The St. Louis Blues and the Anaheim Ducks meet in NHL action from the Honda Center on Monday night.
The St. Louis Blues will look to build on a 7-6 win over the San Jose Sharks to snap a three-game losing streak. David Perron leads the Blues in scoring with 21 points including 6 goals with 15 assists while Ryan O’Reilly has 19 points with 7 goals and 12 assists. Jordan Kyrou’s right behind with 7 goals and 11 assists and Brayden Schenn has 17 points with 10 goals and 7 assists. Mike Hoffman has 6 goals and 9 helpers for his 15 points and Torey Krug has 12 points with 11 assists. Jordan Binnington has an 8-6 record with a 2.66 GAA this season in goal for St. Louis.
The Anaheim Ducks will look to bounce back from consecutive extra time losses to Arizona in their last couple of outings. Max Comtois leads the Blues in scoring with 13 points including 8 goals and 5 assists while Cam Fowler has 2 goals and 8 apples for his 10 points. Rickard Rakell’s got 9 points with 2 goals and 7 assists and Jakob Silfverberg has 8 points split between 4 goals and 4 assists. John Gibson’s made 17 appearances for Anaheim this season, going 5-11 with 3 shutouts.
St. Louis is 6-1 in their last 7 road games and 8-2 in their last 10 games as a road favorite while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games following a win. Anaheim is 5-16 in their last 21 games as an underdog and 1-5 in their last 6 games as an underdog while the under is 9-3 in their last 12 home games. St. Louis is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings between these two teams in Anaheim and 4-0 in the last 4 meetings between these two teams.
The Blues haven’t very consistent lately, sporadically finding wins when they fall into their laps. The thing that Anaheim does consistently is struggle to score and I think that’s going to continue here. Expect the Blues to put their foot down and stomp all over the Ducks here, so I’ll lay it and play it with the Blues here.
