“I think in the third period we didn’t come out with enough urgency,” Blues coach Craig Berube said. “It looked like we were too late, and we have to be better on the penalty kill and the power play. We had three power plays in the first period, we didn’t get much, and they scored two power-play goals on us. That’s the game , so we have to be better.”

DeBrusk gave Boston a 1-0 lead at 13:34 of the first period, driving through the slot and receiving a backhand pass from To David Pastor in the power play. Marchand had the secondary assist.

“That’s what they’re looking for because it’s a money game, and they still find ways to make plays,” DeBrusk said. “In my goal, I knew the puck was going. I didn’t know how, but I knew it. [Pastrnak] I was going to try it and it caught me off guard.”

Schenn tied it 1-1 at 11:37 of the second period, completing a go-ahead with Jordan Kyrou at the door

“The effort is there. We showed up tonight,” Schenn said. “We competed hard, that’s a good team over there. You know, we just have to find a way to score goals and get the results we want.”

“It was great to be back in Boston, you could tell our players are really excited,” Montgomery said. “I didn’t think the second period was very good for us. I thought St. Louis was coming at us, and we didn’t respond to their push, but we came back in the third, and I liked how we took over. the game.”
