Alex Pietrangelo collected two helpers during the Blues' 3-0 victory over the Stars on Sunday night.

It was another outstanding game by the Blues top defenseman, who also saved a goal that trickled through Jake Allen. The assists gives him 32 for the season and 38 points. He now has eight points coming with the man advantage.

Alex Pietrangelo is a plus-10 in his last 10 games.

While his minus-two overall rating does not look great, he has vastly improved upon of late. He has four goals and 22 assists this season and should have a better second half.

Alex Pietrangelo registered two assists in Saturday's 5-4 shootout win over Carolina.

Pietrangelo picked up assists on Alex Steen and Patrick Berglund's goals. The 24-year-old has four points in his last three games, and has four goals and 25 points in 42 games this season. Pietrangelo will look to put an average first half of the season behind him.

Alex Pietrangelo has not played well for the Blues thus far this season.

He has registered a mere seven points in 19 games after recording 51 in 81 games last year. Pietrangelo has also been a bit of a liability without the puck as he has a minus five rating after posting a plus 20 rating in 2013-14. We expect Pietrangelo to rebound some, but his poor start can't be erased.

"There's nothing better than playing against an opponent like this, division rival, big game for us."

Alex Pietrangelo worked on his cardio Thursday night against the Kings, skating 30:03 of the 65 minutes.

Statistically speaking, he didn't contribute much else. Just three blocks and nearly eight minutes of special teams times. Coach Ken Hitchcock leaned on Pietrangelo almost five more minutes than anyone else, but let's hope the rest of the Blues D-corps is able to step up their game as the season moves along.

Alex Pietrangelo and Jay Bouwmeester have formed a solid pairing for Canada at the Olympics.

The two of them play together in St. Louis as well and they have helped the Blues maintain their presence as one of the better teams in the league. Pietrangelo and Bouwmeester have formed Canada's third defense pairing and their offensive contributions have been limited to one assist each, but they have been a vital part of Team Canada's outstanding transition game.

Alex Pietrangelo became the first Blues' defenseman to record at least 40 points in his first three NHL seasons.

That's a pretty impressive achievement. In fact, with an assist Thursday night, Pietrangelo became the first NHL defenseman to manage that feat since Dion Phaneuf did it (2005-2008). Pietrangelo is an elite fantasy defenseman who always seems to be underrated. Don't let him slip beyond the second round next draft day.

Alex Pietrangelo had an assist in the Blues' 4-3 shootout win over Nashville on Saturday.

Pietrangelo has six goals and 38 points in 54 games this season. That puts him in a tie for fourth place in the blueliner scoring race. He's not going to catch up with the likes of Erik Karlsson or Duncan Keith, but Pietrangelo is capable of maintaining his current pace and consequently comfortably surpassing the 50-point mark.

Alex Pietrangelo stretched his point streak to six games on Tuesday with an assist.

He has two goals and seven helpers over that span to give him 33 points in 45 matches. If Pietrangelo can continue to score at his current pace then he could end up with 50-60 points at the end of the year.

Defenseman Alex Pietrangelo scored a goal in St. Louis' 2-1 loss to Vancouver Friday night.

Pietrangelo now has seven goals and 25 assists in 44 games this season. There aren't many defensemen out there who you can count on to give you at least 40 points on a yearly basis, but Pietrangelo is one of them. Jay Bouwmeester and Patrik Berglund assisted on the lone goal.
