Max Pacioretty leads Vegas with 18 goals, Mark Stone has 29 assists and Jonathan Marchessault has 112 shots on goal.

Robin Lehner has given up 22 goals on 271 shots faced and Marc-Andre Fleury has given up 55 goals on 724 shots.
The St. Louis Blues need a win here to snap a seven-game losing streak. The St. Louis Blues are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 18.2 percent of their power play opportunities. Ryan O’Reilly leads St. Louis with 13 goals, David Perron has 24 assists and Torey Krug has 85 shots on goal.

The Golden Knights are 5-2 in their last 7 road games and 48-22 in their last 70 overall. The Blues are 7-19 in their last 26 home games and 2-12 in their last 14 overall. The under is 4-1 in Golden Knights last 5 overall. The under is 5-1 in Blues last 6 overall. The Golden Knights are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in St. Louis and 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. The favorite is 12-2 in the last 14 meetings. The road team is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
The Vegas Golden Knights have cooled off over the last week or so, but they're still money in the favorite role dating back to last season and they usually win the games they're supposed to win. The St. Louis Blues are more talented than what they've shown, but eventually they need to cash some tickets before you can back them with confidence. The Blues are on the struggle bus right now and they've lost four of the five meetings against the Golden Knights this season. This price could be a lot steeper than what it is. Give me the Vegas Golden Knights.
