Blues Are Dangerous Following A Loss

With the series all knotted up at two games apiece the St. Louis Blues and Dallas Stars head back to American Airlines Center. The Blues are coming off a loss, which is a spot they have relished through the end of the regular season and the playoffs with St. Louis going 6-1 in their past seven following the L.

Shark Bites
  • Despite skating for a fifth-straight day, Tyler Seguin is not expected to play for the Stars.
  • The Stars are 2-5 SU in their past five games hosting the Blues.
  • The UNDER is 4-2 in the Stars past six home games

If there is one thing we have come to expect from these two teams, it’s that an overtime matchup in Dallas would be par for the course Saturday. Between the regular season and the playoffs the Blues and Stars have met at American Airlines Arena four times, with three of those games being decided in extra time.

After playing with a goalie-by-committee in their first round series, it appears Kari Lehtonen will get a second straight for the Stars. Despite some rough outings against the Blues, including a terrible three goals on five shot performance, Lehtonen is coming off a game in which he saved 24 of 26 shots.
