St Louis Blues vs Montreal Canadiens predictions

Face-off: 1900 ET, 11/12/2021

Venue: Enterprise Center

St Louis have improved their home record to 9-3-1 with back-to-back victories at Enterprise Center this week and can now see off Montreal.

The Canadiens have gone five games without a win and are 2-9-2 on the road during what has been a very disappointing season so far.

We can’t see past 1.8 for a home success in regular time for the first of our St Louis Blues vs Montreal Canadiens predictions.

St Louis Blues Odds

St Louis followed up a 4-3 overtime defeat of Atlantic Division leaders Florida by brushing aside Detroit 6-2 at this venue.

Nathan Walker netted his first NHL hat-trick as the Blues made it six consecutive home victories on Thursday night.

Marco Scandella had a goal and an assist while Pavel Buchnevich has claimed 18 points in 16 games after another assist.

With nine goals and the same number of assists during his great run, it would take a brave man to bet against Buchnevich getting on the scoreboard once again at NHL odds.

St Louis do have injury and Covid issues but even emergency replacements are doing the business.

That includes goaltender Charlie Lindgren, who could now face his former club.

“It would definitely mean something to me,” Lindgren said. “Obviously, I’m going to treat it like any other game but yeah it means something.”

A fired-up Lindgren makes 3.3 for a home win and under 5.5 goals in the game catch the eye.

Montreal Canadiens Odds

Montreal have been competitive in most of their matches during a 10-game stretch of 2-7-1 and they were a touch unlucky to come up against an inspired Marc-Andre Fleury when losing 2-0 to Chicago.

The Quebec-born goalie made 30 saves as he became the third shot-stopper in NHL history to win 500 games.

That followed an overtime loss in Nashville and a narrow 3-2 defeat by two-time defending Stanley Cup champions Tampa Bay.

“Sometimes in these stretches when you’re not winning, it’s hard to see positives,” said forward Jonathan Drouin. “But I think the last few games there’s some positives there.”

Unfortunately, the Canadiens now appear to be visiting St Louis at just the wrong time, so the barren run is expected to continue.

They are bottom of the Atlantic Division with just 15 points from 28 games and 5.0 for the Blues to win by three goals completes our NHL predictions.
