After a successful run to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Blues were hoping to build off that success. Unfortunately this season has been a struggle and the Blues currently sit 12th in the Western Conference.

From struggles with goaltender Jordan Binnington, to not getting the effort they'd like on the ice. Things have just not gone how they'd hoped and tonight things got even worse for the Blues. In the very 1st period of tonight's game the Blues were called for a penalty, that I'm not sure I've ever seen called.

The St. Louis Blues were given an "ineligible player" penalty to start the game tonight, as they started F Brandon Saad when they were supposed to start F Brayden Schenn.

The Oilers capitalized, making it 1-0 63 seconds in on a goal from Zach Hyman.

When the Blues submitted their lineup they penciled Brayden Schenn into their starting lineup, but instead they sent out Brandon Saad. Unfortunately for the Blues the referees caught on 30 seconds into the period and blew play dead to assessed the Blues coach a penalty. This season continues to go from bad to worse for the Blues.
