St. Louis jumped into a 24 lead early in the second period when Gary Sabourin picked up a loose puck on the right wing and blasted a 25-foot shot through Cheevers's legs. Minutes later, Esposito tipped, in a shot from the corner by right winger Ken Hodge, but referee Bruce Hood disallowed the goal because it was knocked in by a high stick. Esposito got the tying goal about 10 minutes later after he won a faceoff in ffle Blues' zone He dumped the puck to Hocige and then took a return pass about 25 feet in front of Hal to beat the veteran with a quick wrist shot.
