The Alexandria Blizzard dropped its first game of the NA3HL Showcase on Friday, falling to St. Louis 4-3 in Chicago.

St. Louis never trailed in this one as the Jr. Blues scored once in the first, twice in the second and once more in the third to snap a seven-game losing streak. Aaron Ryback, Danny Pelzer and Garrett Skinner all scored for Alexandria in the losing effort. Skinner's goal cut it to a one-goal game 8:10 into the third period, but Alexandria couldn't get the equalizer down the stretch.
