Blues Want Edmundson to Put Game 4 Turnover in the Past


Jeremy Rutherford; Tom Timmermann, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


DALLAS * Blues defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk said he knows the feeling that comes when you put the puck right on the tape of an opposing player, like his defensive partner Joel Edmundson did in Game 4.

"I've done it plenty of times," Shattenkirk said Friday. "It's helpless. That's all you can really feel. You're helpless out there."

The Stars turned that into a goal that tied the score at 1-1, and it was quickly followed by a power-play goal that put them up 2-1 on their way to an eventual 3-2 win in overtime to even the series at two games each. The message Edmundson's teammates had for him was: welcome to the club. Everyone's done it, though Edmundson's mistake, coming in a playoff game, was a bit more noticeable.

"It happens, it was a mistake, it was a turnover," Shattenkirk said. "We're there for him. I told him he's been playing great up until that point. You can't look at one play over the past four games and focus on that. He's made countless more good plays before that that have been the staple of his game."

"We all make mistakes," said center Paul Stastny. "It's part of the game. I think he's been playing great for us. We told him don't even worry about it. Everyone's going to have that play in their career at some time. You try to make a play and you don't get the puck up. Nine out of 10 times he gets the puck past that guy and (we have) a two-on-one, so I think he was trying to make an offensive play. It was just unfortunate. We told him to keep playing the same way, keep your head up and kind of stay with that confidence because he's been playing great for us and one little play's not going to change that."

"He's doing what our system asks for," Shattenkirk said. "We want to get pucks up quickly, especially when, in the second period, we can catch them on that change and get back on offense."

"I was surprised," said Dallas' Radek Faksa, who got the puck and scored the goal. "He just passed it to me and it was a hard pass. …
