Bruins (+100) at Blues (-120)
Pick: Bruins +100
Pick: Charlie Coyle to score +390
The Stanley Cup will be in the house tonight in St. Louis as the Blues look to seal the deal against Boston in what’s been an extremely back-and-forth series. Last game, the Blues managed to score the game-winning goal after a blatant missed call by the referees on what should have been a two-minute tripping minor. They got lucky, but everyone noticed. The Bruins are going to come out hard tonight in an effort to save their season and they will no doubt hold a grudge for how they lost previously. We think it’s a safe bet to take them on the road here. The price will be good and we really think this ones going seven games after watching these two clubs duke it out these past two weeks.
Some players to watch would again be Zdeno Chara, who played last game with a broken jaw and was unable to open his mouth. He’s a true workhorse for the B’s and deserves a lot of respect but he was obviously not playing like himself due to his injury. Another Bruin to keep your eye on is F Charlie Coyle. The Boston native was traded from the Wild at the deadline this year and has been an excellent third-line center for the club. Look for him to get it done for Boston tonight.
