A recap of tonight’s Conference III playoff action with help from the geniuses at SportsYapper:

BJx1PsPCMAE2S77Los Angeles 2, St. Louis 1: Here’s your opening strategy tip and a roster note. Ah, simpler times.

Not sure if this is a total for tonight or for the series. Pretty intense if scoreless first period.

But that didn’t last very long as Jeff Carter opened things early in the second and Blues fans have seen this movie before (it was on the HBO Free Preview Week after Real Sex). Serious Yapp Fancystats work.

Blues people seem to really like Alex Steen, presumably because his name is easy to spell. Ermmaybe not.

Turkey hunt yaps.

Carter adds a second early in the third.

OK, maybe a little drastic, but you don’t wanna head back to LA down 3-2, I guess. Dour days in the Lou.

BUT WAIT. Alex Pietrangelo with a miracle late in the third ties it.

Just in case you didn’t know, overtime in the playoffs is different.

Real Fake Vaguely Eastern European Bad Guy Slava Voynov scores the OT winner.

Ya got trouble …
