The St. Louis Blues and Pittsburgh Penguins face off on Saturday in an NHL showdown at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh. The Penguins have won the last three games over the Blues. 

The Blues come into this game with an 11-12-0 record, and they have gone 6-6-0 away from home. In the last game against the Carolina Hurricanes, the Blues scored four goals, but the defense gave up six goals, and that led to the defeat. The Blues are averaging 2/87 goals, while their defense is giving up 3.65 goals per game. The defense is ranked 27th in the league, and will need to step up here. Robert Thomas has scored four goals and added 16 assists so far this season. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Penguins, who sit with a 12-8-4 record overall, and they have gone 5-3-2 at home. In the last game against the Vegas Golden Knights, the Penguins scored four goals, and that was enough to win by a goal. Jake Guentzel had another solid game, finishing with one goal and one assist. The Penguins are averaging 3.42 goals per game, while their defense is giving up 3.17 goals per game. The offense is ranked 9th in the league, and they are going to need to put pressure on the Blues defense. Sidney Crosby has scored 12 goals and added 20 assists.

The Blues are 1-4 in their last five games overall. The Penguins are 5-0 in their last five games played on one day of rest. The over is 4-1 in the Blue's last five games. The over is 4-0 in the Blue's last four road games. The Over is 8-2 in Penguin's last 10 when their opponent allows 5 goals or more in their previous game.

The Blues defense has been awful heading into this game, and it’s not going to change in this game. The Penguins are averaging 3.42 goals per game, and they will score four or five goals here. I also expect the Blues offense to find some success off this Penguins defense, and the over is going to cash.
