WHAT TO WATCH

With back-to-back games and Jordan Binnington starting all five games thus far, Ville Husso could get his first career NHL start on Sunday against the Kings.

Husso's only NHL action was in relief in an 8-0 loss to the Colorado Avalanche on Jan. 15.

Husso, 25, was drafted by the Blues in the fourth round (No. 94 overall) in 2014 and has spent the last four seasons in the American Hockey League. He was named to the AHL's All-Rookie team during the 2017-18 season.

 

THE SERIES SO FAR

Jan. 23: Blues 4, Kings 2
Torey Krug scored his first goal as a Blue to open the scoring, and Vince Dunn, David Perron and Jaden Schwartz also scored to lift the Blues to a 4-2 win at Enterprise Center.

 

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING

"It feels good. Obviously our power play was not catching any breaks there. We need to work a little bit harder and hopefully now that we've got one, the floodgates will open and we'll feel the confidence to continue to work. Hopefully it's the first of many." - Torey Krug, on scoring first as a Blue and notching the team's first power-play goal

"It ended up being a tighter game than we wanted because of penalties. I think they're a good team over there, they made some strides, they're working really hard, they made some good plays. Sometimes they go in, sometimes they don't. It could have gone the other way. The second game of a mini-series is always the hardest so far for teams to win, and we've got to find a way." - David Perron, on first game against the Kings

 

BLUE NOTES

Ryan O'Reilly got his 100th assist as a Blue in Saturday's win against the Kings… The Blues have won four straight games against Los Angeles, outscoring them 17-5 in those games… The Blues were 6-4-0 in the second game of back-to-backs last season… Kings goalie Jonathan Quick, who did not play Saturday, is 9-15-3 in his career against the Blues.
