1* Free Play Blues.
I think the home side is worth the price of admission in this spot. Both teams have for the most part played extremely well all year, but each is stumbling towards the finish line. In a situation like this, I don't think that home ice advantage can be overlooked and feel that it will ultimately help in deciding the outcome of this contest. After winning seven of nine, the Canucks have dropped two straight, including a 4-3 OT loss to Dallas on Saturday. To say this is a revenge game for the home side would be an understatement I think as Vancouver has won five straight in the series. The Blues will be hungry, they're just 1-2-2 in their last five and have lost four of six at home. I am going to call Vancouver's Eddie Lack and St. Louis' Brian Elliot a "wash" tonight, but note that the Canucks are just 4-5 (-2.1 units) following a loss by four goals or more in overtime this season. The desperation level in which St. Louis plays with tonight will be the difference, consider a second look at the BLUES in this one.AAA Sports
