Columbus Blue Jackets (15-10-1) @ St. Louis Blues (13-9-4)

Date: Thursday December 9th, 2010

Time: 8:00 pm EST

Predicted Score: St. Louis Blues 2-1

Preview: In a big game for both teams, the Columbus Blue Jackets will take on the St. Louis Blues. Both teams are competing for not only the top of the Central Division, but for a playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Blue Jackets have 31 points; third place in the Central Division, while St. Louis has 30, for fourth place. If the postseason started today, Columbus would be tied in sixth, while the Blues would be mixed up with several teams for the 8th and final position. The Blue Jackets are 8-3 when playing on the road, which is the best road record in the Western Conference.

St. Louis, who started the season hot at home, have a 8-2-1 record at home. Columbus has been out scored on the season 71-70, while the Blues have also been out scored 72-67. The Blue Jackets are coming off a 3-2 shoot-out win over the Dallas Stars. Columbus will look to Rick Nash to lead the scoring attack. Nash has 14 goals and 6 assists to lead the team in scoring. The Blues were able to down Vancouver 3-2 on Sunday to snap their losing streak. St. Louis will be without leading scorer Andy McDonald, as he suffered a concussion in the win on Sunday. McDonald has scored 8 goals and passed for 9 assists on the season.

My Betting Picks: In a very low scoring game, St. Louis wins. Blues win 2-1.
