Best-of-seven series tied, 2-2

The St. Louis Blues got another power-play goal from Vladimir Tarasenko in Tuesday's Game 4, but a goal from Winnipeg's Kyle Connor 6:02 into the first overtime led to a 2-1 win for the Jets in Game 4.

"It's frustrating," Blues captain Alex Pietrangelo said after the game. "We knew it was going to be a hard series, right? We took two in their building so regroup and hopefully steal another one in there."

"It's obviously tough, for sure, but it's a tight series," Blues Head Coach Craig Berube said after Game 4. "Two good teams. Could have went either way."

The best-of-seven series is now tied at 2-2.

The good news is the road team has won all four games in this series so far, and since the Blues have won twice in Winnipeg, they know they can do it again.

"That's the mentality," Blues defenseman Robert Bortuzzo said. "We're comfortable on the road and we know what we can bring as a hockey team. We're confident at this point where we can go in and win a game."


Ryan O'Reilly
On getting more from Blues' top line
"We're a good line of good players and we'll figure it out. It gets back to one shift at a time and making an impact. If it's something defensively or offensively… we know how to play the game, we know what our success looks like. It's working for it."

Robert Bortuzzo
On whether either team has an edge in the series
"It's hard to say. Both teams have played good hockey, both teams have played hard and that leads you to where you're at with the series tied 2-2 and it being a best of three."

Brayden Schenn
On teams having success on the road
"Two good road teams, even in the regular season. Two tough buildings to play in… we feel comfortable and confident on the road going into Winnipeg, obviously it's a tough building to play in but we've had two wins there so far, so we're looking forward to Game 5."
