Another aspect of the Blues' play needs to improve. This one is offensive production.
The Blues have shown flashes of brilliance this season, showcased by the Blues' statement season opener, defeating the Red Wings 6-0. The Blues have the ability to put the pucks in the net, but they are experiencing a scoring drought again.
During the Blues' six-game winning streak, they averaged 2.3 goals a game and only 1.3 goals in the last three games of that winning streak. Overall, the Blues average 2.6 goals a game, which is good for 17th in the NHL. It's not terrible, but it needs to get better.
The Blues have a lot of potential. David Backes, T.J. Oshie, David Perron, Patrik Berglund and Vladimir Tarasenko—all of them have the offensive capabilities to put the puck in the net numerous times. It's just not happening. The good news is this is a problem the Blues can fix relatively easily.
The Blues need to continue to get shots to the net, because they will eventually get the puck into the net. If the Blues stay patience and look for their chances, they will get the goals. And once they do, the Blues will be very good.
