Odds: 3.4

Vancouver

In the final match of the series, Vancouver won in overtime (5: 4). And in the opening match of the Stanley Cup playoffs, Green's team defeated St. Louis (5:2).

St. Louis

St. Louis have fallen short in the playoffs and have been defeated in all four games. Moreover, the “Musicians” lost to “Chicago” even in the control meeting 0:4. Note that in the previous match with Vancouver everything was going very well until a certain moment and the Blues evened the score in the second period, but completely failed the final twenty minutes and conceded three unanswered goals.

Although Craig Beryube's team had an advantage in shots on target, it did not bring them the desired result. We would like to emphasize that in the regular season the Bluesmen were not very productive, but they won thanks to their good defensive actions. This element is missing in the playoffs.

Vancouver

Vancouver is showing great play, despite the injuries of the players and even managed to deal with Minnesota 3-1 before facing St. Louis. Note that in the series with the “Savages” the team was also considered an outsider, but an excellent attack allowed it to achieve success in three matches.

By the way, Bo Howarth, who scored a double and Pearson scored two assists, became the star in the last meeting with St. Louis. The Canucks do not have a perfect defense, so they try to act as the first number in the opponent's zone and this tactic bears fruit for them. So far, the Musicians have not adapted to Vancouver, so he can take victories into his asset.

Prediction

In our opinion, Vancouver is undeservedly considered an outsider in this series. Due to the fact that he has a good attacking line and the Musicians have huge problems in defense, it is quite possible that the Canucks will succeed again and will do it with more total.

Our bet is Vancouver's victory + total over 3.5 goals for 3.40 in BC 1xBet.
