Anaheim Ducks vs St. Louis Blues 03/28/2021 – Friday’s turnout was the latest to the piling woes being experienced by the St. Louis Blues. The team absorbed its third straight loss as the Anaheim Ducks cruised through a stunning 4-1 upset win at the Enterprise Center in Missouri. The continuous struggles from the 2019 Stanley Cup champs have turned what was a secure position in the West into a perilous state approaching the more crucial stages of the regular season.

Best gambling websites for NHL believe the Blues are due for a huge comeback win judging from the -250 price for the hosts in the match-winner market.

Anaheim Ducks vs St. Louis Blues 03/28/2021 Betting Odds:
Winning on the road is impressive, but winning in a lopsided fashion while being the bottom team in the division is on another scale. The Anaheim Ducks did just that as they trounced the reeling Blues, 4-1, on the latter’s home ice on Friday. Beaming with confidence, the team will target a clean sweep of the two-game series on Sunday afternoon. But while it is laudable, the latest win counts just the same as a regular win. In other words, they remain as cellar-dwellers in the West unless they establish an extended surge in wins. They already got the Blues on the ropes and all they have to do is take advantage of it. They may have a better stance, but they also need to keep their defense up, especially that the Blues are eager to bounceback.
Players to watch: R. Rakell C (G 6, A 15, PTS 21), M. Comtois LW (G 10, A 10, PTS 20), A. Henrique C (G 9, A 6, PTS 15).
St. Louis Blues
Playing inside their own home ice has not been friendly for the St. Louis Blues this season, and Friday’s finish perhaps was the ultimate epitome of such a struggle. They are 4-8-3 at the Enterprise Center so far, which is quite unacceptable for the type of caliber the team has. The team has managed to keep themselves above the playoff line, but it’s obvious that their spot right now is in serious jeopardy. The Arizona Coyotes, who are at the fifth spot, have already tied them in points with 37 and are on pace to barge into the top four riding a current winning streak. It’s time for the Blues to regroup and figure things out immediately before they fall into more serious trouble.
Players to watch: D. Perron LW (G 12, A 21, PTS 33), R. O’Reilly C (G 10, A 21, PTS 31), B. Schenn C (G 12, A 12, PTS 24).
