If you saw the Blues in their three-game Canadian road trip last week, it should be apparent it's a team that could use a few days of rest. While the entire city was occupied celebrating the Cardinals' improbable World Series win over the Texas Rangers on Friday, the hockey team fell to the Calgary Flames 3-1. Two nights later, they'd lose again in Edmonton 4-2, a loss that puts them below .500 (5-6). Thankfully, the Blues will be able to get some rest in before they welcome the Canucks to town on Friday. Let's take a look at the weekly schedule for the Blues:
November 4, vs. Vancouver
These teams matched up on October 26 with St. Louis winning 3-0 thanks to a wonderful game from goalie Brian Elliott. The Canucks have since defeated the mighty Washington Capitols (7-4 last Saturday) to even their record at 5-5-1.
November 5, @ Minnesota
The Wild have 11 points at 4-3-3, but the statistics show it's a team the Blues should be able to handle: Minnesota can't score, ranking 30th in goals per game (1.9). On the flip side, the Wild are currently ranked fifth in goals allowed (2.2).
