The St Louis Blues come into tonight’s game averaging 3.76 goals per game at home, which is 4th most in the league. St. Louis’ home power play is very effective as they rank 6th at 27.7%. The Blues have seen 65 power plays on home ice, which is 7th most. The Blues have scored 84 five on five goals which is 6th most in the NHL. St. Louis is also getting some reinforcements tonight as Tarasenko, Perron, Schenn and Parayko are all making their return to the lineup, who all should provide some offensive jump. As far as the goaltending matchup goes, Jusse Saros is Nashville’s projected starter. He is having a fine season with a 2.35 goals against average and .926 save percentage. In 8 career starts vs. St. Louis however, he has a 2.89 GAA and .897 save percentage. Ville Husso is confirmed for the Blues.

His numbers show he is having a fine season sporting a 2.13 goals against average and .935 save percentage. He gave up 1 goal or less against Seattle, Washington, San Jose and LA. He has issues against better offensive teams as he gave up 3 or more goals to teams like Florida (twice), Tampa Bay, Columbus and an offensively strapped Detroit team. I think we see plenty of goals tonight and would not be surprised to see a 4-3 final either way.
