St. Louis Blues at Boston Bruins Odds

With a -170 moneyline, Boston heads into the game as the obvious favorite. The line for St. Louis sits at +150, and the oddsmakers have set the Over/Under (O/U) at 6 goals. The odds for betting that total stand at -140 for the under and +120 for the over.

Boston is 62-38 straight up (SU) and has netted moneyline bettors 8.5 units this season. That winning percentage, ranked second in the league in this young season, is right in line with the 50-32 record the team produced during last year’s regular season campaign. Out of its 100 regular season contests, 54 of them have gone under the total, while 42 have gone over and just four have pushed. The team’s 36-15 SU at home this year.

After accounting for the third-strongest power-play unit in the regular season (finding net on 27.1 percent of all chances), the Bruins have been able to score on 32.7 percent of their power plays in the postseason.

The Bruins’ offensive skaters attempted 32.9 shots per game in the regular season, resulting in 3.2 goals per contest (ranked 11th overall in the NHL). In the playoffs, the club is attempting an average of 33.8 shots on goal 3.4 goals per game.

With a .921 save percentage and 26.1 saves per game, Tuukka Rask (40-24-6) has been the most dependable goalkeeper for Boston this season. If head coach Bruce Cassidy decides to give him the night off, however, Boston may roll with Jaroslav Halak (22-18-18 record, .922 save percentage, 2.34 goals against average).

Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak will each be focal points for the Bruins. Marchand (119 points) has tallied 44 goals and 75 assists and has recorded two or more points in 37 different games this year. Pastrnak has 45 goals and 51 assists to his name and has recorded at least one point in 53 contests.

Over on the other bench, St. Louis is 57-45 straight up (SU) and has earned moneyline bettors 3.9 units this season. A total of 51 of its games have gone under the total, while 44 have gone over and just seven have pushed. The Blues are 28-23 SU as the away team this season.

The Blues have converted on 20.6 percent of their power play opportunities this year, a figure that’s good enough for eighth-best in the league. On the other hand, its penalty kill unit is ranked ninth overall and it’s successfully killed off 81.0 percent of all opponent power plays.

St. Louis’ players have been called for penalties 3.3 times per game in total this season, 2.8 per game over their past five match ups total, and 3.8 per game over their last five road outings. The team’s had to kill penalties just 6.4 minutes per game over their last 10 outings.

Jordan Binnington (24.5 saves per game) has been the primary choice in goal for St. Louis. Binnington has 36 wins, 16 losses, and three OT losses to his credit, while registering a .922 save percentage and 2.09 goals against average this year.

For the visiting Blues, a lot of the offense will be facilitated through Ryan O’Reilly, who has 60 assists and 31 goals this year.

St. Louis Blues vs. Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins made a loud statement -- psychologically and physically -- that the road to the Stanley Cup must go through them and that standing in their path carries a risk of getting run over. A stirring comeback and thunderous hit right out of "Slap Shot" enabled the Bruins to take a 1-0 series lead into Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals versus the visiting St. Louis Blues on Wednesday night.

It may not rival the iconic image of Bobby Orr flying through the air after scoring the Cup-clinching goal versus St. Louis in 1970, but Bruins defenseman Torey Krug left an indelible mark on Game 1, going airborne after his helmet-less, open-ice thunderous check on Robert Thomas in the third period. "That was pretty cool," Boston forward Brad Marchand said after his team's eighth consecutive win in the postseason. "There's a lot of plays that people look back on in playoffs and talk about for a long time. That will be one of them." While the Blues prefer to look ahead rather than dwell on the series opener, they were manhandled in more ways than Krug's hit, squandering an early two-goal lead and getting outshot 30-12 over the final two periods. "It's not always going to be perfect," rookie netminder Jordan Binnington said after St. Louis fell to 7-3 on the road in the playoffs. "It's Game 1. It's a seven-game series. We're going to regroup and come back at 'em."

TV: 8 p.m. ET, NBC Sports Network, CBC, SN, TVAS LINE: Bruins -1.5

ABOUT THE BLUES: Defenseman Vince Dunn, sidelined since Game 3 of the Western Conference finals after getting hit in the mouth by a shot, practiced for a third straight day Tuesday and could be back in the lineup for Game 2. "Obviously a ton of skill, moves his feet well, skates very well and makes a good first pass and plays power play," center Tyler Bozak said of Dunn, who has seven points in the postseason and scored in two of his previous three games before he was injured. "Obviously it's nice to have the depth we do, and guys can step in when guys get hurt." Binnington, who posted a 24-5-1 mark since he was called up from the minors in early December, is 5-2 in the playoffs following a loss.

ABOUT THE BRUINS: Fourth-line center Sean Kuraly added to his clutch performer reputation by setting up Boston's first goal before scoring his third-game winner of the playoffs. Kuraly, along with linemates Noel Acciari and Joakim Nordstrom, also had to do some heavy lifting defensively when coach Bruce Cassidy matched them up against St. Louis' No. 1 unit after the Blues struck for two goals. "One of the strengths of this team is that we have four lines that can produce at any given time on any given night," forward Marcus Johansson said. "It's not just they scored the goals, I think they led the group to take the game over in to being more physical and I think that is what won us the game."

OVERTIME

1. Bruins captain Zdeno Chara said he was fine after receiving stitches to close a cut sustained in the third period.

2. Blues F Brayden Schenn has scored in back-to-back contests following a 13-game goal drought.

3. Boston has won all nine playoff matchups against St. Louis, which is 0-13 all-time in Stanley Cup play.


PREDICTION: Bruins 3, Blues 2
