Expert Picks: Available Here!

Preview: The top team in the Western Conference will head to the Scottrade Center on Monday night for a tilt in the National Hockey League.

The Canucks hold a 36-11-9 record, for 83 points. They sit 9 points ahead of Detroit in the Western Conference, and 4 ahead of the Flyers for the best overall record. Vancouver is 7-1-2 in their last ten games. When playing on the road this season, the Canucks have won 16, lost 7 and lost in 4 overtime decisions. The Canucks are coming off a 4-2 win at home over Calgary. The Canucks are led in scoring by Daniel Sedin. The left wing has 73 total points, but does not lead the team in goals or assists. Vancouver ranks as the top offensive team in the league, scoring 3.4 goals per game, and also the top defensive team, allowing 2.3 goals per game. The Canucks are also the top power play team in the league. They score on 25% of their chances with an extra skater.

The Blues come into the game desperate for wins. St. Louis is currently 13th in the Western Conference with 57 points. Minnesota is in the 8th spot with 65. The Blues lost two straight to the Wild over the weekend to hurt their chances even further. St. Louis has been better at home than on the road. The Blues are 16-8-4 at home and 8-13-5 on the road. St. Louis has been banged up all season, but have gotten solid production from David Backes with 20 goals and 21 assists.

My Betting Predictions: St. Louis will play with a lot of energy and come away with a 3-2 overtime win over the Canucks.
