Los Angeles 4, St. Louis 3: After Saturday’s open-net missing debacle, the Blues practiced something different. It’s probably just the rotgut you drank with your toasted ravioli and awful pizza. David Backes forced the fifth faceoff in the first 72 seconds of the game with his goal to open the scoring, followed shortly thereafter by poor T.J. Oshie getting one on the power play.
