Blues Win – November 9th, 2017: ARI (2) @ STL (3)
Blues Loss – January 20th, 2018: ARI (5) @ STL (2)
Tonight, the Blues and Coyotes meet for the last time this season.
- Jake Allen: 27-21-3 (2.69 GAA & .907 SP)
- Carter Hutton: 16-7-3 (2.02 GAA & .934 SP)
It’s not clear who will be starting in net for the St. Louis Blues as of yet. While the Coyotes feel it’s likely that Carter Hutton will start, I feel it’s very possible that Head Coach, Mike Yeo rides the hot hand (regardless of #34 taking on back to backs). I’m expecting Allen, however, I won’t be disappointed if Hutton gets the nod either.
- Antti Raanta: 19-16-6 (2.33 GAA & .927 SP)
- Darcy Kuemper: 2-6-1 (3.15 GAA & .899 SP)
Antti Raanta will be starting between the pipes for the Coyotes.
