The Carolina Hurricanes and the St. Louis Blues meet in NHL action from the Enterprise Center on Thursday night.

The Carolina Hurricanes will look to build on back-to-back wins after a 3-2 OT win over Pittsburgh last time out. Martin Necas has a team-high 25 points with 11 goals and a team-high 14 assists while Sebastian Aho also has 16 assists along with 9 goals as part of his 25 points. Andrei Svechnikov also has 24 points with a team-high 14 goals this season. Frederik Andersen has gone 5-3 with a 2.72 GAA and an .891 save percentage while Antti Raanta is 4-2-2 with a 2.47 GAA and a .901 save percentage in goal for Carolina so far this season.

The St. Louis Blues will try to bounce back from a 4-1 loss to the Dallas Stars in their last game. Robert Thomas has a team-high 19 points with 4 goals and 15 assists. Jordan Kyrou has 18 points split between 9 goals and 9 assists and Brayden Schenn has 17 points with 6 goals and 11 assists. Pavel Buchnevich also has 16 points with 10 assists this season. Jordan Binnington’s seen the action in goal for St. Louis up to this point in the season with a record of 9-8 along with a 3.05 GAA and a .900 save percentage this season.

Carolina is 2-5 in their last 7 games overall and 2-5 in their last 7 road games while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games following a win. St. Louis is 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 8-3 in their last 11 games overall while the over is 9-1-1 in their last 11 games against the Metropolitan division.

I get the reasoning for backing either side in this game, but truthfully, I like the under here. Both teams have been finding themselves in a lot of lower-scoring games as of late and I just view this as a game where the goaltending shines and this ends up being the first to 3 wins. Give me the under.
