Maple Leafs shut out at Coyotes
Toronto could not muster a goal Saturday night at Arizona in a 2-0 loss that dropped it to 36-19-3 on the season. The Coyotes scored both of their goals in the second period and held on from there. The Maple Leafs registered 22 shots on both with Nazem Kadri and Auston Matthews leading the way with four shots each. Frederik Andersen took the loss in net as he surrendered two goals on 29 shots.
Blues claim 10th straight win
St. Louis downed host Minnesota by a count of 4-0 Sunday afternoon to keep its winning streak going and improve to 31-22-5 on the season. It was the third straight victory by shutout for the Blues. Vladimir Tarasenko opened the scoring 5:08 in on the power play as he was assisted by Ryan O'Reilly and Robert Thomas. O'Reilly scored on the power play with 30 seconds left in the first period to make it 2-0 as Tarasenko and Alex Pietrangelo assisted. Vince Dunn made it 3-0 in the second on a goal assisted by Pietrangelo and Brayden Schenn. Schenn completed the scoring with 7:54 remaining in the second with an assist going to Tarasenko. Jordan Binnington recorded the shutout win as he stopped all 31 shots sent his way.
NHL Betting Trends
The Maple Leafs are 7-0 in their last seven Tuesday games. Toronto is 6-2 in its last eight games overall.
The Blues are 5-0 in their last five games during the last game of a 4-in-6 situation. St. Louis is 6-0 in its last six games as a favorite.
St. Louis is playing with a ton of confidence and is getting great goaltending right now from Binnington plus Jake Allen. It's a hard team to fade right now and even though the Maple Leafs have been strong offensively this season, I don't see them having a great showing here one game after being shut out by the struggling Coyotes.
