St. Louis Blues
The Blues have opened the season on a 3 game winning streak and will now look to make it 4 straight for just the 2nd time in franchise history when they head into Vancouver on Tuesday.
Paul Stastny has collected at least one point in all 3 games for St. Louis, as he tallied a goal and an assist in the 3-2 win over New York on Saturday.
Going on the road here should be no problem for the Blues either. Over the past 4 seasons in October, St. Louis has gone 9-3-2 on the road.
The Blues have dominated on the defensive end, as they have allowed just 2 goals per game through the first two. It starts with their offense actually, that has been winning the possession battle and keeping the puck out of their own zone.
More good news for them, Left wing Jaden Schwartz continues to recover from hyperextended left elbow and is scheduled to return prior to his 4 week time table.
The Canucks have used the come from behind method in their first two games of the season.
Vancouver used a 3rd period comeback to take down Calgary 2-1 and then followed that up with a 4-3 win over Carolina on Sunday night that saw them erase a 3-0 deficit.
Brandon Sutter has been the biggest key to their success through the first two games, as he tallied a goal in the shootout against Calgary and also added the overtime winner against the Hurricanes on Sunday.
The Canucks depth is going to be their biggest strong suit this season. They have had at least 11 players tally a point thus far.
Goalie Ryan Miller will try to erase his bad stats against the Blues, as he has gone 2-6 and has allowed nearly 3 goals per game.
