The fans at Scottrade Center will be treated to a game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the St. Louis Blues when they take their seats on Saturday.

ABOUT THE MAPLE LEAFS (8-6-0): Morgan Rielly continued his scoring output with a goal in the waning moments of the second period on Thursday, increasing his point total to eight (two goals, six assists) in his last nine games overall while his season point total of 11 (two goals, nine assists) leads all Toronto defensemen. The 23-year-old Rielly, who also netted a goal in the Maple Leafs’ 2-1 overtime loss to the Blues on Feb. 9, admitted the team’s recent struggles have more to do with effort than errors in the game plan. “The game plan was working when we executed it,” Rielly said of the team’s performance after facing a five-goal deficit on Thursday. “We started working down low and moving our feet.”

ABOUT THE BLUES (10-3-1): Jaden Schwartz, who leads the team in goals (eight) and points (17), enjoyed a fast start to the season and earned the NHL’s Third Star of the Month for October in the process. The 25-year-old looks to continue his offensive touch on Saturday versus Toronto, against which he has recorded six points (two goals, four assists) in six career encounters. Fellow forward Vladimir Tarasenko scored twice versus the Maple Leafs during his 39-goal performance last season and has gashed the club for five tallies and six points in seven career meetings.

Oddsmakers opened the Blues as -127-moneyline favorites versus the Maple Leafs, while the game’s total opened at 5.5.

The St. Louis Blues are left with questions after seeing a four-game winning streak and seven-game point stretch (6-0-1) go by the boards with their first loss at Scottrade Center – in shutout fashion, no less. Coach Mike Yeo hopes the Blues can provide the answers on Saturday when they host a high-octane Toronto Maple Leafs squad that is wrapping up a four-game road trip.

“I think we can be more direct, whether it’s off the rush, whether it’s in the offensive zone. You’ve got to be able to create offense in other ways,” Yeo told reporters on Friday, one day after St. Louis came up empty on 33 shots in its 2-0 setback to Philadelphia. Toronto’s second-ranked offense hasn’t had that issue by averaging 3.79 goals per game, but the Maple Leafs’ fortunes have taken a tumble as they have answered winning six of their first seven contests with losing five of their last seven. Auston Matthews increased his point total to 10 (five goals, five assists) in his last eight games after converting one of his two penalty shot attempts and adding an assist in Thursday’s 5-3 setback to Los Angeles, but the reigning Calder Trophy recipient knows just what the Blues bring to the table. “(St. Louis is) a big, heavy team that has some guys with some offensive skill that can make you pay,” Matthews told the Toronto Star. “… If you turn the puck over in the neutral zone, they’re coming back at you with a two-man rush.”

Last time out for St. Louis, they were a 2-0 loser as they battled the Flyers at home. Moneyline bettors who got the Flyers at +160 were rewarded, while the 2 combined goals moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

Toronto was a 5-3 loser in its last match on the road against the Kings. They lost as +124 underdogs, while the total score of 8 made winners of OVER bettors.
