Blues top Ducks 4-2 in key battle for playoff position

Blues top Ducks 4-2 in key battle for playoff position”

The moneyline between these two teams is Anaheim Ducks: -170, St. Louis Blues: +145 and 60% have picked the Anaheim Ducks to win the game.

Bortuzzo, a defenseman, scored his second goal in two games and third of the season.

John Gibson (29.6 saves per game) has been the top selection in goal for the Ducks. Rickard Rakell has been red hot, scoring 8 goals in his last 6 games. This follows last Saturday's win over the Los Angeles Kings, giving the Blues a two game winning streak and moving them to just one point out of a playoff spot. Getzlaf, in his last five games, has 2 goals and 10 assists.

Sporting a.907 save percentage and 25.3 saves per game, Jake Allen (20-26-2) has been the best option in goal for St. Louis this year.

Before the offensive outburst, the Blues registered 14 goals in 10 games while getting shut out three times. Against the Kings, 14 Blues players had points, led by Jaden Schwartz with a goal and two assists. The St. Louis power play ranks 29th in the National Hockey League. Unfortunately, Alex Pietrangelo and Colton Parayko still logged over 15 minutes of combined ice time in the 3rd period. He's found the back of the net 3 times in the last 5 games. Maybe not (since) the first 10, 15 games of the year. "We've got to make sure that we create offense on all four lines and we get a couple goals that way too".

Blues coach Mike Yeo said, "When you can score some goals, what you hope now is that some guys can build some confidence off of that and carry some momentum into our next one. We know the next one is going to be a real tough challenge".

The Ducks are fighting for their playoff lives, sitting in third place in the Pacific division, just 1 point ahead of the Los Angeles Kings who sit out of the playoffs though the Kings have a game in hand. Ryan Getzlaf was the scorer. Ryan Getzlaf took four shots and scored one goal in 21:33 minutes.

This is the final game between these two teams in the regular season. "And I think we're doing that right now". (The) goaltender made some saves when we needed him to; he kept us right in the game.

Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle commented, "Well, again that is the difference in the game".

Under is 4-0 in Blues last 4 vs. a team with a losing record and Blues are 0-4 in their last 4 when their opponent scores 2 goals or less in their previous game and Blues are 1-8 in their last 9 vs. And what did we do? It appears rookie Marcus Pettersson will sit out as Carlyle will go with both Francois Beauchemin and Kevin Bieksa against the more physical Blues. Barbashev, a forward who plays on the fourth line, scored on a rebound and added an assist. The trio produced five points against the Kings. "It's on us as players". Tarasenko's 27 goals and 58 points pace the team. The Ducks are 19-9-5 at home and are 6-3-1 in their last 10 though they have lost 2 games in a row. Tarasenko has points in six of the last 10 games.

Ville Husso was recalled from San Antonio (AHL) under emergency conditions as Carter Hutton continues to deal with a neck injury. St. Louis skaters have accounted for the league's 11th-most hits per game (22.4) while the Ducks have handed the sixth-most (24.2).

The Blues (37-27-5), finally return home after a lengthy road trip.
