Blues' Brandon Saad: Slings assist in win

Saad notched an assist and two PIM in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Wild in Game 6. Saad helped out on Tyler Bozak's second-period tally. In six playoff contests, Saad has a goal, two assists, 10 shots on net and a plus-1 rating. His 13:08 of ice time Thursday was his lowest in any game in the first round, which suggests he may continue to see bottom-six usage as the Blues face his former team, the Avalanche, in the second round.

Blues' Brandon Saad: Garners assist in win

Saad logged an assist in Friday's 5-1 win over the Capitals. After starting December with a three-game goal streak, Saad has been limited to just two points in his last 10 outings. That extended slump likely factored into his demotion to the third line Friday, where he helped out on an Oskar Sundqvist tally. Through 31 games overall, Saad has 16 points, 71 shots on net and a minus-6 rating. With players like Ivan Barbashev and Jordan Kyrou in significantly better scoring form, Saad will have to earn his way back into a top-six role.
