Thursday evening pucks and the Central Division will square off with the Atlantic Division as the St Louis Blues grapple with the Ottawa Senators at Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, Ontario. The Blues enter this game off a 3-1 home loss to Arizona, while the Senators are off a 3-2 loss at Philadelphia.

Blues Take Bad Home Loss To The Coyotes

The Arizona Coyotes have been a hot team of late and they kept it going with a rather stunning 3-1 road win over the St Louis Blues. The Blues had been hot themselves, but they have now lost four of their last six games and will look to get back on track against the worst team in the league. St Louis is currently in 5th place in the Western Conference playoff standings, but they have just a five-point lead over Minnesota, who is in the 9th spot. The Blues still have plenty of work to do. Scoring their lone goal against the Coyotes was Jaden Schwartz, which was his 7th goal of the year. The Blues have gone 19-16 on the road and
Absorbing the loss to the Coyotes was Jordan Binnington, who allowed two goals on 29 shot attempts to fall to 16-5 with a 1.81 GAA on the year, while out on the road he has gone 9-3 with a 1.67 GAA. He is 1-0 with a 2.00 GAA against the Sens ion his career. We may see Jake Allen and he has gone 18-22 with a 2.90 GAA on the year, including 10-11 with a 2.28 GAA on the road. In his career, he has gone 2-1 with a 1.92 GAA against the Senators.  St Louis enters this game ranked 13th in the league in power play conversions at 20.4% and 14th in penalty kill at 80.8%.

Sens Keep On Losing

The miserable season for the rebuilding Ottawa senators continues as they come in off a 3-2 road loss to the Flyers. The Sens have now lost their last four games in a row and 11 of their last 12. Horrible. They knew it was going to be a long year, but they also felt they would be a bit better than they are at the moment. Ottawa is currently a whopping 58 points out o0f first in the Atlantic Division and 29 points out of the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference. Scoring in the loss to the Flyers was Chris Tierney, which was his 8th of the year and Filip Chlapik, which was his 1st of the year.
Taking the loss to the Flyers was Craig Anderson, who allowed three goals on 36 shot attempts to fall to 14-28 with a 3.52 GAA on the year, while here at home he has gone 11-12 with a 2.99 GAA. In his career, he has gone 4-5 with a 3.22 GAA against the Blues. Ottawa has gone 14-20 here at home for the year and they have averaged 3.03 gpg and have allowed 3.09 gpg in those games. The Senators check in ranked 14th in power play conversions at 20.0% and 22nd in penalty kill at 79.4%.
