ST. LOUIS 6 DALLAS 1 (St. Louis wins the series 4- 3)
I was kind of surprised to see Brian Elliott between the pipes for the Blues after he was pulled in Game 6 and Jake Allen was strong between the pipes for the remainder of the first period as well as the final two stanzas (although he only faced seven shots), but Ken Hitchcock went with the goalie who got the Blues to this point and it was the right call.
Elliott stopped 31 shots in a 6-1 win by the Blues in the decisive Game 7. St. Louis ended up winning three-of-four on Dallas ice as the Stars could not find the solution to defeat the Blues at home.
The Blues scored three times in the first period as Robby Fabbri scored on the power play at the 5:23 mark on a scramble in front of the net.
The score remained 1-0 until the Blues scored twice in the last two minutes on goals by Paul Stastny and Patrik Berglund (with just four ticks remaining on the clock) to give St. Louis was ended up to be an insurmountable lead.
Kari Lehtonen played so well in Game 6 but that was not the case in Game 7 as he made five saves on eight shots before being pulled at the start of the second period for Antti Niemi. It was the third time in this round that Dallas coach Lindy Ruff switched his starting goaltender.
Elliott continued his brilliance throughout the game but lost his shutout bid when Patrick Eaves scored to make it 5-1. Vladimir Tarasenko finished the scoring with an empty-netter with 4:54 to go in the game.
Niemi stopped eight-of-10 shots for the Stars.
Stephen Johns led both teams with four hits.
Stastny and Fabbri each joined Brouwer with a couple of assists apiece with Berglund and Backes each had one in addition to their goal.
Pietrangelo did yeoman’s work on the blueline and led all skaters in time on ice at 26:12 including 3:38 shorthanded. While his stats were lacking this season, he has been an important cog on the Blues defensive corps.
The Blues won their second consecutive series in seven games and they are headed to their first Conference Final since 2001. It will start on Sunday.
