David Perron: Most Worst PIMs | David Perron took 44 PIMs in 48 games. All minor penalties. I am a David Perron fan and often a David Perron apologist, but COME ON PERRY. This award could be called “Most Likely to Deplete Momentum” or “Most Likely to Incite Eye-rolls” or “Best At Keeping The Penalty Box Door Opener Company”. But we still appreciate you and your talent, so we give you this award for 2013.
One year ago today, David Perron returned to the ice after missing over a year of hockey with a concussion. He scored a beautiful goal in his return and went on to have a career season in only 57 games. #Perronmas
Top Seven Blues Games of the 2011-2012 NHL Season | Number 5: Colorado @ St. Louis
February 11th, 2012
3 - 2 (OT)
Games against the Avalanche are always fun to watch, and this game was no exception. After going down by a goal when Shane O’Brien scored in the first period, the Blues were able to tie the game and then take the lead thanks to two goals by David Perron. The lead didn’t last long, however, when Erik Johnson got a goal to even the score at 2 with a minute to play in the first. Despite the four-goal opening twenty minutes, there were no more goals scored throughout the final two periods of play. Wanting to avoid a shootout against a shootout-dominant Avs team, the Blues were able to secure two points and a W with a goal in OT. Patrik Berglund shot the puck, which apparently deflected off of Carlo Colaiacovo’s elbow and into the net.

3 - 1
This wasn’t the flashiest game of the season, but it was significant for a number of reasons. This game was Jaden Schwartz’s first in the NHL, and it also happened to be the game in which he scored his first NHL goal. The Blues’ other tallies came from David Perron and Patrik Berglund, who scored short-handed. After achieving a win in this game, the Blues became the first team in the NHL to clinch a playoff berth. Having missed the playoffs the previous two seasons, this was something for Blues fans to celebrate.
