The St. Louis Blues are coming off two consecutive victories over the Arizona Coyotes, a 4-1 win at Scottrade Center on Monday and a 3-1 win in Phoenix on Wednesday, as the guests will try to take twelfth victory in fifteen games in March and fifth consecutive on the road following those against San Jose (4-1), Colorado (4-2) and Arizona (3-0 and 3-1).The Blues are sixth in the Western Conference (third place in the Central Division), but still with chances for the fourth spot in the West, given the fact that St. Louis is five points behind Edmonton (4th place) and six points behind Anaheim (3rd place), but these two teams will play each other on Saturday and in addition to that, the Blues have one game in hand.
Calvin Pickard (13-28-2 with a 2.94 GAA and .906 SV%), who will start for Colorado, is definitely far from his best shape in this moment, as the 24-year-old goalie has gone 3-9-0 with a 3.08 GAA and .900 SV% in twelve starts this month.Pickard gave up four goals on 34 shots in his last start, a 3-5 home loss to Washington on Wednesday.
Jake Allen (30-19-4 with a 2.42 GAA and .914 SV%) will start between the pipes against the Avalanche.Allen allowed one goal on 22 shots in Monday’s 4-1 win against the Coyotes and is 8-1-1 with a 1.39 GAA and .951 SV% in ten starts in March.In addition to that, the 26-year-old goalie went 3-0-0 with a 1.00 GAA and .962 SV% in his previous three starts against Colorado this season.
The Colorado Avalanche are still without Semyon Varlamov (goalie / 6-17-0 with a 3.38 GAA and .898 SV%) and Nikita Zadorov (defenseman / 0+10), while the Blues continue without Dmitrij Jaskin (right wing / 1+9), Jori Lehtera (center / 6+13), Robby Fabbri (center / 11+18) and Paul Stastny (center / 18+22).
I think that the St. Louis Blues will manage to win that game, most probably in regulation time.
