Today’s game takes place from the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota.  

The Blues have lost two straight and three of their last four games entering tonight’s contest. That includes a 4-1 loss to the Kings at home last night. St. Louis is 17-8-1 overall and 8-3-1 on the road. The Blues are putting up 3.27 goals per game this season while allowing 2.69 goals per contest.

St. Louis has won six of its last seven meetings with the Wild, including a 6-3 win at St. Louis back on Nov. 25. The Blues have also won their last four trips to Minnesota. St. Louis is also 23-6 in their last 29 games when playing on no rest. Minnesota is 4-9 in their last 13 Saturday games as well. I like the Blues to keep rolling along in this series tonight.
