St. Louis Blues (13-5-1 SU, 10-9 O-U)
vs Edmonton Oilers (7-9-2 SU, 8-10 O-U)

When: Thursday, Nov. 16th, 9:00 PM ET

Line: STL +105 / EDM -125

Total: 5.5

The Oilers host the Blues on Thursday night at Rogers Place. St. Louis, one of the hottest teams in hockey entering last week, has suffered a couple defeats. Edmonton ended a four-game road trip with two losses, but they dropped Vegas in a blowout. They’ve won four consecutive meetings against St. Louis.

Tarasenko leads team with two goals, but Blues fall short

St. Louis’ defense has hit a significant snag against the New York Islanders and Calgary in their last two games. They’ve given up 12 goals in the defeats and the final score against the Flames was a 7-4 shootout. Both teams had it tied up at 2-2 after the first period. Calgary took a 3-2 lead five minutes into the third period, and then the gloves went off with a back-and-fort flurry of six goals in the last eight minutes. The Flames ended up scoring the final three goals to pull away.

The Blues registered just 24 shots on goal compared to the Flames’ 37. Goaltender Jake Allen (9-5-1) has given up 10 of the 12 total goals over the last two losses and had a 83.3 save percentage against Calgary. It’s not confirmed, but Allen is expected to be between the pipes in this contest. Right wing Vladimir Tarasenko had two goals in the last win and now has 22 points this season (10 goals, 12 assists).

Oilers keep Knights’ woes on the road in tact with six-goal blowout

Edmonton embarrassed Vegas 8-2 as the expansion team continues to struggle playing on the road. The Oilers had a 4-0 lead midway through the second period before the Knights were able to get on the board. Vegas owned the faceoff win differential 40-23, but it didn’t matter by a long shot in this one. Edmonton his 25.8 percent of their 31 shots on goal and went 4-for-7 alone in the third period for a stunning display of offense.

No one ended up with a hat trick for the Oilers, but a couple players had two goals. Center Connor McDavid had two goals and an assist to finish with three points, and he now has nine points in his last seven games (4 goals). Ryan Nugent-Hopkins was the other player to hit two goals. Goaltender Cam Talbot (7-8-1) is expected to be starting in this contest. He recorded a 91.7 save percentage in the last win.

Trends

Blues are:

  • 8-2 in their last 10 games on Thursday
  • 8-3 in their last 11 games against Pacific opponents

Oilers are:

  • 1-7 in their last 8 games after a win
  • 4-11 in their last 15 home games against teams with a winning road record

Edmonton struggles to find consistency this season dropping multiple games after getting a win. Don’t expect St. Louis to hit three consecutive losses.

Pick: STL +105
