The St. Louis Blues were a pretty dominant team last season, and if not for Nazem Kadri injuring Jordan Binnington in the playoffs, we very well could have seen a St. Louis Blues Stanley Cup victory.

This offseason they committed long term to some of their young players like Robert Thomas and Jordan Kyrou who really broke out last season, and were hoping to have another year like last year, but so far things have not been going well for the Blues and they currently sit 12th in the Western Conference.

From lack of scoring, to poor play to struggles with their goalie Jordan Binnington, nothing has been going right for the Blues this year and last night was no different.

To start the game, the Blues were called for a very rare penalty that im sure most of us can admit we've never seen before, and personally I didn't even know this was a rule.


The St. Louis Blues were given an "ineligible player" penalty to start the game tonight, as they started F Brandon Saad when they were supposed to start F Brayden Schenn.

The Oilers capitalized, making it 1-0 63 seconds in on a goal from Zach Hyman.


Every team is required to give their starting lineup for the game, and when the Blues submitted it, they had Brayden Schenn starting. When the puck dropped they sent out Brandon Saad instead. The referee caught this and issued a penalty which helped the Oilers begin the game with a 1-0 lead early.
