How to Watch

Where: American Airlines Center – Dallas, TX.

When: Monday, April 29, 8PM EST

How (TV/Radio): TVA, NBCSN, Sportsnet | WFAN

St. Louis Blues (Away)

Head Coach: Craig Berube {All-Time 113-77-34 STL, PHI}

Recently nominated as a finalist for the Jack Adams trophy for best coach of the season, Craig Berube leads his St. Louis Blues into Dallas looking to avenge their game two loss in enemy territory.

The stats were pretty even during game two as both teams had their advantages. Both goalies faced 34 shots and, as for the Blues, they had five powerplays and 25 hits (compared to Dallas’ two and 16). Unfortunately, the Blues weren’t able to capitalize on their powerplay opportunities. The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for the St. Louis Blues.

Goaltender Jordan Binnington, who has allowed two goals or less in his last four games, will get the start for again between the pipes for St. Louis. Through eights games this playoffs, the 25-year-old has a goals against average of 2.61 and a save percentage of .911. He is 5-3 and has played 483 minutes. Binnington has one assist.

Dallas Stars (Home)

Head Coach: Jim Montgomery {All-Time 43-32-7 DAL}

The Dallas Stars have killed 21 of 22 penalties so far these playoffs. Their penalty killing prowess was on display once again in game two as they killed off all five of the St. Louis Blues’ powerplay chances.

Goalie Ben Bishop, recently named a finalist in the Vezina trophy voting for best goaltender of the regular season, played spectacularly – including holding down the fort on a St. Louis 6-on-4. It was a great bounce-back performance after a rather lacklustre one in game one. Esa Lindell and Ben Lovejoy had strong defensive performances as well, combining for ten blocked shots in game two.

The aforementioned Ben Bishop will get the start again for the Dallas Stars. Through his first eight games Bishop has a goals against average of 2.05, a save percentage of .938, and, like Binnington, is 5-3. He has played 498 minutes and has two minutes in penalties.

Series recap (Series tied 1-1) Game one: 3-2 St. Louis, Game two: 4-2 Dallas

Questions to answer

Will the St. Louis Blues be able to find a way to capitalize on the penalties they draw and figure out a way around the Stars’ penalty killing units?

Both goalies have histories of comeback games after a loss – will Binnington out duel Ben Bishop through game three or will we see Bishop earn the first back-to-back victories of the series.

Will the Blues be able to keep their confidence and bring their physical game into hostile territory?
