NHL News and Predictions


Betting on the St. Louis Blues

All Game Lines Here

The Blues live to fight another day after taking down Nashville in Game 5, 2-1. The team was aggressive all game long, outshooting Nashville in each period, though that was mostly because St. Louis was gifted with five power play opportunities.

The Blues weren’t able to convert any PP goals, though. They’re 0-fpr-8 on the man advantage over the past three games and their scoreless trend in that situation could be due to end later tonight. St. Louis’ special teams have to wake up, as the Blues are just 1-for-14 on the PP so far in this series.

Jaden Schwartz scored the game-winner in Game 5, which was his second goal of this series. He’s been playing with an extra oomph throughout, having gotten off 15 shots in five games. Schwartz’s line that also features Paul Stastny and Vladimir Tarasenko is expected to lead an all-out approach from the Blues, who’s looking to score another win to keep their season alive. They are 7-3 in their last 10 road games.

Betting on the Nashville Predators

All Game Lines Here

The Predators could’ve been resting and preparing for the conference finals by now but they will have to try again tonight at home.

Playing a playoff game in Nashville has been a positive experience for the Predators since last season and the team is hoping their undefeated postseason win streak at home gets extended in Game 6. Dating back to last year, the Predators are 8-0 in their last eight games at Bridgestone Arena.

In addition to that, Nashville is 5-0 in its last five contests at home versus the Blues.

The pressure is still on the side of St. Louis, but Game 6 could still feel like a Game 7 for the Predators, who’ll be the road team if a Game 7 became necessary. That happening would become less likely should the Preds’ top line come out to play tonight.

Filip Forsberg, Ryan Johansen and Viktor Arvidsson have combined for a mere three points thus far this series after registering 15 in the first-round sweep of the Blackhawks.

Pekka Rinne is still doing an admirable job in front of the net despite Game 6’s loss. He made 30 saves out of the 32 shots he saw on Friday. He’s allowed two or fewer goals seven times in the postseason.

Writer’s Prediction

Nashville ends the series with a 3-2 win.
