Edmonton vs St. Louis: Scoring Burst Has The Blues Streaking
St. Louis Blues: Scoring juggernaut keeps rolling
Winners of four straight contests, by a rather impressive 25-9 margin, St. Louis is closing in on Tampa Bay as the highest scoring squad in the NHL. The Blues are now averaging 3.14 goals per game - just a tick shy of the 3.23 GPG the Lightning have posted. St. Louis (26-13-3) sits fourth overall in the NHL Western Conference and are just five points behind top seeded Nashville. The Blues, who are 15-4-1 at home this season, have owned the Oilers winning nine of the last ten meetings by a 38-18 margin.
Edmonton Oilers: Lost season continues in the Alberta Capital
Last overall in the NHL, another long season of losing continues in Edmonton. Although we have just hit the halfway point of the season, reality has to be setting in for the Oilers (10-24-9) as they are 20 points out of a playoff position in the West. Wounded squads can be dangerous though and Edmonton has posted a pair of 5-2 home wins over the Islanders and Blackhawks so far this month. That said, road trips have not been kind to the Oilers as they have a 2-10-7 record as visitors this season.
Blues vs Oilers NHL Prediction: St. Louis is enjoying some home cooking as they are in the middle of seven game home-stand while the Oilers open a four game road trip tonight. As expected, the Blues are posted as thick chalk on the betting board at the TopBet sportsbook.
