Detroit Red Wings at St. Louis Blues (-150, 5)

The Blues will start Brian Elliott in goal on Wednesday, posing a daunting challenge to the Red Wings. Elliott has not allowed a regulation goal in his last three starts. He leads the league in save percentage (.943), goals-against average (1.48) and is second in shutouts (nine).

After a sloppy 5-2 loss to Columbus on Saturday, coach Ken Hitchcock intensified practice with two separate sessions on Monday.

“It was much longer than usual, but for good reason and to jump-start us back on track,” said Blues captain David Backes, who leads the team with 54 points. “I think it was good work by everyone and hopefully it has its effect.”

St. Louis is an incredible 30-5-4 at home, while the Red Wings are 16-21-3 on the road. The Blues need to win to keep their hopes alive for the Presidents’ Trophy.

Pick: Blues

Tampa Bay Lightning at Montreal Canadiens (NA)

Steven Stamkos and 42-year old goalie Dwayne Roloson are making the Lightning’s final stretch of the season interesting.

Stamkos is two goals away from becoming the second player in 16 years to reach 60 in a season. Roloson has won four of six, including triumphs over the Philadelphia Flyers and the Washington Capitals. He’s averaging 32.5 saves in those six starts, with a .907 save percentage.

Montreal has dropped four straight and seven of eight.

Goalie Carey Price reportedly is suffering from headaches and is likely to miss the final three games. The Canadiens have mustered just six goals in their last four games, and are a pathetic 3 of 34 on the power play over the last 10 games.

The Canadiens are 3-7 in their last 10 home games, while the Lightning is 5-2 in its last seven overall.

Pick: Lightning
