St. Louis used their experience in Game 5 to go into Dallas and handle the Stars with a 4-1 win.
Now, they come home with a chance to clinch a spot in the Western Conference Finals with a win here.
St. Louis Blues
The Blues will look for their first Western Conference Finals berth in 15 years with a win here on Monday at home.
After failing to take complete control of the series in Game 4, the Blues went on the road and got out to an early lead against the Stars that Dallas couldn’t recover from.
It’s been G Brian Elliot who has been the biggest key for this team. Elliot made 27 saves on Saturday, which also included one from point blank range that not many, if any, goalies in the NHL could stop.
Elliot and the Blues now return home where they have played extremely well at this season. The Blues have conceded only 2.32 goals per game on average and are 27-14-5-1 on the season.
C Paul Stastny is currently on a 3 point streak, where he has tallied 2 goals and 2 assists.
The Stars know this series is far from over.
They took the regular season series from the Blues and have were the better team throughout the regular season, winning the division. They’ve had to go on and win some tough road games, so they know they can handle the pressure.
Dallas is 25-14-5-2 on the season away from home, which gives them good hope coming into this one.
It’s extremely important for them here not to allow anything early to St. Louis. Even if the Stars don’t strike themselves, the longer this game stays tied, the more pressure that gets put on the Blues. Not allowing that lead and keeping the crowd out of it or on edge is a must here for the Stars if they hope to steal one and force a Game 7 in this series.
