The Central Division leading St Louis Blues (32-15-9, 73 points) are on the road Thursday night with a visit to the Vegas Golden Knights (28-22-8, 64 points). The St. Louis Blues most recent game against the Anaheim Ducks was postponed when Jay Bouwmeester was taken to a local hospital after suffering a cardiac episode while on the bench. The Blues’ defenseman was conscious and alert on the way to the hospital.
Vegas has suffered two straight defeats following a 4-0 shutout loss to the Minnesota Wild in their most recent outing. With those losses the Golden Knights have fallen back into a three-way tie for third place in the Pacific division two points behind second-place Edmonton and three points behind first-place Vancouver.
 

St Louis leads the Central by just one point

Following their postponed game on Tuesday the St. Louis Blues saw their lead in the Central Division cut to just one point over the Colorado Avalanche. St Louis has lost two straight and four of the last five with a victory over Carolina the only win thrown in the mix. Not only are the Avalanche breathing down the Blues back, but Dallas is just four points off the pace set by the Blues.
