Arizona vs St. Louis: NHL Central Division Duel in The Desert

Arizona vs St. Louis: NHL Central Division Duel in The Desert

St. Louis has been singing the Blues recently

Perched in third place in the Western Conference on December 16, 2014, five points out of first, St. Louis has hit the skids as they have dropped to fourth overall and nine points out of the lead. The Blues are on a 2-5-1 slide as they close out a four-game road trip tonight. We liked St. Louis as Cup contenders in the preseason and still feel they have a buy low price. Despite mediocre numbers from some of their stars (Alexander Steen, Paul Stastny and David Backes) the Blues are still a top ten scoring club as they are tied for seventh. Their 2.95 goals per game has led them to a 23-13-3 record.

Arizona Coyotes: Stumbling through a long season in the desert

Players like Vladimir Tarasenko and T.J. Oshie have stepped up their play for St. Louis and we expect the trio above will hit their stride eventually. Turning things around in the desert is certainly possible as the Coyotes are 27th overall with a generous 3.21 goals against average. Arizona (15-19-4) isn't a scoring powerhouse either as their 2.34 goals per game has them ranked 25th in the NHL. That said, the 'Yotes are on a 4-1-0 run and they just crushed a hot Columbus club 6-3 at home on Saturday. One never knows what they'll get out of Arizona as they were shutout 6-0 in Dallas this past Wednesday.

NHL Puck Betting Predictions: Arizona has earned nine of ten points in their last five games at Gila River Arena. While St. Louis is the better team, the Coyotes running hot at home will keep us away from the puck line. Neither of these squads are fond of games that go into extra time as just five of their last 30 combined contests have gone beyond 60 minutes. Bettors receive even money with St. Louis on the 3-Way price posted at the BetOnline sportsbook - we'll back the Blues with a 300 unit wager.
