from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
The St. Louis Blues didn’t want to use injuries as an excuse for their second-round elimination.
To a man, they stated that the Kings were simply the better team.
But starting with a suspected knee injury that star blueliner Alex Pietrangelo tried to play through and being without No. 1 goalie Jaroslav Halak for most of the playoffs with a suspected ankle injury, it’s clear the Blues were a beat-up bunch.
“We’ll let the injury stuff come out over the next couple of days,” said Blues head coach Ken Hitchcock. “But, it’s not great.”
Captain David Backes also played through some sort of stomach ailment, but he didn’t feel like going there either Sunday.
added 9:11pm, Below, find 2 videos, first is Ken Hitchcock post-game and 2nd is Darryl Sutter post-game… Please note, you may have to wait for the video to load, once you see a picture of the coach, hit play. NHL.com must be getting hit hard with video requests.
