    Bruins 3, Blues 1: Home ice advantage. Big-game experience. Hot goalie. Dangerous power play. The Bruins have too many factors going for them. They are confident after going into St. Louis and beating the Blues 5-1 to force a Game 7. The Bruins trademark this season has the been the consistency they bring each and every game.

      Would love to see a Bruins defenseman score in overtime, go flying through the air and get a statue outside TD Garden. But Boston should get this done in regulation. 70%

  • Best two words in sports, GAME SEVEN! Lets go baby this one should be a good one. I a, siding with the home team Bruins in this one. I still cant believe that the Blues Organization printed shirts and posted an ad in the paper congratulating their team on winning this thing before the fat lady had sung. I think that karma alone kills them. The Bruins have been one of the best teams in the league all year and Tuukka Rask has been the best goalie in the postseason so far. Jordan Binnington has been tough this year, but he has been a bit weaker in the postseason. He had just six losses in the Regular season, but 10 so far in the playoffs. Take the Bruins to raise the cup tonight

    Tuukka Rask has been unfairly maligned by a segment of the Boston fanbase for years. But a shutout in Game 7 and walking away with the Conn Smythe Trophy would be a good way for the winningest goalie in Bruins history to cement his legacy.

  • Lord Stanley will reside in St. Louis after tonight. I believe the Blues will take the Title on their home ice Sunday night. Jordan Binningtgon has been tough to score on the last two games and the Blues have found out a way to stop the Boston power-play. They have plenty of momentum and the Enterprise Center will be rocking all night long. Its hard to see the Bruins coming out on top in this one.

  • Game 1 and 3 went well Over and I like the reward at +115 on the OVER tonight. Jordan Bennington has an 873 save percentage/3.90 goals in this series. He took a while to blossom and he's been cold in the limelight. Bruins score often all year and the fatigue of the playoffs is showing. Blues are well overwhelmed in this series which means goals will come often.

    Although the bookmakers expected to see a low-scoring series, two of the previous three contests were finished in the over with six or more goals in the total. The Bruins offense seems sharp, and the over has hit in seven of the previous ten head-to-head duels in St. Louis, so Im taking the over. Betting Pick: Over 5.5 goals (+120)

  • I like Boston to come away with another victory in St. Louis Monday night. Boston is clearly the better team and I believe they will win this series and the Stanley Cup. They still have some work to do and it will start tonight on the road. Binnington had a 1.89 GAA during the regular season, but he has posted a 2.54 GAA in the playoffs so far. He is still a young goalie and the experience goes to Rask, who has allowed a mere 1.75 gpg over his last 16 games. Boston is also far superior on offense and they showed that by putting up seven goals in game three. Take the Bruins to grab a commanding 3-1 lead in this series with all the pucks they put on net.

    My Pick: Boston +100 70%

      Thats exactly right - hope they execute well today!

  • I like the Blues here at home. Confidence and momentum are key in winning in the postseason, and Blues have it. The Bruins just had their eight-game winning streak snapped at home in overtime which led to the momentum shift. While this not only gives the Blues momentum it also fills them with confidence after grabbing a huge win in game two of this series on Bostons ice. The Blues have been dominate at home this year, especially when Binnington took over in net. He went 14-2 with a 2.02 GAA at home during the regular-season and that included a 2-1 home win over the Bruins in a shootout. While this should be a close, scrappy contest, I like the Blues to continue what they have going and take a series lead here.

    Boston is just too good right now. They shook off any rust in the first period of Game 1 then they took over the game. I expect more of the same here. I'm going with Bruins

    Winnipeg Free Press: WDVF DFV DFV

    The Winnipeg Jets have locked up some additional depth by re-signing defenceman Nelson Nogier.

    The restricted free agent inked a one-year, two-way deal Tuesday that pays him $700,000 if playing in the NHL and $80,000 if in the the American Hockey League.

    Nogier, 23, has spent the majority of his pro career with the Manitoba Moose but has appeared in 11 games with the Jets, including one last season when injuries depleted the blue-line.

    He had one goal and eight assists in 74 games with the AHL club last season. Nogier missed the majority of the 2017-18 season with an injury.

    Fansided: Washington Capitals: New-look New Jersey Devils will present a challenge

    When you own the first overall pick in the draft, there are plenty of holes to fill. The only team below them in the standings in the Eastern Conference was the Ottawa Senators. Thus, the sky is the limit on how much the New Jersey Devils can improve and will be a challenging opponent for the Washington Capitals.

    The Devils started by taking Jack Hughes first overall in the 2019 Amateur Player Draft. They immediately used the trade route to improve in adding P.K. Subban by trading their second round pick along with a 2020 second round pick, defenseman Steven Santini, and prospect Jeremy Davies.

    Fansided: Vancouver Canucks: Why they need to hold onto Jake Virtanen

    Five years after drafting him with the No. 6 selection, the Vancouver Canucks are still waiting for Jake Virtanen to reach his full potential and grow into a reliable top six forward and consistent 20-goal scorer.

    Virtanen showed signs of breaking out during the 2018-19 season, posting career bests in goals (15) and points (25) in 70 games. Had he played all 82 contests, perhaps Virtanen would have hit 20 goals once and for all.

    The Canucks signed gritty forward Micheal Ferland to a four-year worth $14 million last week, and you can't help but wonder if the team might be ready to move on from Virtanen in the near future.

    TAMPA -- A warmer climate and a great team are just two of the things Lightning goaltender Curtis McElhinney is looking forward to in the 2019-20 season.

    In an interview with NHL Tonight broadcasters, McElhinney said he is especially looking forward to being on the other side of the Lightning's "high-powered offense" having "faced the brunt of it" last season when the 36-year-old goaltender played for the Carolina Hurricanes.

    "I'm excited to get down there," he said. "This is Round 2 in Tampa for me so hopefully it will be a little bit longer than the last time I went through there.

  • Fansided: There Is No Reason To Think The St. Louis Blues Cannot Repeat

    The St. Louis Blues have done nothing this offseason except resign their own players and make a handful of depth moves to strengthen their minor league system. Although the team could still make more moves, the Blues seem content with the roster they have.

    St. Louis still has three restricted free agents to sign before the season starts in October and there is no indication that the team will not be tendering contract offers to Joel Edmundson, Ivan Barbashev or Oskar Sundqvist.

    For argument's sake, let's assume that all three of those players will be around for the team in the 2019-20 season.
