St. Louis Blues
Where They’re At:
The St. Louis Blues are currently sitting in 7th place with 50 points. They have a record of 24-16-2 on the season. They’re a point behind Minnesota for 6th and three points behind San Jose for 5th. They have a one point lead over Columbus in 8th and a three point lead over the 9th place Detroit Red Wings. The Blues have five games left on their schedule.
The St. Louis Blues are 8-2 this month. The only losses the Blues have came to Columbus and Chicago. St. Louis has only scored 20 goals in the last 10 games. It’s been enough to win, but that’s not a lot. The defense and the goaltending is keeping St. Louis alive. They’ve had a rough schedule, playing a lot of games in short amount of time.
The Blues only have one game on the road the rest of the season. They play Dallas Friday night, and then go to Colorado for a game on Sunday. They return home to play Colorado again, Calgary, and then they close the season with a game against Chicago. The remaining schedule proves to be a busy one, and one that offers a few games that could mean a lot. Calgary and Colorado are only playing for pride but they won’t lay down, and the Blues are coming off of a game and play again tomorrow before playing every other day the rest of the way.
St. Louis is tough, and they’re very good defensively. They’re playing well have won their last two games. They’ve beat some good teams this month and are rolling into the playoffs. There’s no reason St. Louis shouldn’t make the playoffs. They have a 3 point pad from 9th place and have one of the easier schedules when it comes to opponents.
