St Louis Blues vs Pittsburgh Penguins Preview Betting Pick 11/25/15
St Louis Blues vs Pittsburgh Penguins Preview Betting Pick 11/25/15 , Canadiens vs Rangers Free NHL Pick, Boston Bruins vs Detroit Red Wings Prediction Tonight
The Blues come into tonight’s match-up in Pittsburgh at 14th in the league in scoring 2.6 goals per game and 21st in power play conversions, while on defense they are 8th in the league in goals allowed 2.4 goals per game and 4th in penalty kill.
Quite impressive considering all the injuries they have and still have since the beginning of the season. As a matter of fact I expected the Sabres to beat the Blues earlier in the week, until the Blues rallied back and won in OT. Vladimir Tarasenko leads St. Louis with 13 goals, Alexander Steen has nine assists and Colton Parayko has 48 shots on goal.
The Penguins have had minimum offense this year, not surprising considering Crosby is slacking and Malkin blows. Phil Kessel has been playing well and this team seems to be jelling together at the right time. Pittsburgh does have a winning record and that’s because they are 6th in the league in goals allowed 2.3 goals per game and 6th on the penalty kill. All thanks to Marc-Andre Fleury.
Fleury is 10-7 with a 2.19 goals against average on the year. He should get the start tonight however he has struggled against St Louis in his career, going just 3-6 with a 2.34 goals against average. Also take into account I believe that 3-6 record was when Fleury was a pylon in net. He has rebounded nicely since then and remains atop of the goalie standings.
