St. Louis hasn’t been up to their best game lately, falling in two straight games that come immediately after a six-game win streak. They allowed Edmonton six goals on Wednesday night, which brought even more notice to their inconsistent goaltending lately. However, Vancouver just lost their third in a row, falling 2-0 to the Oilers on Friday. While they had a nice streak at home going before that, Vancouver is struggling to stay relevant for a playoff spot at this point, and could be more of a spoiler with a win, than a contender for something bigger.
The Blues (41-22-5) are just two points behind Dallas in the Central Division, but just one point ahead of Chicago. Getting points on the board hasn’t been a problem for the Blues in this winning season, and defensively they’re ranked 10th in the league in goals allowed, but lately that ranking hasn’t seemed to hold up, and they are struggling on defense to put teams away, especially on the power play. Look for Jake Allen in the net, who let Edmonton slip six points past him earlier in the week.
The Canucks (27-31-9) are twelve points behind Colorado for the second Wild Card spot in the Western Conference. They are just 4-11 in their last 15 at home, but their road game hasn’t been much better, falling to Edmonton on Friday night – a team that has plagued both of tonight’s contenders. It wasn’t for a lack of effort on the Canucks’ part, as they actually out-shot the Oilers 40-25, but they couldn’t make a connection, and were shutout by Edmonton. With the Central Division within St. Louis’ grasp, they’ll be trying to rack up as many points as possible against this struggling Vancouver team, and it could be an easy feat against the Canucks’ lagging defense, and inability to connect between the posts.
