The St. Louis Blues won each of the first two games at Xcel Energy Center, winning both by 2-1 margins. Now the series shifts to Scottrade Center, where the Wild will try and recapture momentum on the road. After making 51 saves in Game 1, Blues goaltender Jake Allen made 23 saves on Friday. Like Wednesday's series opener, Game 2 appeared destined for overtime, tied at 1 late in regulation before Jaden Schwartz picked a corner through a screen to beat Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk for the winning goal with 2:27 left in the third period. Blues defenseman Joel Edmundson and Wild forward Zach Parise are the leading goal scorers in the series, with each tallying one goal apiece in both games.
• Wild forward Chris Stewart scored 63 goals and 115 points in 211 games over four seasons with the Blues from 2011-2014.
• Wild assistant coach Scott Stevens skated one season for the Blues, scoring five goals and 49 points in 1990-91.
• Blues head coach coach Mike Yeo compiled a 173-132-44 record as the Wild's head coach from 2011 until last February.
• St. Louis assistant coach Rick Wilson served in the same role with Minnesota from 2010 through the end of last season.
• Blues forward Kyle Brodziak spent six seasons in a Wild sweater (2009-15), scoring 169 points, including 72 goals in 446 games.
The Wild has gone six-for-six on the penalty kill in the series. Minnesota did not allow an opponent power-play goal in its last three games of the regular season and went 180-for-217 (82.9 percent) on the penalty kill in the regular season, ranking third in the NHL in fewest power-play goals allowed (37) and eighth in penalty kill percentage.
