Blues Suffer First Loss of Season, Falling 2-1 in OT at Vancouver
The Blues were two minutes and 55 seconds away from their fourth straight win to start the 2016-17 season. Instead St. Louis suffered it’s first loss, 2-1 in overtime to the Canucks on Tuesday night in Vancouver. Vladimir Tarasenko scored in the second period, his fourth tally of the year to give the Blues a 1-0 lead.

The Blues still get one point for sending the game to overtime , giving them a 3-0-1 record.
