Winning Streak At 11 For The St. Louis Blues

from Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

It took the Blues 51 seasons and 4,023 games to be on the brink of something they had never done before.

So what’s another 34 seconds?

History had to wait briefly Tuesday night as the Blues needed overtime to beat Toronto 3-2 and lift their winning streak to a franchise-record 11 games. The hero was Ryan O'Reilly, which was fitting since he was the only player on the team who played well in the team’s horrendous start to the season. O’Reilly broke up a Toronto scoring opportunity in his own zone, took the puck the length of the ice and scored to give the Blues the win and unleash a level of ecstasty seldom seen at Enterprise Center.

Call it 11th heaven.

“Oh gosh, it’s exciting is what it is,” O’Reilly said. “It’s fun hockey.”

“It’s pretty special,” said defenseman Colton Parayko.
