Sometimes you need a little help from your friends.

Or the refs.

Referee Brian Pochmara gave a hand to St. Louis Blues forward Ivan Barbashev during Saturday’s game against the Ottawa Senators.

The Blues winger lost his skate blade after crashing into the end boards and was unable to get back to the bench.  Enter Pochmara, who gave Barbashev a little push in the right direction.



Linesman Ryan Galloway also pitched in, delivering the stray skate blade to the Blues’ bench at the next stoppage.
