Vladimir Tarasenko St. Louis Blues NHL

The St. Louis Blues are suddenly the hottest team in the NHL and take a four-game winning streak into Friday’s contest with the Anaheim Ducks in a potential Western Conference playoff matchup.

Shark Bites

  • Three of the last four Blues games have been OVER 5 goals.
  • The Ducks are 6-1 SU in their last seven games on the road.

Online shop Bovada presently has the Blues as slight -120 favorites in moneyline markets while the Ducks are -110. The total is tabbed at 5 with OVER priced at -110 and UNDER at -120.

The Blues’ four-game streak is the longest current run in the NHL and that surge has them right in the thick of the race in the Central Division. The Blues are just one point back of both the Chicago Blackhawks and Dallas Stars, who play in Texas Friday night.

The Ducks have followed an 11-game winning streak with a two-game losing skid and have dropped out of first place in the Pacific Division. Anaheim is coming off a 3-0 shutout courtesy of the Colorado Avalanche in its last effort and is a middling 7-7-2 versus the Central Division this season.

The pair have met once already this season with the Ducks skating to a 4-3 victory back on January 8 on home ice.
