Anderson to start for struggling Senators

According to Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, Craig Anderson will get the start in net for the Ottawa Senators as they continue their road trip at the Winnipeg Jets Saturday.

This will be Anderson's fourth consecutive start and the veteran goaltender has given up nine goals on 89 shots en route to a 1-2 record in those three games.

The struggling Sens - who are on life support in the playoff picture - are currently +107 road dogs at Winnipeg.


Blues have not liked playing a mile high

The St. Louis Blues have been one of the best teams in the NHL on the road this season, but trips to Colorado have not agreed with them in the past.

The Blues has a dismal 7-24-4 record against the Avalanche in Colorado. Adding to that, in the past 30 contests between these two teams, the home team is a stellar 22-8.

St. Louis will be -115 road favs when they take on Colorado (+106) Saturday.


Blue Jackets have been terrible in Music City

The Blue Jackets must get distracted by all the sights in Nashville because they don't show up on the ice. In the past 35 games between the Blue Jackets and Predators at the Bridgestone Arena, Columbus is 5-29-1.

When these two teams met earlier this season, in Columbus, the Blue Jackets got bounced 4-0. Columbus is currently 9th in the East and only two point behind idle Detroit for the final playoff spot.

The Blue Jackets (+104) will visit the Preds (-113) Saturday.


Halak to make debut for Capitals Saturday


According to Sky Kerstein of 106.7 The Fan, Washington Capitals head coach Adam Oates confirms that newly-acquired Jaroslav Halak will make his debut between the pipes as the Caps host the Phoenix Coyotes Saturday.

Halak has started twice versus the 'Yotes this season, winning one and losing one in overtime, but owns a 1.98 GAA and .900 save percentage versus Phoenix this season.

The Capitals are currently -118 home faves for the Saturday evening game.

Blues at Avalanche: What Bettors Need to Know
By Covers.com

St. Louis Blues at Colorado Avalanche (+105, 5.5)

Two of the hottest teams in the Central Division square off on Saturday when the Colorado Avalanche host the St. Louis Blues. The Avalanche are opening a four-game homestand with a chance for their fifth consecutive victory, while St. Louis has looked air-tight in its first three contests with Ryan Miller in net. Only three points separate Colorado from the division-leading Blues, who are a dominant 16-0-1 against divisional opponents.

St. Louis claimed the first two contests of a four-game season series against the Avalanche, winning 7-3 at home on Nov. 14 and snapping an eight-game losing skid at Colorado with a 4-1 victory on Nov. 27. The Avalanche are surrendering an average of over 37 shots on their winning streak, meaning netminders Semyon Varlamov and Jean-Sebastien Giguere will need to remain in top form for it to continue. By contrast, the Blues have surrendered just 63 shots over their first three contests in March.

ABOUT THE BLUES (42-14-6): Miller has stopped 58 of those 63 shots in the winning streak.. Steve Ott, who arrived with Miller from Buffalo in a trade, is averaging 13:49 of ice time in his first three games with St. Louis - down significantly from his time with the Sabres. Ott is playing on the third line with fellow veterans Derek Roy and Brenden Morrow, who will be counted on to provide leadership and stability during the playoffs.

ABOUT THE AVALANCHE (41-17-5): Nathan MacKinnon continued his incredible rookie season by recording a point in his 13th straight game, breaking Wayne Gretzky’s record for the longest point streak by an 18-year-old. MacKinnon leads all rookies in goals (22) and points (51). Matt Duchene has 10 points on a six-game streak, while Ryan O’Reilly has nine points in his last five.

TRENDS:

* Home team is 22-8 in the last 30 meetings.
* Blues are 5-2 in the last seven meetings.
* Avalanche are 6-0 in their last six vs. Central.
* Over is 14-2 in Blues last 16 Saturday games.

OVERTIME:

1. Blues LW Alexander Steen has 14 goals in 14 games against Central Division foes.

2. G Reto Berra was traded to Colorado from Calgary at the trade deadline, but he has been unable to join his new team due to immigration issues.

3. The Blues and the Avalanche will meet once more to cap their season series: April 5 at St. Louis.
