Game One Recap, via the Associated Press:

Pat Maroon set up the winning goal for the St. Louis Blues, and his thoughts immediately turned to his late grandfather.

Tyler Bozak scored with 2:05 left in the third period off Maroon’s assist to give the Blues a 2-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday night in Game 1 of their Western Conference opening-round playoff series.

“He was watching above,” Maroon said of his grandfather, who died Tuesday at 95 years old. “So, obviously, that was for him.”

Maroon sent a backhand pass from behind the net out to Bozak in the slot, and Bozak’s quick shot went by Winnipeg’s Connor Hellebuyck for the go-ahead goal.

“It’s been emotional, tough days for me,” said Maroon, who posted a tribute to his grandfather on Twitter. “But being with the guys and having them by my side has been really good.”

David Perron also scored for St. Louis early in the third, and Jordan Binnington made 24 saves.

“I had a lot of chances tonight, so I knew the puck was kind of following me around a bit,” Bozak said. “It’s always fun when that happens, so after the few I missed it was definitely nice to get one in there.”
Patrik Laine scored late in the first period and Hellebuyck stopped 24 shots for the Jets, who host Game 2 on Friday.

“Real tight, and that’s what we expect,” Jets captain Blake Wheeler said of the game. “We expect it’s going to go seven, and seven real close games. It didn’t go our way tonight.”

The goalies played a big role in keeping the game tight, even though Binnington took an early tumble to the ice.

Winnipeg’s Mark Scheifele was sent to the penalty box 34 seconds into the first period for interference. As he was skating to the back of the St. Louis net, he banged into Binnington, who was behind the net and returning to his crease. Blues forward Brayden Schenn shoved Scheifele hard in retaliation, but only drew boos from fans and not a penalty.

“It’s playoff hockey,” Binnington said. “I can take a hit.”

Laine sent a blast from the high slot past Binnington at 13:38. The Finnish forward only had one goal in his last 19 games of the regular season.

“We’ve had a couple of those where they score the winning goal in the last two minutes,” Laine said. “So it’s always tough, but that’s how it goes sometimes. We still had two minutes to tie the game, but couldn’t do it. We’ve got to focus on the next game.”
