Bruins vs. Blues Prediction

I’m going to take a shot on the Blues here. The Bruins keep getting close but no cigar, and while it wouldn’t shock anyone if they came through with a win, close but no cigar doesn’t get you paid unless you’re on the other side. The Blues have quietly won 6 of their last 9 games and are at home where they play their better hockey. I think the value is on St. Louis in this game. Give me the Blues and the plus money.
