Pittsburgh won 3-1 in the visit of Arizona Coyotes last Saturday (Arizona Coyotes – Pittsburgh Penguins 1-3 on 21.03.2015), but it doesn’t change the fact, that the hosts are far from their best form in this moment, having won only five of their previous eleven games in March (5-5-1).
Important players like Patric Hornqvist (right wing) and Evgeni Malkin (center) are injured and will miss this game against St. Louis and there is no doubt, that their absence is a big blow for the home team.
St. Louis, on the other hand, will try to avoid a fourth consecutive defeat for the second time since the end of December and although the Blues had problems in most of their previous eleven games in March (5-3-3), I think, that their chances at “Consol Energy Center” are not bad at all.
St. Louis is still in the fight for the top spot in the Western Conference, the visitors have no new problems with injured players and will enter into that game confident from their three victories in the previous four games between these two teams at “Consol Energy Center” (Pittsburgh Penguins – St. Louis Blues 1-4 on 19.12.2006 ; Pittsburgh Penguins – St. Louis Blues 5-1 on 20.10.2009 ; Pittsburgh Penguins – St. Louis Blues 2-3 OT on 23.11.2011 ; Pittsburgh Penguins – St. Louis Blues 0-1 on 23.03.2014).
