Troy Brouwer gave the Blues a 3-2 lead in the third period after a crazy sequence against the Blackhawks in Game 7.
After a crazy first 40 minutes of Game 7, the St. Louis Blues and Chicago Blackhawks found themselves tied at two. The Blues missed out on some early scoring chances in the third period and Troy Brouwer almost missed three times. However, after missing the first two times, he didn’t miss with the third attempt as he gave the Blues a 3-2 lead thanks to his relentless effort.
His first attempt went off the post, his second attempt was denied, and his third attempt barely got into the net. It doesn’t matter how you score, it’s that you score. Brouwer scored against his old team in his seventh career game 7. That is also his first career point in a game 7. The Blues acquired Brouwer from the Washington Capitals during the summer in the trade that sent T.J. Oshie to the Capitals. Both teams are finding themselves in the playoffs this season so perhaps that is a trade that benefitted both teams.
Brouwer was noted for not performing well in the playoffs for the Capitals. However, his second point of this postseason could be the one that puts the Blues past their division rival Blackhawks.
