Despite being among the class of the league to this point, the Blues are in damage control mode now, with injuries to two of their best players in forward Jaden Schwartz and D-man Alex Pietrangelo. We know that Schwartz is out for at least six weeks with an ankle injury, while the extent of Pietrangelo’s issue is still to be determined, but he should be back sooner than Schwartz.
St. Louis Blues
The Blues are coming off a 3-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks and it’ll be a struggle for the road team to emerge victorious on Sunday night in the second night of a back-to-back with Winnipeg. If it’s going to happen, Russian sniper Vladimir Tarasenko must have a good game, to replace some of Schwartz’s production up front.
After a lacklustre game versus the Ducks, St. Lou also needs better goaltending from starter Jake Allen. He’s capable, so he has to step up.
The Manitoban squad has a duo of the premier scorers in the NHL, with Blake Wheeler and Mark Schiefele. Wheeler is leading the team in points with 38, but Schiefele is right behind him with 35. There’s other talent on the roster too, like young dynamos Patrik Laine and Nicholai Ehlers.
Winnipeg goalie Connor Hellebuyck has been great between the pipes, although he laid an egg in Thursday’s 5-1 loss to Chicago. We might see some Steve Mason over the weekend.
Free St. Louis Blues vs. Winnipeg Jets NHL Prediction:
It’s always tricky to predict how teams respond on the second leg of a back-to-back, and it’s possible Pietrangelo is back for the Sunday tilt in the ‘Peg. Still, with the injuries to key players of late, I like the home team Jets to grab a win on Sunday night in the MTS Centre.
