    导出博客文章BOSTON -- The St. Louis Blues turned around a listless start by getting gritty
    in the second period.Robert Bortuzzo and Paul Stastny scored 2:12 apart in the
    second and Jake Allen had 39 saves, helping the Blues beat the Boston Bruins 4-2
    on Tuesday night despite getting just seven shots on net in the first 20
    minutes.We were so sideways in the first period trying to make plays that werent
    there, coach Ken Hitchcock said. Once our attack went direct, I thought the
    second period was the best weve played on the road.Star Bruins defenseman Zdeno
    Chara played just one shift in the second period before exiting with an
    undisclosed injury. With Boston using only five defenseman, St. Louis was able
    to wear the Bruins down.We got caught in our own end at times for long periods
    of time and then we had some guys that were out there tired, Boston coach Claude
    Julien said.The Blues won their fourth straight and put an end to a four-game
    road losing streak. Hitchcock said the turnaround was remarkable and simple. The
    Blues kept control of the puck in the offensive zone, kept it moving and got
    themselves in position to capitalize on rebounds.I thought in the second period
    we had a lot of participants. Were still not there yet, but the second period
    was a marked improvement from what weve been playing on the road before,
    Hitchcock said. It was a direct contrast to the first period.Jori Lehtera scored
    twice for St. Louis, including a shot into an empty net with 1:16 left just
    after Allen stopped a one-timer to preserve the lead. Colton Parayko and Patrik
    Berglund each had two assists.Longtime Blues captain David Backes scored for
    Boston in his first game against his former club, putting the Bruins up 1-0
    early in the first with the 20,000th goal in franchise history. Montreal is the
    only other NHL team with 20,000 goals.Dominic Moore also scored for the Bruins,
    who played much of the last two periods without Chara.Hopefully its very
    temporary and hell be back in short order, Backes said.Boston lost for just the
    third time this season with Tuukka Rask starting in goal. Rask had 24 saves for
    the Bruins, who had won four of five.After a troubling first period, the Blues
    had 14 shots in the second and scored three times to take a 3-2 lead into the
    third.I think we were just playing on our heels a little bit, Stastny said. We
    were kind of playing wishing hockey a little bit, watching too much, trying to
    go for whole plays instead of playing that simple game. Youve just got to find a
    way to possess the puck, get it on the forecheck and create your own chances.
    Thats what we started doing.Lehtera tied it at 1 when he tipped Paraykos past
    Rask 3:23 into the second. Boston challenged the goal but lost when the
    officials reviewed it and found there was no interference on Rask.Moore put
    Boston back up briefly with a wrist shot over Allens glove for a short-handed
    goal at 8:59 of the second.Bortuzzo backhanded in a wide rebound to tie it again
    with 6:01 left in the second for his first goal of the season, then Stastny gave
    St. Louis its first lead when he poked in another rebound off a shot by Jaden
    Schwartz.Backes, who signed with Boston as a free agent July 1 after spending
    his first 10 seasons with St. Louis, knocked in a rebound from in front of the
    crease when Allen couldnt control Torey Krugs slap shot 7:44 into the game.Game
    notes Krugs assist on the opening goal was the 100th in his career. ... LW
    Alexander Steen did not travel with the Blues and missed his third straight game
    with an upper-body injury. ... RW David Pastrnak, who leads Boston with 10
    goals, missed his third consecutive game with an undisclosed injury.UP
    NEXTBlues: At Washington on Wednesday night, wrapping up a quick visit to the
    East Coast with back-to-back games.Bruins: At Ottawa on Thursday night for an
    Eastern Conference opponent after playing five straight against Western
    Conference teams.

    . Capitals head coach Adam Oates said Ovechkin was injured
    in the first period against the Vancouver Canucks on Monday and clarified it was
    not a head injury.Nothing has been set in stone regarding Kris Letangs future in
    Pittsburgh just yet. Letangs agent Kent Hughes met with Penguins general manager
    Ray Shero in Boston on Wednesday regarding his clients status with the club and
    didnt reveal much in whats widely characterized as a pivotal moment in the
    all-star defencemans career. "Weve agreed to have further talks," Hughes told
    TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun on Wednesday afternoon. "Not going to say more
    at this time." With the salary cap going down and $18.2 million tied up in
    Sidney Crosby and a newly-signed Evgeni Malkin, theres been much speculation on
    whether the Penguins will keep Letang, who is entering the final year of a
    four-year contract.dddddddddddd. The Penguins surprisingly quick exit in the
    Eastern Conference Final against the Boston Bruins, combined with the high price
    hell likely command has prompted debate on whether the Penguins will re-sign or
    trade him. Letang, a finalist for the Norris Trophy this spring, finished second
    in the scoring race among NHL defencemen this season despite missing more than a
    quarter of the campaign. The 26-year-old Montreal native had 38 points in 35
    games and was the only blueliner to score at a point-per-game rate.
