NHL FREE PICK: Take the under. According to latest NHL trends, the under is 5-0-1 in the last six meetings between these two teams and 13-3-6 in the Blues' last 22 Saturday games. The under is also 19-4-5 in the Red Wings' last 28 games versus the Central Division and 4-0-4 in their last eight games versus the Western Conference. Both of these teams have solid goaltending situations, especially the Blues with Jaroslav Halak and Brian Elliott. With the lockout causing teams to have a shortened training camp, look for scores to be down across the league until players can get their legs under them. St. Louis wasn't a very good offensive team last year and despite adding Vladimir Tarasenko to this year's roster, the Blues are likely to struggle again scoring a lot of points. But their defense and goaltending will be solid again this season, so look for this game to be a low-scoring affair.
