As good as the Blues have played during the postseason, they have been just lukewarm on home ice. Entering Monday’s Game 6 showdown, the Blues have gone just 3-3 SU in six home games while posting a 4-2 SU record away from the Scottrade Center.

Brian Elliott was his usual, dominant self in the postseason and was in prime form Saturday.

Elliott has allowed just 10 goals through five games and brings a .937 save percentage into Monday’s contest.

Jamie Benn has been somewhat quiet (by his high standards) in the series, notching just one goal and three assists through five games. But he’s not the only star that has struggled to find the back of the net. Patrick Sharp has also recorded just one goal while Jason Spezza has been held goalless.
