If history is any indication, rookie goalie Jordan Binnington will have a strong bounce-back game for the St. Louis Blues in Game 4 of the Western Conference First Round against the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday (9:30 p.m. ET; CNBC, TVAS, SN, FS-MW).
For the first time in his NHL career, Binnington allowed more than four goals in a game, a 6-3 loss to the Jets in Game 3 on Sunday.
Binnington, who was strong in stopping all 13 shots in the first period, allowed six goals on 16 shots the rest of the way, only the fourth time in 33 NHL regular-season and Stanley Cup Playoff starts he's allowed more than three goals.
"It's about having a short memory and doing what makes you feel good for the next game," Binnington said. "I think that's what we focus on as a team and just believing in ourselves and trying to be as consistent as we can by preparing properly and that's what we're going to do.
"I think it's a lifestyle and it comes with time and consistency and being relentless every day. You've got to prepare. That's what you've got to do as a group and me personally. Experience comes in and you just remember the way you play the game and try to dictate Game 4."
The 25-year-old was 24-5-1 with a League-leading 1.89 goals-against average during the regular season; he was tied for fourth in save percentage at .927.
