Pietrangelo was named the first star of Thursday's 4-2 Game 1 loss to the Wild, despite not registering a point, as he was plus-2 and put six shots on net in 25:41 of ice time.

Pietrangelo is coming off a solid 46-point regular season and the Blues controlled the game when he was on the ice in this one - they attempted 19 more shots than the Wild at even strength when Pietrangelo was out there. He is a key to the Blues having success in the playoffs this year and, despite the loss, he is off to a good start.

Pietrangelo (rest) will not play in Saturday's game against the Wild, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Both the Blues and Wild are resting a number of key players with their playoff spots secure, while also exhibiting a bit of gamesmanship due to the high probability of the two teams facing each other in the first round. Pietrangelo will finish the regular season with seven goals and 46 points over 81 games.

Pietrangelo has had a quietly solid season with 45 points and a minus-1 rating in 79 games. It's not quite up to the standard he set last year, but it is his fourth consecutive full season (not counting the lockout in 2012-13) of more than 40 points and he is 12 shots on net from his career high in shots. Still not yet 25 years-old, Pietrangelo is a top fantasy defenseman.

With a whopping 188 shots on goal, the two-way force is an automatic roll every game.

Pietrangelo contributed a pair of assists in Sunday's win over the Stars.

Pietrangelo's steady string of production continues, as he's now got 37 assists on the season -- 47th most in the NHL. He logs heavy minutes for the Blues and is on track to hit the 40-point barrier for the fourth time in his career. The 25-year-old is as reliable as they come.

Pietrangelo dished out two assists -- one on the power play -- Tuesday in a 5-4 win over the Jets.

He's been rolling steadily of late, with four points in his last four games, though Pietrangelo's plus-minus (minus-3) has been curiously lagging for a Blues team that sports a plus-43 goal differential. This despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of his points have come at even strength. Nonetheless, even though Pietrangelo will fall short of his third 50-point season this year, he'll surely rack up 40-plus for the fourth time in his career, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Pietrangelo was minus-3 with four shots on net Thursday in a 3-1 loss to the Flyers.

It has been a disappointing year for Pietrangelo owners who were expecting better than 33 points in 64 games and a minus-5 rating. He is logging the same kind of tough minutes as in past seasons, but with a career-low shooting percentage so a few more goals could be coming. He still has a shot at cracking the 40-point barrier, so it could be worth trying to buy low on the 25-year-old as he has a very good chance to bounce back and be among the top-10 defensemen in real life and fantasy.
