The last time the Montreal Canadiens were in St. Louis, the Blues defeated them 4-3 in overtime thanks to a goal from Ty Rattie. Will Rattie be in tonight? Who knows. The Blues' 3-2 overtime loss to the Jets on Saturday night was disappointing and avoidable, and Winnipeg isn't even playing that well right now. The Canadiens? They're the best team in the NHL.
That's on the back of Carey Price. Price has a 1.82 GAA and a .942 save percentage. Last season's Canadiens' collapse was partially due to the goaltender's injury that ended his season. If he stays healthy the whole season, the Canadiens are on track for a deep playoff run.
After Saturday's loss, expect to see Jake Allen back in net tonight for the Blues.
Oh, and something called an "Andrew Shaw" will be back in town tonight. Brace yourselves for stupidity.
