That urgency the Blues had, plus the talent disparity between the teams right now, carried St. Louis on Thursday to a 5-2 victory. Thomas Vanek scored early in the game to put the Wings in front. But from there, the Blues were the better team, way more physical than the Wings, using their size, and capitalizing with their greater offensive depth. BOX SCORE: Blues 5, Red Wings 2 Blues forward Ivan Barbashev scored two goals in the second period, breaking a 1-1 tie, before Vanek cut the lead to 3-2. But Blues forward Patrick Maroon scored less than two minutes later to give St. Louis back its two-goal lead, and Barbashev scored into an … [Read more...] about Physical, determined St. Louis Blues too much for Detroit Red Wings

Visit The Boston Globe Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Comment on this Scroll to top of page By Dave Barry December 30, 2018 We can summarize 2018 in two words: It boofed.
