Boston vs St. Louis (By: Mulder)
The Blues are playing well as of late. They won 3 of their last 5 games and had enough chances against the Islanders as well. One of the reasons of their succes has been their 'D. Indeed, they allowed just 5 goals in their last 5 games. If we take a closer look we can understand why.
Over the season they score just 2.8 goals per game ( 24th ) and have a 3.0 GA/G. However, they deserve much better as they showed great stuff defensively: 50.94 FF% ( 12th ), 942 SCA ( 9th ), and they are the second (!) best team ( just behind the Wild ) with a 346 HDCA.
Allen is cofirmed in goal: 3.01 GAA, 0.89 SV%
The bruins on the other side have similair qualities. They allow 2.6 goals per game ( 2nd best ) and score 2.9 goals per game. They have also excellent stuff on the defensive side: 52.19 FF% ( 6th ), 909 SCA ( 4th ), 356 HDCA ( 4th ).
Rask is confirmed in goal: 2.44 GAA, 0.92 SV%.
-Under is 7-1-1 in Bruins last 9 games playing on 0 days rest.
-Under is 6-0 in Blues last 6 overall.
-Under is 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings in Boston.
Two teams that are not the most explosive teams but have their defensive qualities. Both Kills are also in the top 14 so under is my play here.
