Time for a quick “Pat Trick” as the Blues come home from a disappointing loss at Columbus. The Note host the New York Islanders Thursday night at Scottrade and on FS Midwest. The Islanders have won four straight road games and six of seven. But as the “Pat Trick” shows, the Blues will be tough to beat if these three stats hold up.
3. The Blues try to extend their franchise record for earning at least a point consecutive home games. They are 16-0-3 in their last 19-games at Scottrade Center.
2. The Blues also have the League’s best record against the opposing conference. The Note are 11-0-2 versus the Eastern Conference this season.
1. And finally, the Blues magic number seems to be three. When they score three or more goals they are a perfect 25-0-0 this season. When they score two goals or less in 2011-2012 they are just 9-15-7. Goal scoring has been a real problem on the road. Something they must correct down the stretch.
