The St. Louis Jr. Blues' offense had a big night, peppering the Rochester Ice Hawks with 70 shots throughout the game, to go along with Blake Bjella's shutout. The St. Louis Jr. Blues took the lead late in the first on a goal from Jack Hatton and never looked back.
Jack Hatton contributed with 2 points (1 goal, 1 assist) and Jake Cox chipped in with 2 assists.
In the first period, Hatton opened the scoring for St. Louis with what turned out to be the game winning goal at 15:08 with helpers from his teammates Mcatee and Cox.
During the second, Winter netted a goal at 12:48 with helpers from his linemates, Hatton and Cox.
In the third, Capkovic scored a goal at 6:50 with an assist from Marshall. Monreal put in a goal at 11:48 with helpers from Jones and Shively.
The Jr. Blues’ victory was in no doubt helped out by Bjella’s shutout, as he stopped all 16 of the shots he faced. Bjella’s counterpart, Bucklin, also had a big night, managing to stop 66 of 70, but ultimately fell short.
This win brings the St. Louis Jr. Blues’ record to (33-8-0-0).
