S16 - Blues gane day 39 (®)

2020-10-15
VHL scores
Saint Louis 1
Minnesota 3

Saint-Louis Mississouri - This was the fourth game between the Blues and the Minnesota Wild this season did not started well but now are doing better. Blues is not the same team as last year, they have lots of pride, fierce, quickness awesome young players and also great veterans players. The Wild are difficult to beat as usually so we hope to get a win here. The Blue machine made several changed to their roster, but it is not paying yet as they are almost last in the VHL. The coach Peter Laviolette decided to go with rookie Pekka Rinne for the game as he usually did in the season, he is taking a chance against the last season VHL cup winner he is a brave coach as we can see. We won the first game 3-2 then we won the second game 4-2, we lost the third game 5-1 and the game today was a win for the Minnesota Wild 3-1
