Ryan Miller earned his 29th career shutout and lead the Blues to a 1 to 0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night. This marked Ryan Miller’s first shutout in the Blue note, after 28 shutouts back in Buffalo.
It would not only take sixty minutes of regulation time, but also five minutes of sudden death overtime and a shootout to determine the winner of this content. Neither team could muster enough offensive pressure to put a goal into the net and break the stalemate.
Of course, T.J. Oshie was first up for the Blues in the shootout rounds. He didn’t disappoint, his sweet back hand move went top shelf over the blocker of Ray Emery and gave the Blues momentum moving forward in the shootout. Kevin Shattenkirk finished off the Flyers by putting one just under the blocker and above the leg pad of Emery. Ryan Miller stood solid in net and would not allow any of the Flyers to get by him even in the shootout.
The Blues have their own franchise record tied at 51 wins, and are striving for 52 when they face off against the Buffalo Sabres, Thursday April 3rd, at 7PM (CST).
