It was a thrilling matchup between the St. Louis Blues and the Edmonton Oilers at Rogers Place last night, as the two teams faced off in a highly competitive game.

The Blues received a minor penalty at the start of the first period after starting the wrong lineup. According to the rules of the National Hockey League (NHL), each team must submit their starting lineup prior to the game, and the Blues started a different line-up to the game without notifying the officials.

The bench minor was served by Josh Leivo, who later also had to serve a too many men penalty, a box filled night for Leivo.

This penalty is extremely rare, one that 99% of hockey fans probably haven’t seen called before.

The Oilers took advantage of the power play and managed to score, with Zach Hyman netting his 14th goal of the year. Despite a tough start to the game, the Blues fought hard and managed to tie the game at 1-1 before the end of the first period.

The rest of the game was tightly contested, with both teams trading goals back and forth as the Oilers went up 3-1 but the Blues made a late comeback. In the end, the game was tied 3-3 after regulation time and OT, forcing the teams to play a shootout to determine the winner.

In the shootout, Jordan Kyrou stepped up for the Blues and scored the game-winning goal, giving the Blues a 4-3 victory. It was a hard-fought win for the Blues, who overcame a difficult start to come out on top against a tough Oilers team.
