St. Louis Blues vs. Vancouver Canucks Game 13 notes, prediction & tweets!

St. Henrik

Friday night was one of the best games of the year right up unti the Canucks lost, overshadowing Hank’s big night and Ryan Kesler‘s return.

The loss will make the Canucks hungry to grab two points against the emerging powerhouse St Louis Blues and began another win streak anew.

Game Notes

Note the start time, which isn’t the traditional 7 pm. Hate to see you miss the first.

One point seperates these two teams in the standings, as once again the West is a logjam all the way throughout the standings.

What to Watch: St Louis

The Blues aren’t so hot after their quick start, just 5-4-1 in their last 10. They had lost five straight before collecting wins against Detroit and Calgary this week.

Alex Steen not only leads the Blues in scoring but he’s also inherited the title from Milan Hejduk of the most-feared Canuck killer.

He’ll factor in somehow.

Blues vs. Canucks

Canucks last home game before they hit the road

The Blues have stymied without Jaroslav Halak and Ken Hitchcock has made his displeasure vocal, even taking the team to task for a 20 minutes effort in a 5-2 win over the Flames.

Jake Allen will get the start for the Blues and try to win his third straight.

Line-up

  • David Perron-David Backes-TJ Oshie
  • Jaden Schwartz-Patrik Berglund-Chris Stewart
  • Andy McDonald-Alex Steen-Vladimir Tarasenko
  • Matt D’Agostini-Scott Nichol-Ryan Reaves
  • Ian Cole-Alex Pietrangelo
  • Barret Jackman-Kevin Shattenkirk
  • Kris Russell-Roman Polak
  • Jake Allen

What to Watch: Vancouver

It’s full steam ahead for the Canucks, who are just missing David Booth now.

Roberto Luongo will get the start between the pipes and we’ll see if he finally delivers a subpar performance this year. I know Cory Schneider will breathe a bit easier if he does.

This is the Canucks last home game before they hit the road next week.

Line-up

Prediction

This’ll be a slog, and the Canucks never traditionally play the Blues well. 3-2 St Louis in OT, Steen with the winner.
