Bumps and bruises for Blues in tough second period

Dallas Stars v St. Louis Blues - Game Six

ST. LOUIS, MO - MAY 9: Alexander Steen #20 of the St. Louis Blues keeps the puck in the Dallas Stars zone in Game Six of the Western Conference Second Round during the 2016 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at the Scottrade Center on May 9, 2016 in St. Louis, Missouri.

The St. Louis Blues are having a rough time so far in Game 2.

Getting generally out-played by the San Jose Sharks has been bad enough through two periods, with San Jose going up 2-0 (thanks in part to Troy Brouwer getting a ton of the post late in the middle frame).

It’s also been a painful start in a more literal way.

During the first period, Alexander Steen seemed to be in a bad way after this knee-to-knee collision:

In the second, Patrik Berglund caught his hip/torso in the bench in an awkward way.

The best bits of news for the Blues:

A) They have time to come back.

B) Even if they fail to do so, it’s just one game.

C) Both Steen and Berglund seemed to shake off whatever issues they were caused. At least as of this writing.
