Blues winger Ryan Reaves performed a little dental self-surgery on the bench last night, pulling out a loosened tooth after getting mushed into the glass by Brent Seabrook. After he finished his shift, of course.

The 2-1 win‚ÄĒwithout the services of leading scorers Vladimir Tarasenko and Alexander Steen‚ÄĒwas a big one for St. Louis. It moved them a point ahead of Nashville for the Central Division lead, and three points clear of Chicago, with just three games remaining.
