SO SAD: st Louis top scorer R.Thomas C have announced to leave and…

(AP) — CALGARY, Alberta With 48 seconds remaining in the third period, Brandon Saad scored his second goal of the game, and the St. Louis Blues overcame the Calgary Flames 4-3 on Tuesday night.

Saad, who led the visitors with five shots, remarked, “I felt good.” “It feels good to see them go in, but you want to see more of those go in.” I’m glad I could help tonight.

St. Louis also had goals from Brayden Schenn and Jordan Kyrou, while Jordan Binnington made 32 stops.

Calgary, which has dropped three straight games, got its offensive from MacKenzie Weegar, Noah Hanifin, and Yegor Sharangovich. After missing three games due to a lower-body ailment, Jacob Markstrom made 22 saves in his comeback.

With a short-handed goal late in the second, St. Louis began their comeback from a 3-1 deficit.

Schenn capitalized on a mistake made by Weegar at the St. Louis blue line, taking advantage of the opportunity to break free and score his 11th goal of the year past Markstrom.

With their eleventh short-handed goal, the Blues and Dallas Stars are now tied for first place in the league.

At 6:56 in the third, Kyrou scored his 13th goal, just inside the goalpost, to knot the score 3-3. He did it by skating into the slot unopposed off the side boards.

Saad scored the game-winning goal by gaining possession of the puck inside his own blue line, advancing it into the neutral zone, and wristing a 50-foot shot that struck Markstrom’s glove side goalpost.

With 13 goals this season, Saad stated, “I was just trying to move him side to side and shoot through a screen and it found a way in for me.”

Despite the puck, Markstrom claimed he still ought to have had it.

That is difficult. It’s obvious that there is a ridiculous skip off the ice and post and in given the clock, remaining time, and tie game. I’m not sure. Naturally, I have to put an end to that one,” Markstrom remarked.

“I assumed everything would be alright; I just assumed it would hit the pad.”

Weegar’s 11 goals, which have already surpassed his career high of eight, tie him for third place among defenseman in the league behind Quinn Hughes (12) and Rasmus Dahlin (13).

The Blues have the best winning % in the NHL(.900) when they score first (18-2-0), but when they don’t, they have the opposite record. However, Tuesday’s victory raises their record to 5-18-2 when down early.

With two games remaining, the Blues sit three points behind Nashville for the second wild-card slot.

Schenn remarked, “These are four-point games, big wins, teams you need to beat in order to climb the standings.” Gutsy victory comeback. The fact that it was regulated was also pleasant.
