The St. Louis Blues and the Los Angeles Kings meet in NHL action from the Staples Center on Saturday night.
The St. Louis Blues will look to build on their 3-2 overtime win over the Kings in their last matchup on Friday.
David Perron opened the scoring for the Blues on the power play just over two minutes into the game and the lead held for all of the first and most of the second period before Jeff Carter tied the game at one for the Kings. Dustin Brown pushed L.A. in front by a count of 2-1 just :37 into the 3rd period on the power play and the Kings nearly held on for the win but Perron would save the day for St. Louis, tying the game at two with just :44 to go in regulation, forcing some extra hockey. Mike Hoffman would end up being the overtime hero for the Blues, potting the game winner just 1:30 into the extra frame.
Ville Husso got the win in goal for the Blues after stopping 28 of the 30 shots faced in the winning effort while Cal Petersen ended up with the loss, falling to 4-4-3 on the year as a result after allowing all 3 goals on 22 shots faced In the defeat for L.A.
St. Louis is 16-5 in their last 21 road games and 11-5 in their last 16 games played on no rest while the over is 22-6 in their last 28 Saturday games. Los Angeles is 18-37 in their last 55 Saturday games while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall. St. Louis is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams in L.A.
Normally you see a back-to-back and go against the team that won game one as it’s hard to beat the same team twice on a back-to-back. However, the Kings are back in a freefall right now, and I expect the Blues to send the Kings down one step further. The price once again isn’t all that bad on St. Louis here, so I’ll lay the juice with the Blues in this spot.
