Pietrangelo collected an assist in Monday's 6-3 loss to the Sharks in Game 5. After being held off the scoresheet for seven straight, the big Canadian blueliner has grabbed points in back-to-back contests, giving him nine in 19 games this postseason. Pietrangelo is a major minute-muncher for the Blues, as his 27:41 was a game high Monday and he's averaged a whopping 28:52 in the playoffs, so even when he's not producing offensively, the 26-year-old is major cog in St. Louis' machine.
Pietrangelo notched a trifecta of assists -- one on the power play -- in 39:49 of ice time in Thursday's 4-3 double-overtime loss to Chicago in Game 5. Closing out the defending champions is no easy task, and Pietrangelo found that out the hard way Thursday. The blueliner registered his first game this season of three apples, and also his only outing with more than two points. The 26-year-old came to play, and with five helpers in the postseason to date, the 2008 first-round pick has become a threat to produce for the Blues, especially with such massive ice time (he topped the team Thursday).
Pietrangelo notched an assist in Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Capitals. Pietrangelo kept his point streak alive to finish out the regular season. The blueliner reached five straight to the tune of two markers and five apples, easily his best stretch of the year. The 26-year-old will aim to continue his momentum in the first round of the playoffs against Chicago.
Pietrangelo notched an assist on the game-winning goal in Thursday's 2-1 overtime win over the Blackhawks. Pietrangelo was able to keep his early-April showers coming, as the 26-year-old has impacted the scoresheet in four straight -- tied for the longest streak of his season. The blueliner is underperforming this year, sitting at just 36 points despite seeing first-pair minutes.
Pietrangelo picked up a pair of assists in Monday's win over the Coyotes. Both of the helpers came on special teams, the first on the power play and the latter while killing one off. The defenseman is racing toward the finish line, as he's now logged five points in the last three games.
