Toronto Maple Leafs vs St. Louis Blues prediction

The Toronto Maple Leafs are probably the more talented team, and they just smacked the Blues a few days ago by a score of 4-1. The Leafs should be favored. However, the St. Louis Blues have played some of their best hockey over the last two weeks, and they’ve been extremely profitable during this stretch. The Blues are also 16-10-1 on their home ice, and this is a weird early start for a weekday game, which usually favors the home team. I’ll take a stab with the Blues and the plus money.
