The St. Louis Blues ended a brief two-game losing skid with a win over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday, but the two points may come with a price.
Defenseman Jay Bouwmeester didn’t play a shift for the final six minutes of the third period, but the Blues managed to hang on for a 3-2 victory. Alexander Steen scored the winner, and Vladimir Tarasenko scored his 12th of the season for St. Louis.
“I think he stepped on a crack on the ice. So he’s got a lower-body ailment. We’ll see how he is in the morning,” said Blues head coach Ken Hitchcock, as per Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
