Game Notes: Oct. 15 vs. NY Rangers

by Dan O'Neill / St. Louis Blues
Matchup

Saturday's game will be a very special occasion as the Blues welcome back members of the Salomon family to drop the puck before the Blues host the Rangers. Sid Salomon Jr. and Sid Salomon III owned the team from its inception until 1977. Following the pregame festivities, the Blues will take on a Rangers team that has beaten them on consecutive occasions. After wins in Chicago and against Minnesota, St. Louis is looking to win their first three games of a season for just the fourth time in franchise history. Over the past six seasons, they have been a nightmare for Eastern Conference opponents, posting a Western Conference-best 84-33-15 mark since 2010-11.

What to Watch

Blues fans will see Carter Hutton in his first regular season start. Hutton has only faced the Rangers once in his career, stopping 28 of 29 shots in a winning effort. Hutton starred in Blues training camp, going 2-2-1 with a .931 save percentage

In addition, Alexander Steen (148 goals) is just one goal short of Doug Gilmour (149) for 13th on the Blues' career goals register.
