Blues vs Oilers: Game Day Preview and NHL Wagering Lines
In a fierce fight for NHL playoff positioning, St. Louis enters tonight’s contest tied with Dallas in the Central Division standings. What’s more, the Blues are also in a five-team race for first overall in the Western Conference. Apart from their meltdown versus the Flames, St. Louis is on a roll in March as they have posted a 5-1 record this month – outscoring their opponents by a 21-13 margin.
Not of the playoff variety, Edmonton is in a fight of their own as they are “battling” the Toronto Maple Leafs for the NHL basement and the best shot in the 2016 Draft Lottery. It’s a position the Oilers are familiar with given they’ve had the first pick in the NHL draft in four of the last six years. Edmonton has been up and down recently as the Oilers are 4-4-0 during their last eight contests.
