Nashville Predators vs St. Louis Blues 01/17/2022 Betting Odds:
After losing badly against the Sabres last Thursday, the Predators then absorbed a painful 4-3 defeat in OT against the Boston Bruins. The back-to-back losses came after Nashville recorded five straight wins that appeared to be cushion for the team at the top of the Central Division. Things have suddenly shifted away from what they had wanted, but the team has no other choice but to simply bounce back and regain their lethal form. The Predators will play the Blues on Monday in St. Louis before heading back home for the second of a back-to-back. Pegged as slight underdogs against the Blues, the Predators now carry a bigger chip on their shoulders as they aim to get back on the winning track.
Players to watch: R. Josi D (G 13, A 26, PTS 39), M. Duchene C (G 17, A 17, PTS 34), M. Granlund C (G 5, A 28, PTS 33).
St. Louis Blues
The Blues have been terrific inside the Enterprise Center this season. But Saturday’s showing appeared to be an exemption. While St. Louis was able to trade blows against the Maple Leafs, the team still fell short as they saw their win streak end at four and absorb a second loss in seven games. The Blues have no other plans rather than to end their homestand on a high note, and playing against the Predators gives them all the motivation to put up their A-game on Monday. St. Louis and Predators are among the top teams in the Central Division with the former just trailing Nashville by two points in the win-loss ladder.
Players to watch: J. Kyrou C (G 14, A 25, PTS 39), P. Buchnevich LW (G 14, A 21, PTS 35), V. Tarasenko RW (G 14, A 20, PTS 34).
