No matter how many years pass, few of us old enough to understand the scope of what happened on September 11, 2001 will ever forget those video images of planes flying through skyscrapers, which then crumbled into dust. Perhaps out of psychological necessity, we have distanced ourselves from the visceral emotions of that day.
Robby Fabbri scored the go-ahead goal midway through the third period as the Blues edged the Oilers 3-1 in the season opener at Scottrade Center. Vladimir Tarasenko tallied the tying goal in the second, while Troy Brouwer added an insurance goal in the final minute. Brian Elliott made 23 saves in the win. The Blues embark on a six-game road trip starting tomorrow in Minnesota.
