Good to see 55 score. He's been struggling big time this season but still logging big minutes. It's rumored he's battling injuries, but I don't see who can pick up his minutes.

Hopefully scoring at least helps his confidence some
Now that Pietrangelo is gone, Parayko absolutely HAS to log huge minute totals every game possible. He's a big body, who is tough to get around, and skates well. EVEN when he's not contributing to the team's scoring, his being out on the ice still helps a lot, especially while Krug is still adjusting to fit in with The Blues' defensive system, and gel with his new teammates.

Parayko has been horriawful.
I didn’t see game but Dunn had more ice time than Parayko. He must of been bad - ha
Parayko started the game a little shaky, but, overall, I 'd say he played a pretty decent game. ALL The Blues started off unable to keep up with the energetic hard-skating Ducks. But, The Blues started playing well in the second half of The 1st Period. But, after they tied the game, and moved ahead, they played very confidently, and good things started and kept on happening. So, they ended up with a dominating 2-game sweep. Faulk looked really good again, using the body, and playing well in all phases of the game. I'm feeling really good about him now (unlike last season). Krug wasn't all that great, but, he's improving slowly. I liked the way Scandella was playing the physical game. I think that the improvement of Faulk, Scandella, and addition and improvement of Mikkola (who played confidently and well) and I hope, from Krug as well, will make up for the loss of Pietrangelo. I also expect Parayko's game to improve significantly with more playing time and having more responsibility. I think The Blues can be right at the top, along with The Avs and Knights. I expect The Blues' offence to gear up, with Krug, Faulk, Scandella, and Mikkola getting more involved in breakouts, and getting deeper in The O-Zone, as they get more integrated into the team's offensive scheme. They do need a lot more work on leaving the D-Zone, joining the rush, and power play and 5on 5 working the puck in deeper. I'm hoping that will come fairly soon. Who is the PP coach this season?

I’m very happy to see Hurricane Faulk here in STL. He’s playing like the guy we knew in Carolina.

Faulk leads the NHL in plus/minus with a plus 11. And he’s in the top 10 in hits with 34 so far. Dude is playing at a high level right now.

Good question, I don’t know who is running PP. Anyone know?
