The Blues’ skid can be simply explained by the fact that they aren’t scoring adequately and they’re not defending well either. At some point, all the losing has to stop and that could come for them this Monday night versus Winnipeg. If anything, the Blues don’t seem to have the case of the Mondays, as they have won five of their last seven games that fell on the first day of the workweek. Like the Blues, Winnipeg is also struggling mightily of late, so at the very least, St.
Jordan Binnington could get the call to start anew in front of the net for the Blues. The 29-year-old netminder is 18-17-3 this season to go with a 3. 28 GA/G and. 891 SV%. He is 3-3-1 with a. 905 SV% in his career so far against the Jets. Why The Jets Could Cover The SpreadAs mentioned earlier, the Jets aren’t doing particularly well recently either. Winnipeg enters Monday’s clash against the Blues having lost all its last three games. The last time they were on the ice, the Jets got torched by the Philadelphia Flyers at home on Saturday, 4-0. During their current losing skid, the Jets have been outscored, 9-3.
Against the Flyers, Winnipeg couldn’t buy a score despite getting off more shots on goal than Philly, 40-33. The Jets went 0 of 3 on the power play as well. But their offense could be waking up this Monday. Winnipeg has won eight of its last nine games after a loss of at least three goals. Plus, St. Louis’ leaky defense presents the perfect opportunity for the Jets to finally start scoring goals again.
How To Watch The Winnipeg Jets Live - Grounded Reason
Brayden Schenn and Ivan Barbashev showed some signs of life lately for the Blues’ offense, as each scored a goal in the loss to the reigning Stanley Cup champions. Schenn has three goals in the last five games, while Barbashev also has found the back of the net three times in that same stretch. Star center Robert Thomas, who is second on the team with 43 points, however, might not be available to play later tonight due to a lower-body injury that forced him to miss the Colorado game as well.
Louis will be facing a cold team, just like itself. That being said, the Blues does seem to like playing in Winnipeg. Although the Blues lost there, 4-0, last October, St. Louis is 6-3 in its last nine visits to Winnipeg. Moreover, dating back to 2013, the Blues are 12-8 in their last 20 games as the road team versus the Jets.
For one, the Blues are seventh-worst in the NHL so far this season with 3. 6 goals allowed per contest. The Blues are also poor in killing penalties, snuffing just 75 percent of opposing power-play attacks, good for only 23rd in the league. Winnipeg isn’t exactly an elite-scoring team, but they’re a much more productive team overall in that area than the Blues. The Jets are 13th in the NHL with 3. 18 goals per game. While the Blues only has one player with at least 20 goals this season, the Jets have three. Mark Scheifele leads Winnipeg with 29 goals to go with 16 assists, while Kyle Connor and Pierre-Luc Dubois have 24 and 22 goals, respectively, while combining for 63 assists.
