St. Louis Blues vs Pittsburgh Penguins
Saturday, November 30 – 20:00 EST – Enterprise Center
The St. Louis Blues return home following a successful three game road trip where they picked up five points out of a possible six. With that being said, the Blues should continue trending positively as they are one of the top home teams in the league. St. Louis holds a 7-3-3 record this season at the Enterprise Center. The only issue with this side is the lack of goals they have been producing especially at home. The Blues rank 27th in most goals scored by a home team. Of course, part of the reason is due to Tarasenko’s long term injury. However, St. Louis can depend on other offensive options such as the likes of Perron, Schenn, and O’Reilly. These three players have accumulated a total of 74 points this season. St. Louis will likely start Jordan Binnington in goal. The goaltender has been playing well this season as he holds a 12-4-4 record and a goals against average of 2.27.
On the other hand, the Pittsburgh Penguins are having some trouble on the road. They are winless in their last four away matches. The Penguins will need an exceptional performance to get anything out of the Blues tonight. However, the good news for Pittsburgh is that they are capable of scoring goals on the road. They currently rank 9th in most goals scored by an away team. The Penguins will rely on Guentzel and Malkin to get some points on the board against the Blues. The two players have accumulated a total of 48 points so far. Pittsburgh will start Matt Murray in goal. The goaltender is 9-4-4 this season with a goals against average of 2.72.
Overall, this should be an exciting match between two high caliber teams. The Penguins are not playing well on the road and for that reason, we like the Blues to come out on top in this one. Look for the home crowd to lift this Blues team and earn them another win to add to their tally.
