St. Louis Blues Preview
The Blues seem to be back on tracking winning three consecutive games. Vladimir Tarasenko has 21 goals on the year, which leads the team, 2nd in the league, while his 36 points are tied for 4th in the league.
Jake Allen will start while looking to continue his impressive season thus far. Allen is 15-9 with a 2.06 goals against average on the year, while on the road he’s 6-3 with a 2.33 goals against average. This will be the first time he faces the Flyers.
The Blues are 18th in scoring, putting up 2.5 goals per game, however they have converted only 20.8% of their power play chances, which is 7th in the league. On defense the Blues are 7th in goals allowed 2.4 goals per game. While sitting first in the penalty killing department (87.8%).
Philadelphia Flyers Preview
Last week I backed the Flyers, they forgot how to shoot the puck, forgot how to execute one timers on many occasions, eventually losing in a shootout. How about that bum Wayne Simmonds trash goal in the shootout? He lost control of the puck – as usual – and somehow it went into the back of the net.
Steve Mason is doing well this season and he’s NOT struggling. He’s 6-13 on the year with a 2.71 goals against average. Those stats don’t reflect his recent play, especially since the 6-13 record comes from lack of offense in front of him.
Philadelphia currently sit 29th in scoring, I don’t expect them to climb the scoring ladder any time soon, if ever. They are putting up just 2.1 goals per game, 26th in power play conversions (15.8%), while on defense they are 18th in goals allowed with 2.6 goals per game. As far as the penalty killing department, they rank 18th which is not too bad. This ranking reflects the true numbers for both Mason and Neuvirth.
St. Louis Blues – Jake Allen
Philadelphia Flyers – Steve Mason
