10* Under Blues/Ducks (10:05 ET): A matchup involving the league's lowest scoring team seems pretty conducive to an Under, right? The fact that Anaheim has scored the fewest number of goals in the league has resulted in them having the worst goal differential (-57) as well. This even after winning B2B games, including a 3-1 victory last night in Arizona. Tonight is a tough assignment though as the Blues have had three days off compared to none for the Ducks. St. Louis was the hottest team in the league before dropping four of its last six games. Take the Under here.
When it ripped off a franchise record 11 consecutive victories last month, St. Louis delivered four shutouts, including three in a row. But they've predictably started to regress on the goals allowed side of the ledger, giving up nine in the last two games alone. Rookie Jordan Binnington was in many ways the catalyst for the Blues' second-half surge, but he gave up three goals on just 20 shots to Dallas on Saturday. He's expected to be back between the pipes tonight and I'll stay confident in him given his 15-3-1 record in 19 starts, 1.68 GAA and .933 save percentage.
Whether it's Binnington or Jake Allen in goal here for St. Louis, stopping Anaheim from scoring should not prove difficult. Over the last seven games, the Ducks have managed to scored only 10 goals, half of those coming in the L2 games. They've been shutout twice. The Under is 3-0 for the Ducks this month and 7-1 this season when playing the second night of a back to back. Even better is the fact they are 9-0 Under this season when coming off a win by two or more goals. Throw in the fact St. Louis is averaging just 1.6 gpg its last five games and you have a clear play on the Under here. 10* Under Blues/Ducks
