With a goal early in the first period in Game 1 against the Colorado Avalanche, Blues captain Ryan O'Reilly matched a franchise playoff record that hasn't been touched since 1982.
O'Reilly scored for the fifth-straight playoff game, matching a mark previously set by Joe Mullen (1982) and Phil Roberto (1972) as the longest consecutive-game goal streak in Blues playoff history.
Only two players in the NHL have posted longer runs in the last 20 years: Brayden Point (nine games in 2021 with Tampa Bay) and Martin Havlat (six games in 2006 with the Ottawa Senators).
Partially through seven playoff contests, O'Reilly has six goals and three assists in the postseason.
