NHL FREE PICK: Take St. Louis. According to latest NHL trends, the Stars are 1-4 in their last five games versus the Central and 1-4 in their last five games playing on one day of rest. They're also 2-7 in their last nine games overall and 1-5 in their last six games after scoring two goals or less in their previous contest. The Blues, meanwhile, are 13-3 in their last 16 Saturday games, 4-0 in their last four games in the fourth game of a 4-in-6 situation, and 36-16 in their last 52 games playing on one day of rest. Vladimir Tarasenko has given St. Louis' offense quite a boost and T.J. Oshie is also off to a red-hot start. With Jaroslav Halak back in goal following a shut out of the Predators on Thursday, the Blues should notch another victory tonight.
