The St. Louis Blues lead the league in goals scored by defensemen this season.
If that mark stands this season, it would be just the second time in 52 years that they'd accomplish that. The Blues' defense has scored 45 goals this season, while the Flyers and Rangers both have 44. To put that into perspective, 15 of the 31 teams in the NHL have scored fewer than 30 goals. "Even when we’re not scoring, it seems like we’re able to generate chances for our forwards, or for each other," Alex Pietrangelo said. "Open up space. Right now, pucks are going in, so it’s important to have that balance in the back end, too. It takes a little bit of pressure off the forwards." Pietrangelo is leading the way for the Blues, as he's scored 16 times this season. Mar 14 10:37 am (EST)
