Morning Skate Buzz
The St. Louis Blues (23-19-5, 51pts) come to town tonight in unfamiliar territory for a Ken Hitchcock coached team. They’re a poor defensive team with bad goaltending.
The Blues 26th in the NHL in goals against, have lost three straight and allowed 18 goals during that span.
The Penguins meanwhile, have won four straight and starting to find their stride again just before the all-star break.
