The St. Louis Blues welcome the Vancouver Canucks to town for a Sunday NHL matchup.
The Vancouver Canucks have been struggling but the team rose to the occasion to upset visiting Nashville 5-3 on Thursday. Ryan Hartman, Colton Sissons and Matt Irwin lit the lamp for the Predators. Yannick Webber assisted twice for Nashville who saw Pekka Rinne allow four goals on 25 shots before Juuse Saros stopped 4-5 shots in relief.
The balanced Canucks saw scoring off the sticks of Alexander Edler, Bo Horvat, Jake Virtanen, Elias Pettersson and Loui Eriksson. Antoine Roussel gave Vancouver three assists and Jacob Markstrom picked up the win with 26 saves.
The St. Louis Blues are shooting for back to back wins after downing the Winnipeg Jets 1-0 on Friday night on the road. The Jets #9 offense that entered the game was shutdown and Connor Hellebuyck absorbed the loss with a goal scoring on 27 shots.
The Blues received a second period tally off the stick of Colton Parayko with Brayden Schenn and David Perron. Jake Allen brushed aside all 26 Winnipeg shots to earn his first shutout of the season.
Over is 5-0-1 in Canucks last 6 when their opponent scores 2 goals or less in their previous game and Canucks are 1-7 in their last 8 games playing on 2 days rest and under is 5-1 in Canucks last 6 Sunday games. Blues are 0-4 in their last 4 games following a win and Blues are 0-4 in their last 4 vs. Pacific and under is 9-1 in Blues last 10 after scoring 2 goals or less in their previous game. Canucks are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in St. Louis and Canucks are 0-5 in the last 5 meetings and under is 8-1-3 in the last 12 meetings in St. Louis.
Neither team has been doing much winning so something small on the under...
