Leddy distributed three assists and added three hits in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Avalanche in Game 5. Leddy factored in on three of the Blues' five goals, including setting up Tyler Bozak for the game-winner 3:38 into overtime. Considering Leddy had just two points in seven playoff contests prior to Wednesday, this was an unexpected burst of offense from the blueliner. He's added nine shots on net, nine hits, six blocked shots and a plus-5 rating while playing in a top-four role.
Leddy picked up an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Avalanche in Game 3. Leddy set up a Ryan O'Reilly tally in the second period. Through six playoff outings, Leddy's been limited to two points, eight shots on goal, six hits and a plus-4 rating. The 31-year-old should continue to play on the top pairing, but his lack of power-play time doesn't bode well for his ability to up his scoring pace.
Leddy scored a goal on three shots and added two hits in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Wild in Game 6. Leddy opened the scoring at 14:59 of the first period. The defenseman missed three games with an upper-body injury during the first-round series, and this was his first point in three playoff outings. He's added three shots on net, five hits and a plus-1 rating while playing in a top-four role when healthy.
Leddy (upper body) will return to the lineup for Tuesday's Game 5 against the Wild, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. This is great news for the Blues, as Leddy did a great job of shutting down Minnesota's top line in Game 1 before missing the next three contests with an upper-body issue. Look for the 31-year-old American to skate on the top pairing Tuesday.
Leddy (upper body) will be a game-time call versus Minnesota on Tuesday, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports. Leddy has already missed the last three postseason games after suffering his upper-body injury in Game 1 on May 2. With Marco Scandella (lower body) and Torey Krug (lower body) already out, St. Louis could certainly use some good news on the blue line by getting Leddy back. If he does play, Leddy should be in the mix for power-play minutes, including possibly suiting up with the No. 1 unit.
