Ottawa vs St. Louis (By: Mulder)
Stone, Dzingel and Duchene scored 41% of all the Senators goals till they got traded. So no suprise that they scored just 1.9 goals (!) per game over their last 10 games. On the defensive side they are suprising me, especially at home, so their last 5 home games all went under.
Nilsson is confirmed in goal: 3.08 GAA, 0.90 SV%. At home however a better 2.88 GAA and especially this month he has been solid: 1-1> 2.55 GAA.
Blues have some important injuries as Tasarenko is injured. Indeed, the red hot Russian was killing it the last months and he scored 28 goals this season. Also Perron ( 17 goals, 35 points ) and Edmundson ( 11 points ) are out.
Blues are a great physical team, but their offense cooled off big time as they scored just 2.2 goals per game over their last 10 games.
Allen is confirmed in goal: 2.90 GAA, 0.90 SV%. Two things here though.
1) He is in great form as he has a 2.33 GAA, 0.92 SV% this month.
2) On the road he is much better with a 2.28 GAA, 0.92 Sv%.
Odds on the Blues are too low, especially without Tasarenko, so i see some value on the under instead.
