Given how the game started between the Ducks and Blues, you would never have guessed that Anaheim would be the team who came out on top. Yet they got their act together and pulled off 4-3 defeat of St. Louis, the best team in the NHL. How big a deal is that? It was the first defeat of the Blues who were 37-0-1 when scoring three or more goals in a game.. Too bad the Ducks...
Maintaining their spot among the top eight teams in the Western Conference remains the primary focus for the Los Angeles Kings. Avoiding a first-round matchup with the West-leading St. Louis Blues might also be worth thinking about.
Hoping to better their playoff position, the Kings look to extend their season-best winning streak to six games when they host the Blues in a potential...
