DALLAS — The St. Louis Blues and Dallas Stars meet for the fifth and final time in the regular season on Saturday afternoon at American Airlines Center Martavis Bryant Jersey Elite , and both sides know exactly what to expect from this Central Division matchup.

“Big game,” Blue coach Mike Yeo said after practice on Friday. “We’ve got a big road trip and every game on this trip is big. Always the first game of a trip’s always a big one. They’re playing well. We’ve had tight games against them every game in their building, in our building. They’ve been intense. I think special teams is going to be a real important part of the game tomorrow and we’ll have to be ready to go.”

St. Louis (35-26-4, 74 points) edged the Detroit Red Wings 2-1 at Scottrade Center, which ended a seven-game losing streak and was just the Blues’ third win in their past 10 contests (3-6-1).

The Blues, who are 15-12-4 away from home and start a four-game trip in Dallas Clive Walford Super Bowl LI Jersey , defeated the Stars in each of their first two meetings of the season, both in St. Louis — 4-2 on Oct. 7 and 3-0 on Dec. 7.

However, it’s been a much different story in Dallas as the Stars have won both meetings in the Lone Star State: 4-2 on Dec. 29 and 2-1 on Feb. 16.

“It’s going to be a big one,” Blues center Kyle Brodziak said. “We know what the standings look like. I think guys are going to be excited for it. Just another opportunity to play a hockey game and hopefully we’ll play it well.”

Yeo wouldn’t designate a starting goaltender for Saturday’s matinee, but the prevailing thought is that he will go with backup Carter Hutton over starter Jake Allen.

The Blues are 9-9-2 against the rest of the Central. St. Louis could get defenseman Robert Bortuzzo, out the past five games with a lower-body injury Authentic Akeem Spence Jersey , back for Saturday’s game.

Dallas (36-23-5, 77 points) is currently 1-1-1 through three games of its five-game homestand, including a 5-4 overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday.

One part of that overtime loss to the Lightning which pleased first-year Stars coach Ken Hitchcock was seeing his team overcome a 4-2 deficit after 40 minutes to tie the game, force overtime and come away with a point.

Such late comebacks have been a rarity for Dallas this season. The Stars are just 1-18-2 when trailing after two periods of play.

“Well, we played a strong territorial game (in the third period),” Hitchcock said Friday after practice. “We ground out I think seven or eight scoring chances in the third and two goals. It’s an exhausting way to play because there’s not a lot of energy when you’re mounting a comeback like that Sam Darnold Super Bowl LI Jersey , but you feel good confidence-wise that you can do it again. I think that’s the biggest thing, we worked our way back in that game.”

Hitchcock designated Ben Bishop as his starting goaltender against St. Louis.

The Blues are 1-1-0 since trading forward Paul Stastny to Winnipeg at the trade deadline early last week, but Hitchcock, who coached the Blues until last winter, feels they’ve come together nicely after such a big move.

“Well, you either go up or down Wholesale Chad Thomas Jersey , and there’s no in-between (after a team makes a trade like that),” Hitchcock said. “It looks like they gathered themselves in. They’re thinking they can get within a point here and we’re thinking that we can create five points, so it’s a big game obviously.”
