But he may not be coming back to visit anytime soon.
St. Paul, MN (Learfield)- A St. Louis goal with less than two-and-a-half minutes to go gave the Blues a 2-1 N-H-L playoff victory Friday night over the Wild. Puck drop is scheduled for 2 p.m., and the game will be broadcast on NBC. I think you can look at it, we dug ourselves a tremendous hole across the board. "He's been phenomenal. It's fun to watch, it's fun to be apart of, and it's good to see him doing so well, because he is a great goalie".
"I'm sure St. Louis is going to be very aware of it and they'll want to close it out in four more than anything", Boudreau said. We know that. We're going to have to be on our toes, and that's the way they play.
In the midst of a series-defining 60-minute stretch, the Blues got goals from defenseman Colton Parayko, winger Jaden Schwartz, and center Alexander Steen, while star goaltender Jake Allen finished with 40 saves.
"But if we can get a little bit in their head, and more importantly for us start to find the blueprint of what we need to do to be successful and keep getting better as a group, then we're happy".
The Wild are 1-5 in their last 6 Conference Quarterfinals games, 2-7 in their last 9 road games and 27-14 in their last 41 vs.
In the final frame, the Wild threw everything they had at Allen, and he was up the task every single time to preserve the win. Timely goals have given the Blues the lead and forced Minnesota to play from behind for large chunks of the game.
Stastny (lower body) did not make the trip to Minnesota for Friday's Game 2 against the Wild, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. "We've got to regroup".
"You live with this 24 hours, to go to bed thinking about it".

Neither did the harsh reality that Minnesota outshot the Blues 42-17 from the halfway mark of the first period.
"I'm not going to criticize is our effort", coach Bruce Boudreau said. "We're just not capitalizing when we have the chances and then they have".
"He's in the zone and he's really backstopping us right now".
The Blues have had precious few chances to get both a rest day and a practice day in between games recently.
St. Louis appeared to be out of its depth in the opening contest of this series, but perhaps this has been the plan all along. It was just the third playoff goal in 18 games for Edmundson. "A lot of shots from tough angles (and) I did a pretty decent job of keeping pucks away from their players".
"One heck of a shot", Pietrangelo said. "He's got a hell of a shot. It kind of brought us back a little bit".
The Blues received another goal from Joel Edmundson in game 2, blasting a shot home from the point. They controlled the puck more than twice as often as the Blues between both third periods. There's no question that cynicism is coursing through the entire State of Hockey right now, but there are some true characters in the dressing room that can still turn this thing around.
The Blues took a 2-0 lead in the series after picking up another 2-1 win in Game 2. Blues RW Zach Sanford made his career playoff debut, skating on the team's third line. But when you are only giving up two goals in each game played, it's hard to fault the goaltender for the team's struggles.
The Blues are expected to return with the exact same lineup as Game 2.
