    A 4-0 W on the road, the Blues look to be for real, Arizona is missing some players but had just won @ LV and against Dallas, so a dominant shutout win on the road is a legit indication.

    The Blues clearly outplayed the Coyotes in most every phase of the game.

    I think it will be wise to play them the next several games even though most are on the road... but I think they have a back to back situation and Allen will probably be in goal and that is risky so that one is TBD.

    I like wildcard-motivated hungry teams, especially at home, so tonight Minny -1.5 versus a weary reeling NJ team is a big opportunity, and Buffalo & Carolina both, in regulation -1/2, are smaller moves for me.

    GL!

    I put a little on the Blues today -115, though Colorado will be playing all out.

    Blues still need a win, were impressive again in AZ, so I will ride them again.

    I cannot see going with them back to back on the road tomorrow in Minnesota, though, Minny has a day of rest and will be angry about their collapse last night (up 4-1, lost 5-4 in OT WTF?). Blues will be tired and probably have Allen in goal, so I will pass tomorrow.

    Well, they smothered Colorado 3-0, two shutout road wins in a row vs legitimate playoff contenders. The Blues continue to play solid all around hockey.
    I did not know about Allen starting, I was out and about today, had assumed Binnington would start, but fortunately Allen played well.
    Tomorrow, with Binnington, now, I might go with the Blues again even in the back to back road situation against a better rested team. Minny coming off a loss, wondering what happened to them, they blew a 4-1 lead to a bad team, lost 5-4 last night.

    Allen played extremely well today. Was waiting for the wheels to fall off, but shame on me for being such a pessimist. 9 in a row!!

    I wouldn't bet against them until they lose. That's if they do lose another game. The way they are playing they may run the table!

    IMO anyone who has been riding this streak with Serbone should keep on it regardless of who they are playing or whatever. No point in fading the streak now or stopping since you have a guaranteed profit even if you lose today. GL

    Here's a way to play the Minnesota / St. Louis game today. Minnesota is likely seething after allowing the Devils to beat them in overtime at home the other night. They've had a couple of days to simmer on that loss where New Jersey scored the final 3 goals in the game. Look for them to come out smoking this afternoon versus a team who played yesterday and had to travel from Colorado to Minnesota last night. I like the Wild to win the first period (-1/2 goal +175). The Blues are the better and hotter team and may wear down the Wild over the rest of the game. But I'll take my chances at nice odds that Minnesota gets an early jump in this game.

    Yes I have been on them every game, even after my initial 5 game initiative, riding them till they lose 2 in a row.

    But I am cautious in recommending them at this point because 1) Vegas/juice has caught up with them and, 2) today, they are playing back to back road games against a better rested, solid playoff contender coming off a bad loss... worried the Blues will falter in the 3rd.

    Nevertheless, they are hot, so today I am going with them, ML +100, even though it is a tough spot... Binnington is scheduled to be back in goal.

    GL!

    This team is Solid! Even tough the Wild are not that good of a NHL team, the Blues still took this game seriously and have taken control early. These Blues look strong.

    I am hearing good things about them that does not sound like "just" the usual positive narrative BS.

    They totally outplayed Columbus on the road the other night, IMO enough to have won by 3-4 goals. Got the loose pucks, forechecked relentlessly, far out shot them significantly, hit hard, word is they have jelled and see opportunity. Earlier in the year they were a clustershtook.

    Especially when Binnington is in goal, I am going with them next 5 games or so, expect to do well.

    Yesterday, 4-0, another impressive win, a back to back road game against a better rested, playoff caliber team... and Minny was coming off an embarrassing loss and was on high alert, needed the win.

    The Blues are for real.

    Solid.

    Mostly the same players, but a different team, a different system, a different attitude. It is not just Binnington, nope, the whole team attacks on offense, prevents odd man rushes on defense that helps keep pressure off the goalie... Allen had a road shutout in Colorado Saturday. They backcheck, forecheck, get the loose pucks, sometimes look like they are on a power play when they are not...

    Tarasenko is being allowed to be himself (shoot!), and O'Reilly, others are all playing well.

    Not sure how far they will go, but I will ride them until they lose two in a row, and then be selective.

    GL!
