It's not ideal, yet they'll take it. David Perron scored at 1:28 of overtime to give St. Louis a 5-4 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday night. The Blues blew a two-goal lead in the third-period and needed Ryan O'Reilly's late goal to send it to overtime. "We've really been focused on getting off to good starts, but we need to be more consistent when teams make adjustments against us," O'Reilly said. "We just haven't been ready in the same way and we're getting ourselves into trouble.

The St. Louis Blues have decided to go a different route to address their injury woes, signing a pair of veteran forwards to professional tryout contracts in the hopes they’ll show they can still play in the NHL.

Brouwer skated with the Florida Panthers in training camp this season after playing 75 games with the team last season but wasn’t able to secure a deal.

McGinn meanwhile comes to the Blues after a spending a short amount of time with the Charlotte Checkers of the AHL just to prove he was healthy enough to compete. His goal was always getting back to the NHL, and he’ll try to do just that in St. Louis. The 31-year-old has played just 35 professional games since the start of the 2018-19 season but was once a reliable bottom-six forward who provided physicality and a nice touch around the net.
