Binnington and the Blues will not play the Wild on Monday after the game was postponed, the NHL announced.
Binnington was expected to get the start but will now turn his focus to Wednesday's matchup with Colorado. Monday's contest has been rescheduled for May 12.
Binnington was the first goalie off during morning skate, indicating that he'll start in Monday's road game versus the Wild, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
After a rough patch in March, Binnington has gotten back on track lately with a .953 save percentage and a 2-1-0 record over his last four appearances. The Blues have won their last two matchups against the Wild, allowing three total goals. Kevin Fiala (upper body) is a game-time call Monday, and with 14 goals under his belt, he'll make the Wild's offense and power play more threatening if he can play.
Binnington gave up one goal on 25 shots in Friday's 9-1 win over the Wild.
Binnington allowed a first-period goal to Zach Parise, but the Blues more than covered that one mistake. The 27-year-old Binnington seems to be turning things around with just two goals allowed on 76 shots over his last two starts. He improved to 12-11-5 overall with a 2.65 GAA and a .910 save percentage in 30 games. He's only played both halves of a back-to-back once this year, so Ville Husso should be considered the likely starter for Saturday's rematch with the Wild.
Per Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Binnington was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, indicating he'll guard the home goal during Friday's matchup with Minnesota.
Binnington was fantastic in his last start Wednesday versus Vegas, stopping 50 of 51 shots en route to an impressive 3-1 victory. The 27-year-old goaltender will try to secure his 12th win of the season in a home matchup with a Wild team that's averaging 2.70 goals per game on the road this season, 17th in the NHL.
Binnington gave up only one goal on 51 shots in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Golden Knights.
Binnington was given a 2-0 lead by the 7:21 mark of the first period, and he was stellar in goal to make it stand. It's the best game he's had in quite some time. The 27-year-old goalie improved to 11-11-5 with a 2.71 GAA and a .909 save percentage through 29 appearances this season. The Blues' next three games are against the Wild -- it's likely that Binnington will start two of them.
Per Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Binnington was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, indicating he'll start between the pipes in Wednesday's home game versus Vegas.
Binnington was solid in his last start Friday against Colorado, stopping 36 of 39 shots, but he ultimately suffered his 16th loss of the season due to insufficient goal support from his teammates. The 27-year-old backstop will attempt to snap his five-game losing streak in a home matchup with a Golden Knights squad that's lost three of its last four games.
Binnington made 13 of 14 saves in relief of Ville Husso in Monday's 6-1 loss to the Golden Knights.
The Golden Knights overwhelmed Husso in the second period, which led to Binnington playing the final 30:53 of the game. The 27-year-old was solid, although the game was essentially already determined when he entered. Binnington's record stayed at 10-11-5 with a 2.77 GAA and a .904 save percentage in 28 outings. He'll likely start Wednesday's rematch with the Golden Knights.
Binnington allowed three goals on 39 shots in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche.
Binnington has now lost his last five games (0-4-1), allowing 15 goals in that span. The skid has him down to 10-11-5 with a 2.79 GAA and a .904 save percentage through 27 appearances. With the second half of a back-to-back against the Avalanche on Saturday, Binnington may yield the crease to Ville Husso. If that occurs, Binnington would likely make his next start Monday at home versus the Golden Knights.
Binnington stopped 21 of 24 shots Sunday in a 3-2 overtime loss to Anaheim.
First-period goals by Ryan O'Reilly and Vladimir Tarasenko staked Binnington and the Blues to a 2-0 lead, but the Ducks came all the way back with three unanswered. The Anaheim rally pushed Binnington's winless skid to four games (0-3-1), and the 27-year-old netminder hasn't been able to produce a home win since Feb. 18. He'll have four days off to regroup before a pair of road tilts at Colorado on Friday and Saturday.
Binnington will defend the home goal in Sunday's game versus the Ducks, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Binnington held his own in Friday's loss to the Ducks, stopping 20 of 22 shots, but he received just one goal of offensive support en route to his third straight loss. The Blues scored just three goals during that losing streak, so it's merely bad luck for Binnington. This is still a favorable matchup, as the Ducks rank 29th in the league with 2.20 goals per game.
Binnington allowed two goals on 22 shots in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Ducks. The last two tallies were empty-netters.
Binnington has experienced a little bad luck during his three-game losing streak, as the Blues have given him only two goals of support in that span. He fell to 10-10-4 with a 2.77 GAA and a .904 save percentage in 25 contests. The Blues finish a two-game set versus the Ducks on Sunday, and Binnington should be considered likely to start that game despite his recent struggles.
Binnington will guard the cage in Friday's home game against Anaheim, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Binnington took a loss against the Wild on Thursday, but after facing just 11 shots in the contest, he'll immediately get back in action Friday. The 27-year-old is looking to break out of the funk he's been stuck in for the last month; over his last 11 appearances, Binnington is 2-6-2 with a .883 save percentage and a 3.37 GAA. A matchup with Anaheim, the third lowest scoring team in the league, will offer a good chance to turn things around.
Binnington allowed two goals on just 11 shots in Thursday's 2-0 loss to Minnesota.
Minnesota's 11 shots were tied for the fewest in franchise history, but second-period goals by Marcus Johansson and Kirill Kaprizov were enough to hand Binnington his second straight loss. The 27-year-old Binnington has had a bumpy March, winning just twice in seven starts (2-3-2) with an .892 save percentage, but he will get to face an Anaheim team this weekend that's averaged just 2.15 goals per game.
Per Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Binnington was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, indicating he'll be between the pipes for Thursday's road game versus the Wild.
Binnington struggled in his last start Monday versus the Golden Knights, surrendering five goals on 35 shots en route to an ugly 5-1 defeat.

After enduring a rough patch, Binnington was rock solid in Friday's 2-1 shootout victory over the Sharks, turning aside 30 shots for his 10th win of the year. The 27-year-old has registered a .907 save percentage through 22 appearances this year. The Golden Knights are a daunting challenger, but they may be without Alex Pietrangelo (undisclosed) and Max Pacioretty (lower body) on Monday.
Binnington stopped 30 of 31 shots in Friday's 2-1 shootout win over the Sharks.
Binnington only surrendered a goal to Sharks forward Ryan Donato in the second period. The win snapped Binnington's three-game losing streak. The 27-year-old improved to 10-7-4 with a 2.72 GAA and a .907 save percentage in 22 outings. The Blues and Sharks clash again Saturday, but Blues head coach Craig Berube hasn't named a starter for the second half of the back-to-back yet.
Per Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Binnington was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, indicating he'll get the start in goal in Friday's road game versus San Jose.

Binnington gave up three goals on 23 shots in a 4-1 loss to the Kings on Wednesday. The fourth goal was an empty-netter.
Binnington was stunned for three goals in the first period, and the Blues' offense wasn't strong enough to bail him out over the final 40 minutes. Binnington fell to 9-7-4 with a 2.82 GAA and a .904 save percentage. He has just two wins in his last nine appearances over the last month. The Blues continue their road trip with a back-to-back in San Jose on Friday and Saturday. Binnington and Ville Husso are likely to split those two games.
Binnington will start in Wednesday's road game against the Kings, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Binnington is in a rough patch, as he's recorded an .879 save percentage and a 1-3-2 record over the last seven games. Three of those losses were to the Kings, though he posted a respectable .905 save percentage among those outings. Nevertheless, the Kings are in a similar place, as they've won just two of their last 10 contests.
