Montreal Canadiens vs St. Louis Blues Preview
St. Louis has lost six of eight following a 4-1 defeat to the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday, the fourth time the Blues have given up four goals during the stretch.
St. Louis’ lengthy injury list includes starting goaltender Jake Allen, who might remain out until the All-Star break because of an ailing knee. Alexander Steen could be the next to join after getting hit in the face by teammate Kevin Shattenkirk’s stick Thursday.
Jay Bouwmeester, Carl Gunnarsson, Steve Ott, Magnus Paajarvi and Jaden Schwartz are also among the missing.
Max Pacioretty scored the opening goal in the latest win over the Blues, giving him three in his past three match-ups. Alex Galchenyuk had two goals and an assist in the last visit to St. Louis, a 5-2 victory Feb. 24, while Brendan Gallagher also scored twice.
NHL Starting Goalies Tonight
- Montreal Canadiens -> Mike Condon
Despite the fact that Condon is on a two-game losing streak, the Canadiens will turn the cage over to him Saturday as he has only allowed a combined four goals in those losses
- St. Louis Blues -> Brian Elliott
Brian Elliott will be the starting goalie for the Blues when they face off against the Canadiens Saturday night. Despite being yanked in his last start after allowing three goals on 24 shots in the Blues’ loss to the Hurricanes Thursday night. Elliott should continue to get the majority of the starts while Jake Allen recovers from injury as current backup Jordan Binnington is very inexperienced.
