The Anaheim Ducks and the St. Louis Blues meet in NHL action from the Enterprise Center on Monday night.

The Anaheim Ducks will look to build on a 6-2 win over the Kings in their last game. Max Comtois leads the Ducks in scoring with 30 points including a team-high 14 goals and 16 assists while Rickard Rakell has 26 points with 18 assists. Cam Fowler’s on 22 points with 17 assists while Adam Henrique has 11 goals and Troy Terry has 18 points with 11 assists. As a team, Anaheim is averaging 2.1 goals on 26.8 shots with a 9.5% success rate on the power play while allowing 3.2 goals on 30.7 shots with an 80.1% success rate on the PK this season.

The St. Louis Blues will look to bounce back from a 4-3 loss to Minnesota last time out. David Perron leads the Blues in scoring with 49 points including a team-high 34 assists while Ryan O’Reilly is right behind with 48 points including a team-high 22 goals with 26 assists. Mike Hoffman has 32 points with 16 goals and 16 assists while Brayden Schenn and Jordan Kyrou each have 31 points with double-digit goal and assist marks this season. Torey Krug also has 28 assists for the Blues this season.

Anaheim is 16-37 in their last 53 games overall and 3-8 in their last 11 games as a road underdog while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games following a win. St. Louis is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall and 5-2 in their last 7 home games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games on one days rest. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.

I get the case that you could make for both teams here, especially St. Louis who have been on a tear lately and are making a serious push to lock up the last playoff spot. However, this feels like a one goal game either way as St. Louis will probably win by any means necessary if they do and this could be a game that ends up going to overtime. Either way, I see this as a game where the +1.5 with Anaheim on the road could come in handy, especially with how well the Ducks have performed against the puck line away from home this season.
