St. Louis vs Vancouver by Sors
The Canucks will travel to St. Louis after two defeats at home against Colorado (1-4) and Dallas (3-4 OT), but Vancouver will seek a fourth straight win away from home after those against San Jose (3-2), Los Angeles (4-1) and Arizona Coyotes (3-1).
The guests are sixth in the Western Conference, but their advantage over the ninth team in the standings is only three points (Los Angeles Kings), so each game until the end of the regular season is very important for Vancouver.
Brian Elliott, who will start for St. Louis, is 1-2-0 with a 1.58 GAA in his last four starts versus the Canucks.Vancouver will count on Eddie Lack, who is 4-0-0 with a 1.92 GAA against St. Louis so far in his career.
Vancouver is in a slightly better shape in this moment and the guests will enter into that game confident from their five consecutive wins over this opponent, two of them this season (4-1 @ St. Louis and 6-5 SO @ Vancouver).
The Blues will be without key player like Alexander Steen (l. wing / 73 – 24+38) today, who is out with a lower-body injury.
No new problems with injuries in Vancouver, besides the already known of Zack Kassian (r. wing / 42 – 10+6) and Brad Richardson (c / 45 – 8+13).
