It’s the final two weeks of the regular season and the Central division clash between St Louis Blues and Nashville Predators might have a potential playoff impact, especially for the Preds, who are holding on to the play-offs spot at the moment, but risk falling down after any loss.
The Preds are struggling to find their best form: the lack of goals scored in the last matches led to few losses and they need to recover as soon as possible. But the NHL table is so packed, that just a couple of wins could already change the situation dramatically. A match at home could be a good chance to grab a desired win.
St Louis Blues
The Blues are in fantastic shape, finding the net at least 4 times in each of their last 10 matches. And their great potential in attack matches strong performance in defense. The team is feeling comfortable in the leading group and even though their play-off spot is not yet reserved, St Louis looks like a no-doubt contender for the trophy.
Expert Betting Tips
The teams have already faced each other twice in 2022 and both times the Blues went ahead: 5:3 and 7:4 were the final scores. Robert Thomas has 9 assists and Vladimir Tarasenko scored 6 times in the last 5 matches of St Louis, so it will be a duo to watch after. Predators’ hopes are linked to their goalie, Juuse Saros, who has an impressive .921 SV% and might play a key role in neutralizing Blues’ attacks.
