseason to put the Blues ahead 1-0 just 3:51 into the second period. And now we're in the playoffs, and everything is different - none of it in a good way. "We had 90-some shots at the net".

"I think we know that we have to be better", Yeo said.

United Kingdom lacks understanding of events in Syria: Russia
Russian Federation continues to back the Assad regime and denies the Syrian leader gassed his own people. Activist Alaa Al-Youssef said that the strike which killed a woman hit a residential neighbourhood.

"I don't think they were, "Oh, woe is me"-type thing". "We went in there and found a way to win, and that's what we've got to do again. It's unfortunate when you come out on the losing side of one of those". "It was a good move and a great play".

And then some, if you ask Boudreau or probably anyone else in the Xcel Energy Center Wednesday evening (and into Thursday).

However, the Blues do have two wins and have a huge upper hand going home for the next two games.

Head coach Mike Yeo counted on his forward depth eventually punching through in Game 2 like it did in Game 1, and it worked. "Really not much to say". "We're going to have to. look for places we can be better and worry about getting that next game and not dwell on the fact that we're down 0-2". It came four on four, with Scottie Upshall and Charlie Coyle in the penalty box for roughing, a development with which Minnesota goalie Devan Dubnyk disagreed.

Like I said, the Wild did nearly all they could on Wednesday night in Game 1, and were unlucky in facing Allen in what was statistically the best game of his career. If not, then luck had a lot to do with it and even if they play better, that can swing back the other way. "I saw the puck squirting free and I tried to jump and poke it and I think my shaft hit the post and propelled the puck out of the net".

Putin says expects 'fake' gas attacks to discredit Syria's Assad
The Kremlin previously refused to say whether Putin would meet with Tillerson in Moscow . He said the United Nations should first investigate the attack.

As the game carried over into overtime the intensity grew exponentially.

"For us, there's another six games to be played". That uncertainty of a game ending at any point where games can stretch from a few extra seconds to a couple extra hours leaves us captivated. "That's unacceptable in a 1-1 hockey game to make that call, it just doesn't make sense".

The end result seemed weird when you factor in things like this: Charlie Coyle was one of four Wild players with at least six shots on net, and one of his best opportunities came from the slot in overtime. Edmundson admitted that the puck just happened to land on his stick out of the madness-all he did was punch it home.

Shot attempts in Game 1 between Minnesota Wild and St. Louis Blues. "He knows me", Allen said. Collapse down onto Allen and protect the net with vigor while waiting out loose pucks and bounces in the offensive zone.
