St. Louis Blues vs. Chicago Blackhawks
The Blues were manhandled at home by the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday but I expect them to get back on track on Sunday. The Blues have still won 13 of 18. Meanwhile, the Blackhawks are without Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews, and have been a very mediocre team in 2014. Even though they’ve won two straight, they are still just 16-19 in their last 35 games. The Blues have won three of four meetings this season and I’ll take them with my NHL picks on Sunday as I expect them to handle the Blackhawks once more.
Pick: Blues -190 at 5Dimes
Buffalo Sabres vs. Philadelphia Flyers
The Flyers are in a slump with losses in six of their last seven, but they should be able to snap out of it with the Sabres visit on Sunday. The Flyers are going from playing the best team in the league on Saturday to the worst on Sunday. That should make their lives easier.
They have dominated this series as they’ve won four straight in Philadelphia and seven of the last nine meetings overall. I’ll take a shot with them on the puck line.
Pick: Flyers -1.5 +115 at Bodog
Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Colorado Avalanche
The Avs are on a roll right now as they’ve won six straight. What’s more impressive is that they’ve scored at least three goals in each of those wins. On Sunday, they’ll be hosting a Pens team that could be a tad road weary as it will be their fifth game in eight nights. The Avs are 22-10 when at home with a total of 5.5 and 21-10 in non-conference games. Listed with a cheap price tag, I’ll take them with my NHL picks.
Pick: Avalanche -115 at Pinnacle
