Blues are Ice-Cold on Offense

Have the St. Louis Blues finally met their match? Thanks to a pair of lopsided defeats to the San Jose Sharks, the Blues aren’t done yet but find themselves down 2-1 in the Western Conference finals. Game 4 is Saturday night in California.

Shark Bites
  • The Blues are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games after a loss.
  • The Sharks have scored over half of the posted total in six of their last seven games.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Blues' last three games.

The Blues haven’t scored a goal in 7.5 periods and must try and take one in an arena where San Jose has won six in a row in the playoffs, including the past three by an amazing 13-1 margin.

The Blues’ suffering power-play can be attributed to San Jose’s smothering penalty kill. The Sharks have killed off 18 of 19 short-handed situations over the past seven games.

The UNDER continues to be the hot bet in this series, as each West finals game has gone below the closing total so far.
