Online NHL Betting Odds:
San Jose Sharks
Since tonight’s online NHL betting odds are pegging San Jose as the underdog, it’s up to the Sharks to prove them wrong. After all, St. Louis was able to do just that in Game 2 on the road. However, since San Jose is 5-4-1 in their last 10 against the Blues, there’s no telling how this evening’s matchup will turn out. One thing that surprised us in Game 1 was Logan Couture’s eye-catching contribution that led to a loss nevertheless. Couture managed to record his fourth multi-goal performance of this year’s playoffs but couldn’t get San Jose a 2-0 lead in the end. If San Jose is to take the lead on the road this evening, they’ll undoubtedly need an even bigger outing from Couture. Both Games 1 and 2 have gone OVER here so we can fully expect Game 3 to be a high scoring ordeal.
Players to Watch: Logan Couture (13 G, 6 A, 19 PTS.), Brent Burns (5 G, 10 A, 15 PTS.), and Tomas Hertl (9 G, 5 A, 14 PTS.).
St. Louis Blues
The Blues win in Game 2 was massive. But can we count on them picking up Game 3 at home? After all, their power play has been completely absent as of late. In fact, St. Louis failed on all 5 of their power-play attempts in Game 2. Additionally, the team is 1-26 with the man advantage in their past 8 matchups. Granted, it’s clear that the lack of power-play hasn’t crippled them that much. Nevertheless, this is one area St. Louis will want to improve if they are to win this series.
Players to Watch: Jaden Schwartz (9 G, 4 A, 13 PTS.), Alex Pietrangelo (2 G, 10 A, 12 PTS.), and Ryan O’Reilly (3 G, 8 A, 11 PTS.).
