A controversial ending to Game 3 had everyone frustrated on Wednesday night, but Blues Head Coach Craig Berube said Thursday that it was time to move on.

"We've got to move on from it, we've moved on already," Berube said. "That game's over."

Berube said things happen in games, that's the way it goes. He's more focused on making sure the Blues are ready for an important Game 4 on Friday (7 p.m., NBCSN, Y98 FM).

"It's a test, that's how you look at it. It's a tough play, a tough call, but it's just a test," he saidl "Again, we've been tested over and over throughout the season and in the playoffs and I think we're pretty good at bouncing back. That's the way I look at it… Again, we've got to move past that game, I think our team has moved past it. Focus on Game 4, it's a huge game, we're at home. Look to tie the series up and go back to San Jose."


DUNN INJURED

Blues defenseman Vince Dunn, who ranks third amongst Blues defensemen in scoring with seven points in the playoffs (two goals, five assists), left Wednesday's game with an upper-body injury in the first period and did not return.

Dunn is day-to-day and won't play in Game 4, so Carl Gunnarsson is ready to step in after sustaining an injury in Game 7 in the last series vs. Dallas.

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING

Jay Bouwmeester
On referees and moving on from Game 3
"It's a hard job. They're the best at what they do. You can argue for whatever happened, but the bottom line is, we let the game get to overtime and anything can happen. I think for us, it's done. There's no sense in looking behind you. I think what we learned from last night is if we play the way we can - and the second period is a perfect example - we're fine in this series. That's our focus now. We're not too worried about (Game 3)."

Brayden Schenn
On how Game 3 finished out
"We had chances to close the game out, we didn't. The play happened in overtime and we move on, move forward and look to Game 4."
