What’s up everyone it’s your boy Lavoie here with another winner on the ice. I should really stick to hockey since I am no good at handicapping football right now!
This one sees the very hot Washington Capitals head to the midwest to take on an equally exceptional foe in St. Louis.
The Blues are coming off a loss to the Penguins in a game they actually lead 3-0 early and are looking to shake that one off. And the Caps have not played since January 3rd when they lost to the Devils in overtime.
So let’s dive into this one and see what both teams are doing well this season and made them contenders of their respective divisions.
Much has been made of Alex Ovechkin this season who at 36 years of age looks as good as he ever as and is staring down Wayne Gretzky’s all time goal record. He is only behind Mcdavid in the running for the Hart Trophy with 24 goals and 26 assists.
But there is still a lot more to this team than just their fearless Russian leader. They are deep up and down the lineup and their cup window remains wide open for the time being.
St. Louis Blues
The Blues as I mentioned earlier gave up a lead to the hottest team in hockey two nights ago in a game where they actually played well but just could not fend off the relentless attack of the Penguins.
This team is one of the toughest to game plan for because they beat you in different ways not just on a night to night basis but they give you different looks to defend on a shift to shift basis.
Their big line loves to play from the corners and the rush and so do their young stars like Kyrou and Sundqvist. They also are getting really solid goaltending from Binnington who if not for him the score in their previous game would have likely been much worse.

Washington Capitals vs. St. Louis Blues NHL Prediction
I am taking the Caps in this one as a road dog. I think these teams are pretty evenly matched and taking a side in this one is tough. Both teams are known for their high flying offensive attacks but both are very good on the back end as well.
Also, both starting goalies are expected to start in this one and both are very good. I think it will be an under as well at 6.5 I think that total is too high for this one.
Hammer the caps! And best of luck to you all!
