Game Notes: Feb. 7 at Ottawa

Blues have won three of last four games in Ottawa

by Dan O'Neill / St. Louis Blues

The Blues are set up for success tonight as they have won three of their last four trips to Ottawa, while earning at least a point in each contest. What's more, the Blues have been impressive in the second game of back-to-back sets this season, going 5-2-0. The last time the Blues faced the Senators in the Canadian capital they participated in a franchise-long 11-round shootout. Jake Allen stopped all 11 Senator attempts while Patrik Berglund tallied the lone goal for the Blues. Overall, the Blues have managed at least a point in eight of their last nine games against Ottawa (4-1-4).

What to Watch

Can the Blues continue their strong road play? The club has won four of their last six road outings, including victories over San Jose, Anaheim, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. Defense has been the key as in their four wins, the Blues have conceded only one goal while scoring 11. Carter Hutton has logged three shutouts over his last five road starts, setting a new single-season career high. He has also become just the seventh different Blues netminder to post at least three road shutouts in a single season.
