Tampa Bay het ook doele van Ondrej Palat en Anthony Cirelli gekry, en Andrei Vasilevskiy gemaak 26 spaar.
Brandon Saad en Pavel Buchnevich het vir die Blues gedruk. Will Husso het opgehou 31 skote.
St.. Louis starting goaltender Jordan Binnington and defenseman Justin Faulk were placed into COVID-19 protocols before the game. They joined center Tyler Bozak, who went on the list Tuesday.
The Blues recalled goalie Charlie Lindgren from Springfield of the AHL, but due to salary cap issues, he can’t join the team until Friday. St.. Louis had former Grand Valley State player Kyle Konin as the emergency backup goalie. The 23-year old resides in the Tampa area.
Buchnevich scored with the man advantage at 7:16 of the third, and Hedman put the Lightning up 3-2 from just inside the blue line 53 seconds later. Hedman was left alone in the slot and made a nifty move to beat Husso 2:20 later.
Hedman also had two minor penalties during the final period.
Cirelli had a power-play goal early in the third.
The Blues’ second-ranked power play converted their second chance when Saad tied it at 1 by 14:07 of the second off a nifty pass from the blue line by Robert Thomas.
Thomas had two assists, hom gee 20 algehele.
Palat stopped a 10-game goal drought 7:16 midway through the first.
Steven Stamkos, who missed Tuesday’s 4-3 overtime loss at St. Louis due to the birth of his son, assisted on Palat’s goal and has a point (five assists, seven points) in each of his last five games.
