Monday Prediction

Look for Blues to end three game skid at home against Phoenix

The Pick: St. Louis -145 over Phoenix

It's still only early January, but in the Western Conference every point matters and both these teams are on the outside looking in and only separated by one mere point. Although St. Louis has struggled recently, this is their last home game before a three game California trip, and they're starting to get injured players back in the lineup. This should be a close low scoring game, and we like the goalie matchup of Jaroslav Halak for the Blues against Illya Bryzgalov, who is making his first start in the last three games because of injuries. The Blues were outworked by the Rangers on Saturday night at home, which is rare since St.Louis is 14-6-2 at home. Look for them to rebound against an inconsistent Phoenix team.
