The Vegas Golden Knights and St. Louis Blues meet Saturday in NHL action at the Enterprise Center.
The Vegas Golden Knights look for a win after winning seven of their last nine games. The Vegas Golden Knights are averaging 3.2 goals per game and are scoring on 17.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Max Pacioretty leads Vegas with 12 goals, Mark Stone has 22 assists and Shea Theodore has 56 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vegas Golden Knights are allowing 2.1 goals per game and are killing 88.1 percent of their opponents power plays. Robin Lehner has given up 15 goals on 136 shots faced and Marc-Andre Fleury has given up 29 goals on 465 shots.
The St. Louis Blues need a win here to snap a three game losing streak. The St. Louis Blues are averaging 3.2 goals per game and are scoring on 19 percent of their power play opportunities. Brayden Schenn leads St. Louis with 12 goals, David Perron has 18 assists and Justin Faulk has 60 shots on goal. Defensively, the St. Louis Blues are allowing 3.1 goals per game and are killing 73.6 percent of their opponents power plays. Jordan Binnington has allowed 49 goals on 533 shots and Ville Husso has allowed 27 goals on 232 shots.
The Golden Knights are 13-3 in their last 16 games playing on 0 days rest and 39-17 in their last 56 overall. The Blues are 1-6 in their last 7 home games. The under is 9-4 in Golden Knights last 13 overall. The over is 11-5 in Blues last 16 games playing on 0 days rest. The Golden Knights are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in St. Louis. The favorite is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
The Vegas Golden Knights continue to pile up the victories and their win last night only adds to their confidence. The St. Louis Blues can't feel great about their loss last night, as they came back and still ended up with a losing effort. Vegas has now won four of the last five meetings against St. Louis and has feasted offensively in those contests. It's just hard to bet against the Golden Knights in their current form. I'll lay the cheap price with the road team.
