St. Louis Blues
St. Louis created at the start of the season a huge groundwork, so even a failed winter series did not prevent to sit on the first line of the Western Conference with 74 points. Not so long ago, the Bluesmen were defeated in a shootout against Vegas (5-6, OT), although led in two pucks.
However, Berube’s team is at risk of losing the lead. They still lead the Western Conference standings, but Colorado Evelanche is breathing down their back, the difference between them is only 2 points. St. Louis suffered 9 defeats in 11 extreme confrontations. St. Louis lost four of the last five games. On the road in the last five games also four defeats, three of which are in regular time; in four games in a row four pucks and more, missing in the each match.
Based on this, we can conclude that the current game form of the western leader is far from ideal. However, we should not forget that they had a difficult schedule, and most of the matches St. Louis lost in a tough struggle.
The Predators are in the ninth place in the Western Conference standings. Only one point separates them from the play-off zone. It’s worth noting that throughout the season they show a very insecure game, they can’t stabilize their results in any way, alternating victories with defeats. At the moment, they have a winning streak of two games.
The main problem of the Nashville team is that they are conceding as many goals as they are scoring. It doesn’t have a lot of high-class performers in the attack, all the emphasis is on the team play, and it manages to make ridiculous mistakes in defense.
However, Nashville proved to show good results in their last match against the Islanders, beating them 5-0. In the last five games the “predators” lost in two. In their arena the index is a bit worse – they lost in three games, and in the main time; in four games they scored two pucks or more. In the Central Division, they are in the 4th place with 63 points.

Blues vs Predators Prediction
The second goalkeeper who took part in St. Louis yesterday’s game against Nashville can not boast stable results, so it is no surprise that he conceded 4 pucks. In the upcoming meeting the Bluesmen will play with Jordan Binnington, so their chances of winning increase. Of course, Nashville has a similar situation, only their main goalkeeper plays much better than the reserve, no matter how paradoxical it may sound.
St Louis has always been known for their good away game, but they are now in a slight decline. Despite all this, I think they’ll be able to take revenge, as the Predators have an extremely vulnerable defense.
Our prediction: St. Louis Blues will win.
