A season-long eight-game winning streak has moved the Blues into a divisional playoff spot in the Western Conference.
The winning streak is the Blues' longest of the season and is the longest active streak in the League. It also is the third-longest winning streak in franchise history and the longest since the team won nine straight games from Oct. 15 - Nov. 5, 2002.
The Blues' longest winning streak ever is 10 games, set from Jan. 3 to Jan. 23, 2002.
Here are some other great stats from the current winning streak:
- The Blues are just two wins shy of tying the longest winning streak in the League this season (Buffalo Sabres, 10).
- During the streak, the Blues have scored 30 even-strength goals, which shares first in the NHL with Toronto.
- The Blues' plus-19 goal differential ranks first in the NHL in that span.
- The Blues have allowed just 14 goals against in the last eight games, which is the second fewest in the League behind the New York Islanders (13).
- Vladimir Tarasenko is on a career-best 10-game point streak (nine goals, eight assists) and is the third Blue to record a point streak of 10 games or more this season (Ryan O'Reilly, David Perron). The last time the Blues had three players each reach point streaks of 10 games or more was during the 1991-92 season (Brett Hull, Adam Oates, Craig Janney).
- Jordan Binnington has won seven straight games, becoming just the second Blues rookie goalie in franchise history to accomplish the feat (Brent Johnson, 2000-01).
With Thursday's 4-0 win against Arizona, the Blues moved out of the Wild Card and into third place in the Central Division.
