The Blues added their fourth straight victory in a dominating performance over the San Jose Sharks on Sunday night. The Blues have won 4 straight games four different times this season, but each time have failed to get the 5th win. The Blues now travel to Columbus in search of that elusive win to take on the slumping blue Jackets, who have lost 8 of their last 11 games. The 4th place Blues have won 5 of 6 games and have won both match-ups against Columbus this season.
In the first game this season, the Blues won a 2-1 with a late power play goal by David Backes. In their other meeting, down 3-2 heading into the third period, the Blues outscored the Jackets 4-1 on their way to a high scoring 6-4 victory
David Perron continues to impress, as he has scored 6 goals in the past four games, and is leading a surging Blues power play. Alex Pietrangelo, another staple on the power play, had a 2 goal game against the Sharks on Sunday, and has registered 4 points in the past two games. The Blues have also been led by their stellar goaltending, having given up only 1.9 goals per game on average this season, ranking first in the NHL.
