The Blues led the league last year with a .936 SV% at even strength. A year later, they are dead last at .884. From first to worst. Clearly, there are multitude of factors that go into that insane decline and our problems are not solely related to goaltending. The low shots against are misleading as they are giving up so many more chances compared to 2011-12 during the regular season. They aren't possessing the puck nearly as much as last year. The team defense is not even close to where it should be and the unnecessary risk taking, led by Mr. Pietrangelo, has increased significantly relative to last year. Last game was one of the few times this year where a clear "timely save" on the 4th goal could've been the difference. But even before that, the Shattenkirk turnover on the 3rd goal was another good example of goaltending suffering from a horrible play by a skater.
