St. Louis enters the game with a 14-8-4 score (9-3-1 at home), while Montreal are 6-19-3 (2-9-2 away). Blues will be looking to build on the previous two wins they earned in their arena. It is the home ice that is the main thing playing for St. Louis. They are strong at home. Montreal, on the other hand, has been waiting for the feeling of winning for five games.

Both teams have so many injured players that they could put a whole team together. The home team will miss Binnington, Bozak, Faulk, Husso, Kostin, Neal, Perron, Thomas and Walman. Only Robert Thomas is questionable to start after all. He hasn't started the last two games due to a lower body injury. Montreal will miss Anderson, Armia, Byron, Dvorak, Edmundson, Gallagher, Niku, Petry, Price and Toffoli. Of that list, Armia and Dvorak, who are question marks for this game, may be on the ice after all.

* Blues are 6-0 in their last six home games.
* Canadiens are 0-8 in their last eight games after allowing two goals or less in their previous game.
* Canadiens are 0-4 in their last four games after having one day of rest.
* Canadiens are 0-4 in their last four games after their opponents scored five or more goals in their previous game.
* Canadiens are 2-14 in their last 16 away games.

St. Louis vs Montreal (standings)
* goals scored per game: 3.385 (6th) vs. 2.179 (29th)
* goals conceded per game: 2.808 (16th) vs. 3.500 (28th)
* shots on goal per game: 32.77 (13th) vs 29.25 (23rd)
* success shooting percentage: 10.33% (9th) vs 7.45% (30th)
* shot success rate of all goalies: 91.20% (11th) vs 89.40% (27th)

The home team is the favorite, they score goals, have a great power play usage (28%) and defend well. Montreal is one of the worst teams so far this season. Interestingly, Montreal has won the last two games between them, but that was two years ago. The teams haven't played each other since then and we need to watch the game in the present.

My prediction: St.Louis Blues (in regular time) @ 1.74 (bet365)
