It all started with a tweet.
It was a simple welcome to the Devils guests, but also a warning. "Don't mess with our bagels."
After "St. Louis style" bagels went viral earlier this year [bagels sliced like bread instead of... well, bagels...], the Devils Official Twitter account wanted to make sure there'd be no bagel funny business on this Blues road trip.
The Blues responded.
But anyone who knows New Jersey bagels knows they are much greater than those from St. Louis. Therefore, new terms were discussed.
And agreed to.
With time ticking down and a 3-1 lead midway through the third, the Devils could almost taste sweet victory.
The Blues made things interesting late by cutting the Devils lead to 3-2, but an empty-netter from Joey Anderson in the trailing moments sealed a 4-2 victory and delicious, saucy, St. Louis BBQ.
