Saturday's NHL Prediction
Sidney Crosby leads his Pittsburgh Penguins to St. Louis on Saturday night as they take on the Blues at 8PM ET.
The Penguins are off to a 5-3-0 start which has put them tied for first in the Atlantic Division. The Penguins have scored 27 goals through eight games, most of any team in the NHL. The Penguins are 3-0-0 on the road this season.
St. Louis is 3-1-2 on the season to sit three points in back of Chicago in the Central Division. The Blues are 3-0-0 at home this season.
Here is a look at the trends and my pick for Saturday’s game.
Pittsburgh Penguins at St. Louis Blues, 8PM ET
Trends favor St. Louis in this game as the home team is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings of this series while the Blues have won 4 of the last 5 games in St. Louis.
The Blues are also 8-0 in their last eight home games and 6-0 in their last six games against the Atlantic Division.
