EDMONTON [url=http://www.officialoilers.com/authentic-adidas-customized]Custom Edmonton Oilers Jerseys[/url] , Alberta (AP) A long look at a close call helped the St. Louis Blues take two points Tuesday night and left the Edmonton Oilers scratching their heads.Pat Maroon was credited with the tiebreaking goal following a replay review early in the third period, and St. Louis went on to a 4-1 victory over Edmonton.David Perron, Vladimir Tarasenko and Jaden Schwartz also scored for the Blues, who have won three of four. Brayden Schenn had three assists.It was a real solid team effort, interim coach Craig Berube said. Man to man, everybody was dialed in and played a real solid team game for 60 minutes. Special teams were big, we scored a big power-play goal [url=http://www.officialhockeypanthersshop.com]www.officialhockeypanthersshop.com[/url] , the penalty kill was excellent.Jesse Puljujarvi scored for the Oilers, who had won six straight home games.Maroons second goal of the season came 2:19 into the final period. Officials determined the puck crossed the line during a goal-mouth scramble, even though initially no goal was called on the ice.The way it was explained to us was that he pushed on the puck, he didnt push on the pad, Oilers coach Ken Hitchcock said. The pad happened to go with the puck. That was the way it was explained to us. They said they had an overhead view that said the puck was in before the push started. The look that we had was different. So what are you going to do?Maroon was just happy the goal counted.I think the longer (the review) goes, the better it is for us. I think if it goes longer, theyre making a decision if it crossed the line [url=http://www.officialhockeypanthersshop.com/authentic-adidas-t-shirts]Florida Panthers T-Shirts Authentic[/url] , and it went long to see if it was goaltender interference, too, he said. It means a lot. Ive been struggling a lot and I havent been going to the net as much and I havent been finding ways to get the puck in the net.Edmonton forward Jujhar Khaira was serving a five-minute major for cross-checking when the Blues added to their lead as Tarasenko ended a seven-game drought with his 10th goal of the season.Schwartz put the game away with an empty-netter.St. Louis went ahead eight minutes into the first period when Perron beat Oilers goalie Cam Talbot up high with a wrist shot for his 11th goal of the season.The Blues had 13 first-period shots, while the Oilers only put eight on St. Louis starter Jake Allen, who finished with 22 saves.Edmonton came close five minutes into the second period, but Connor McDavid ripped a shot off the crossbar. The Oilers got the tying goal a couple of minutes after that, however [url=http://www.officialhockeypanthersshop.com/authentic-adidas-hoodie]Florida Panthers Hoodies Authentic[/url] , when Puljujarvi scored on a one-timer a play that withstood a replay review for a potential offside call.Edmonton defenseman Caleb Jones picked up his first NHL point with an assist.The Oilers came close to grabbing the lead early in the third when Khairas shot got behind Allen before being fished out to safety by defender Joel Edmundson.Maroons winner came minutes later.NOTES: It was the second of three meetings between the teams. Edmonton won the first one 3-2 in a shootout on Dec. 5. Allen allowed 10 first-period goals on 40 shots in his previous four starts, but blanked Edmonton in the opening period this time.UP NEXTBlues: The second stop on a three-game Western Canada swing comes Thursday in Vancouver.Oilers: Host the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday, the second game of a five-game homestand. BOSTON (AP) The Bruins didnt seem like the team with the most to gain until it was too late Sunday night.Roberto Luongo came off the bench to shut down Boston in the third period, and the Florida Panthers dashed the Bruins hopes of getting the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs with a 4-2 win.The Bruins trailed Tampa Bay by a point heading into the regular-season finale but couldnt top a Panthers team that was eliminated from postseason contention Saturday.You would have hoped the urgency would have been there with an opportunity to win the division, Bruins forward David Backes said. We had it in the third, but needed it right from the get go.Boston will host the Toronto Maple Leafs in the first round beginning Thursday night. The Leafs were 3-1 against the Bruins in the regular season.Florida starter James Reimer left in the third with an injury, and Luongo came in and stopped eight shots over the last 8:07. The pair combined to make 41 saves.Henrik Borgstrom [url=http://www.officialhockeypanthersshop.com/authentic-adidas-hats]Florida Panthers Hats Authentic[/url] , Frank Vatrano, Maxim Mamin and Evgenii Dadonov scored for Florida.Backes and David Pastrnak had a goal each for Boston, with Pastrnak cutting it to 3-2 shortly before Reimer was hurt. Tuukka Rask made 22 saves.We didnt deserve to win and thats the reality, Rask said. I think its mental, just not being sharp enough at the drop of the puck.After beating the Bruins for the second time in three games, Florida is headed home despite an impressive 25-8-2 run to end the season, including winning their last five.Its disappointing. We were really hoping that wed get a little help from some other teams and maybe get in [url=http://www.officialhockeypanthersshop.com/authentic-adidas-customized]Custom Florida Panthers Jerseys[/url] , Panthers forward Vincent Trocheck said. I think theres a lot of teams that didnt want to play us if we did make it in.Trailing 3-1 heading into the third, Boston made a furious surge, outshooting Florida 26-6 but only scoring once.Pastrnak scored a power-play goal at 9:54 of the third. Pastrnak led the Bruins with 35 goals and had a career-high 80 points.It has been a tough schedule for us but thats not an excuse, Pastrnak said. The last few weeks have not been our best.Dadonov put the game away when he scored an insurance goal with 1:49 remaining.Would have been easy for them to come and in and shut it down but its a competitive league, Bruins forward Brad Marchand said.Boston had been unbeaten in regulation over its last 11 home games and had beaten Florida in 12 of 13 overall.Boston lost in the first round last year to Ottawa in six games after failing to make the playoffs the two previous seasons.NOTES: Marchand failed to score in the Bruins final six games, and David Krejci has one goal in 16 games. Borgstrom scored his first career goal. Florida D Keith Yandle tied his career high with his 48th assist.
