Blues (+115) at SHARKS (-135) (5.5)
Pick: Sharks -135
Pick: Over 5.5
Since being embarassed, 5-0, by Vegas in Game 4 of their first-round series, San Jose has won eight of its last 11 games and even managed three goals in two of the losses. Hard not to like the Sharks at home again after touching Jordan Binnington for more goals in Game 1 (five) than he had allowed in his previous three games combined (four) . . . The Blues have yet to score more than four goals in any game this postseason. San Jose has done so five times . . . By the way, Logan Couture hadn’t scored a goal against St. Louis in their previous five meetings but rang the bell twice in the opener and is the only player with double-digit tallies (11) in these playoffs . . . The price (-135) and the O/U (5.5) both seem very attainable here.
