St. Louis Blues At New York Rangers Morning Open Thread: Pot A Couple Goals

New, comments

The Blues's scoring troubles continue regardless of their win over the Los Angeles Kings.

So, the Blues haven't been scoring. At all. As Adam so helpfully pointed out, the Blues have scored one goal in five of their last nine games. They won Saturday night against the Kings thanks to a stellar performance by Jake Allen, which still leaves questions - if the Blues couldn't solve Peter Budaj, how in the world will they solve a more talented goaltender?

Oh, look, tonight they face either Henrik Lundqvist or Antti Raanta.

The Blues beat the Rangers on October 15th by the score of 3-2. Scoring three goals in one game? That's unpossible. Well, maybe not completely unpossible with a road power play that's clicking at almost 26%, but still. No one likes to feel like they have an upward slog during the first month of the season, but if the scoring issues continue, it's going to get harder to snap out of it.

This is your morning open thread. Check back later on for your game preview from J-Mill, and don't forget - an Eastern Conference game means an early puck drop.
