The under is also 13-2-2 in the Blues’ last 17 games overall, 10-3-4 in their last 17 games on Friday, and 5-0-1 in their last six games when their opponent allows two goals or fewer in their previous game. On the other side, the under is 7-2 in the Stars’ last nine games playing on zero days of rest. When picked the under in the Blues’ game yesterday and they beat the Coyotes 2-1 in a shootout. With how well Brian Elliott has played in net and how few goals St. Louis has scored of late, we’re going right back to the same well.
