The over is 11-1-1 in Rangers last 13 overall. Goaltender Frederik Andersen is on pace to finish among the top in terms of games started by a goaltender, and the Coyotes just can't seem to keep their tandem healthy.

The incident occurred at the end of the third period of the Blues' 5-2 win over the Rangers on Saturday. The Rangers were also out hit by the Devils, 20 to 19.

The Rangers matched season-high six goals in a win over the DevilsNew York returned home from a four-game road trip on which they suffered three defeats and responded with wins over the Colorado Avalanche and divisional rivals New Jersey Devils.

The New York Rangers are on the road for a battle with the St. Louis Blues. Igor Shesterkin was huge in goal for the Rangers, turning away 46 shots out of a possible 49 saves. The Rangers had goals from: Artemi Panarin, Tony DeAngelo (3), Chris Kreider, and Jesper Fast. Among the team's 45 games this season, 22 have gone under the total, while 22 have gone over and none have pushed. Brendan Lemieux (hand) and Libor Hajek (knee) are out for the next three or four weeks, while Ryan Lindgren (lower-body) is questionable to face St. Louis on Saturday."Going forward, we've got to be good defensively".

On the other side, the over has cashed in seven of the Blues' last 10 home games, is 5-1 in their last six games versus Eastern Conference competition and for one reason or another, has hit in six straight games when St. Louis has played on a Saturday. The Rangers are the 13th team when it comes to powerplay conversion (20.4%), while St. Louis is the 12th team in the National Hockey League in penalty kill percentage (80.9%).

The Blues have converted on 25.2 percent of their power play chances this season, a mark that's good enough for fourth-best in the National Hockey League.
