"That was the difference in the game," said Ortmeyer of the Sharks scoring 16
seconds apart. "They were all over us as far as the shots and [Nabokov] kept
us in the game. To come out and get a couple quick ones really took the
momentum away from them."
Jay McClement had the lone goal for St. Louis, which has lost seven of eight.
Chris Mason was tested with 16 shots and allowed two by him.
"I think it's good for this team...regroup a little bit, get some rest and get
focused for Thursday," said Blues forward Andy McDonald referring to St. Louis
having the next four days off. "There is a lot of hockey left to play and the
one positive is we're not playing where we're capable of."
