98 goals-against average,. 935 save percentage and four shutouts over his career. It should be noted, however, that the Blues are catching the Jets in the midst of a little slump of their own. Although second in the Central Division at 31-19-1 for 63 points, Winnipeg has lost its last three games — matching its season-long losing streak — and has dropped five of its last seven. Hellebuyck was pulled for the first time this season on Saturday, after allowing four goals in the Jets’ 4-0 loss to Philadelphia. No ThomasCenter Robert Thomas came out on the ice for Monday’s morning skate, but did only minimal skating before leaving after just a few minutes. So he’s a no-go for tonight’s game.

So we gotta do a good job of checking ‘em tonight. On Oct. 24 in Winnipeg, just the sixth game of the season for St. Louis, the Blues lost 4-0.
