Blues 3, Predators 0: Halak Shuts Out Nashville

Dilip Vishwanat

In an 82-game season, every team is going to have a stinker here or there... but in a 48-game season they stink a little more, don't they?

Tonight's game was a pretty classic example of a deep, strong team shutting things down on home ice. The Predators had difficulty creating any offensive threat, and went down 3-0 to suffer their first regulation loss of the season.

There's not much to comment on, just toss this one in the dumpster and move on to Anaheim for Saturday night.

You might be surprised to see any positive results here, but the balance of Totals Shots (including even strength & special teams situations) was only 41-34 for St. Louis.
