O’Reilly scores only Blues goal in 4-1 exhibition loss to Red Wings
CALUMET, Mich. — Anthony Mantha and Michael Rasmussen each scored twice to help the Detroit Red Wings beat the Stanley Cup champion St. Louis Blues 4-1 on Thursday night in a Kraft Hockeyville preseason game.
Mantha opened the scoring in a power play with 4:32 left in the first period and added the winner 1:05 into the second period. Rasmussen scored both of his goals nearly two minutes apart later in the second.
Ryan O’Reilly tied it at 1 for St. Louis 43 seconds into the second period. Sammy Blais and David Perron each collected an assist on the goal for St. Louis.
Jordan Binnington had 16 saves on 20 shots.
Kraft Hockeyville is a yearly event in which the NHL and Kraft bring an exhibition game to a non-NHL city in Canada and the United States. Earlier, Florida played Montreal in Renous, New Brunswick. The cities that host the games also receive funding to improve and modernize rinks.
