Saturday March 7th and here at Pucking Hockey we have a free NHL hockey pick between the St. Louis Blues and Toronto Maple Leafs match-up.
It’s All About Brian Elliott
The Blues have lost 2 consecutive games but there’s good news for Blue fans. Elliott has played very well on Saturday, he has gone 8-2-0 with a 1.95 GAA and .926 SV% in 11 starts on Saturday this season.
To make this free NHL hockey pick that much more solid? The Blues will take on the horrific Maple Leafs tonight. The Leafs have only scored 8 goals in their last five games and only winning 2 of those 5 games. The Blues have scored 12 goals in their last 5 games, only winning 2 of those last 5.
I used to fear betting against the Maple Leafs at home, on a Saturday night, but they have shown absolutely NO signs of playing like a professional hockey team this season. So why continue to fear them?
Toronto are 1-8-1 straight up in their last 10 games ,when playing at home against St. Louis.

St. Louis Blues -170
Toronto Maple Leafs +150
St. Louis Blues -1.5 (+170)
Toronto Maple Leafs +1.5 (-200)
The Blues have to learn not to play down to their opponents level, they did their last two games and found themselves on the losing end of both. Their fore-check is not only much better than the whole Leafs team, the Blues are a much tougher team. Can’t wait to see Dion Phaneuf cry over this loss.
The Blues need this win, and unless they come out drunk, they should skate all over the Maple Leafs tonight.
The money line odds are way too high at -170 for me, so I suggest backing the puck-line.
St. Louis Blues -1.5 (+170 odds) Risking $100 to profit $170
