The Blues get set for life in the post-Kevin Shattenkirk era and will host the Oilers just a night after dealing the top-four blue-liner to the Capitals. With the Predators surging, St. Louis is barely hanging on to the final playoff spot in the Central Division and will be looking to avoid a fourth straight loss tonight.
– Shark BITES
- The Oilers are 2-10 SU in their last 12 games on the road against the Blues.
- The Blues are 14-3 SU in their last 17 games after consecutive losses.
- Cam Talbot is 16-8-5 on the road this season with a .923 save percentage.
Since Mike Yeo earned an early promotion, his team’s performance has gone in peaks and valleys. Prior to their current three-game skid, the Blues had peeled off six straight wins and they were starting to gain ground on the Blackhawks. Another loss tonight would give the Notes their longest losing streak of the 2016-17 season and will open the door for teams below them in the Western Conference.
Edmonton’s stretch of travel since the end of January has been brutal. The Oilers have played 11 of their last 15 games on the road but they’ve managed to come away with a record of 8-7-0 in that span. After their game in St. Lou tonight, they’ll head back to Edmonton for an eight-game homestand so you may want to fade them on Tuesday but look into the Oil-kids a little closer in their coming games.
