The St. Louis Blues will travel to take on the Vegas Golden Knights Thursday in a battle of two teams that have combined for nine victories this season.
The Blues are coming off a 5-4 road victory in shootout fashion against the Knights Tuesday. St Louis picked up its second win on the road this year with that victory.
St. Louis Blues
David Perron has led the way for the Blues offensively. He scored twice on Tuesday and has six points in seven games this season.
Despite a good start record wise, its been a seemingly uncharacteristic start for the Blues defense in 2021. The Blues are allowing 3.7 goals per game and 2.7 goals per game in five-on-five situations. The Blues have allowed two goals or less in only two of their first seven games this season.
While those numbers don’t look ideal, the Blues are still playing at a level similar to last year on the defensive end. The Blues are allowing nearly the same amount of expected goals and high danger chances they were a year ago, so there’s reason to believe in progression moving forward.
Vegas Golden Knights
The Golden Knights are one of the best offensive teams in the entire league. Vegas averages 3.29 goals per game and 31.9 shots on goal a contest.
On the other side of the rink is where I am concerned for Vegas in this contest. The Golden Knights are expected to start Marc-Andre Fleury in this contest as part of a rotation they are doing at goalkeeper early in the season. If that’s the case, Jordan Binnington and the Blues will have an advantage goalkeeping wise.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Blues are 8-3 in their last 11 after scoring 5 goals or more in their previous game.
- Golden Knights are 1-4 in their last 5 vs. a team with a winning record.
- Over is 4-1 in Golden Knights last 5 overall.
- Over is 5-1 in Blues last 6 overall.
Free St. Louis Blues vs. Vegas Golden Knights NHL Prediction:
I’m backing the Blues here on the road. Home favorites have been winning frequently lately, but I’m expecting regression and feel that the Blues are an unfavorable matchup for the Golden Knights.
