St. Louis at Nashville -130 O/U 5
St. Louis heads to Nashville tonight for an always heated Central Division matchup. This begins an important six games in 10 days road trip for the St. Louis Blues. Throw in the game versus Boston last night on home ice and the Blues will be playing seven games in just 11 nights! After a tough loss last night to the Bruins the Blues look to rally the troops on the second part of their back-to-back tonight in Nashville. Don't be so quick to back the Blues here as they are 4-8 this season on the second half of a back-to-backs. Recently on February 4th, they faced this same Nashville team on the road after a win the previous night and fell to the Predators in a 3-1 loss. That brought the season series to a perfect 4-0 for Nashville against the Blues. Nashville has made an early splash at the trade deadline picking up Hal Gill which will surely help their defensive core. Nashville has surprised many this season as they have gone 17-8 since Christmas break playing against some of the stiffest competition in the NHL over that course of time. Pekka Rinne has been superb in goal all season and there is no sign of letup. He can flat out steal wins for this Predators teams if he needs to. St. Louis has played consistently all season long, but this road trip is going to very tough for them. Nashville continues to rise in the standings and it gets the job done at home tonight against the Blues.
