Shattenkirk & Pietrangelo: Top Fantasy D-Line Duo?
(3/4/12) Sure TJ Oshie scored the gamewinner. Yeah, it's great news that Andy McDonald scored again, this time on the PP. But, perhaps the biggest news out of St. Louis on Saturday is the continued one-two punch from blueliners Alex Pietrangelo and Kevin Shattenkirk. The two have been incredibly consistent this season, and Saturday they combined for four points, 44% of the Blues' total output. Shattenkirk now has 2 goals and 6 points in his last 6 games, while Pietrangelo has 4 assists in his last 4 games and ranks 8th in NHL scoring by defensemen. A big reason for the Blues' emergence this year has to do with the solid play from this dynamic duo.
