St. Louis will play on a second end of a back-to-back after last night loss on the road to Vancouver Canucks 1-3.
It’s not ideal to back them as a side in this spot and that’s why bookies listed them on the even odds and now they are slight underdogs.
Very positive information for this pick is that Blues rested yesterday their main choice goaltender Jordan Binnington and used his back up Jake Allen so it means Binnington will get a start today.
Calgary are one of the most inconsistent team in the whole NHL this season, you can never be sure what to get from them and the fact St. Louis traveling only from Vancouver tells me to avoid them today even on a short attractive price in this spot.
Calgary got huge inside divisional game on deck tomorrow against Edmonton Oilers and those two are separete by a really small margin in a battle for play off spots.
Calgary are only 3-5 in their last 8 home games.
Calgary scoring offense is ranked very low currently on a 24th place in the NHL.
Flames goalie Talbott was red hot before All Star break with 4-0 record and great Goals Against Average ratio of 1.87.
St. Louis just got back their key defender, Parayko back into the lineup.
St. Louis has given up the second-least goals in the Western Conference, allowing just 134 goals in 49 games.
St. Louis scoring defense is really good,ranked 8th best in the league.
In my view the game sets up well as a lower scoring affair so my pick is on the UNDER on this game.
