Hockey-Reference Numbers For Nerds

Despite suffering the disheartening loss in St. Louis earlier this season, Frederik Andersen leads Anaheim in all-time points percentage against St. Louis, going 4-1-0 for a 80.0% mark. That's better than Jean-Sebastien Giguere, who at 14-6-3 got points from 73.9% of his starts against the Gateway City side, while posting a .916 save percentage. Outside of single start goalies, Andersen's .946 SV% vs the Blues is best in franchise history, followed by current desk analyst and original MIghty Duck Guy Hebert, who despite a 9-13-4 record had a .921 SV% against the team he began his NHL career with.

Meanwhile, Jake Allen is a perfect 3-0-0 against the Anaheim Ducks in his career, having allowed just three goals against on 87 shots while collecting one shutout. However, he'll have to win his next three against the Ducks to top the best Blues goalie all-time against Anaheim, Roman Turek, who went 5-0-1 with a .938 SV% against the Fowl.
