Ryan Reaves had appeared in 17 playoff games for St. Louis prior to Wednesday, and had yet to hit the score sheet. That changed in Game 4 between the Blues and Minnesota Wild.

Reaves opened the scoring with his first career playoff goal and point, blasting home a shot that beat Devan Dubnyk. Trailing 2-1 in the series and searching for answers after Game 3, the Blues took off from there.

They added two more goals -- from Vladimir Tarasenko and David Backes -- to take a 3-0 lead over the Wild by the 10:06 mark of the opening period. The Blues maintained that lead into the intermission.
