The St. Louis Blues will open a five-game homestand tonight against the visiting Minnesota Wild. After taking wins in their last two contests, the Blues will look to continue forward in their battle for the top spot in the NHL. The steaks are equally high for Minnesota.
Odds are they won’t be able to catch the Colorado Avalanche for the third seed in the Central Division, meaning that the Wild will need to secure one of the two Wild Card spots to make the postseason. With a six-point lead over the nearest non-wild card squad, Minnesota has some wiggle room for a bad outing or two, but they’ll likely be looking to make a statement against a team they could possibly see in the first or second round.
Will the Blues be able to open their homestand with a strong showing? Or will the Wild be able to turn around their recent fortunes in St. Louis? Don’t miss a moment of the action. Here’s how to catch the game online or locally:
