S18 - Day 3 Blues game (®)

2021-05-02
VHL scores
Saint Louis 3
Kings 4

Saint-Louis Mississouri - This was the first matchup this season between these two teams, Kings did not make any big move in the off season and this might be a mistake but the Blue machine this year is not the same team as last year, they have lots of pride, fierce and great young players. The Kings are always hard to beat and this season is the same as always and we are waiting for them and hope to crush them. The Blue machine made several changed to their roster, and so far it is not the start they wanted.

VHL scores
Saint Louis 2 VS 1 Pittsburgh

Saint-Louis Mississouri - This was the first time of the season the Pittsburgh  Penguins and the Saint Louis Blues were on the same ice, Pittsburgh have one of the good team of the league so this was a great challenge for the Blue machine. Pittsburgh also have signe lot of free agent prior the VHL season start,  So this game was the challenge of two good goalies of the league, Howard versus Rinne. The face of the Penguins changed a lot this season but gm McGowan is looking for some deal to improve his roster as we speak. The Blue machine made many changes that are paying early in the season.
