Tonights NHL Picks December 3rd 2014

1-1 last night. Our pick on the over was an easy winner with 8 goals, while the Red Wings couldn’t manage to defeat the Panthers that were playing on no rest after losing to Columbus. Wow.
A quiet night in the League tonight with four games, we have one of our own plus a system pick again tonight. Great odds on the Habs; the line opened at 2.18 and is now at 2.27.
St. Louis Blues @ Chicago Blackhawks: OVER 5 Goals 1.75
Risk: 2 Units | Win: 1.50 Units
Two of the Central Divisions finest meet for the 2nd time this season, this time in Chicago. The Blues won the first meeting at Home 3-2, a push on 5 goals. The Blackhawks are 8th overall for scoring with 2.96 goals per game. Over their last 10 games, the Blackhawks have scored an average of 3.70 goals per game, while allowing 2.20 goals against per game.  Chicago has won three in a row, each game ended with a five goal total. Each of the last 10 Blackhawks games have either gone over five goals, or have ended with five goal totals, so there is always the possibility for a push. The story is quite similar for the Blues, as they’ve had all but one of their last 10 games end with a five goal total, exceeded a five goal total. The Blues have scored 3.00 goals per game over their last 10 games, while allowing 2.20 goals against per game. The Blues have the 5th place power play unit that is successful 22.9% of the time, however their penalty kill unit ranks just 21st overall at 79.2%. Chicago is ranked 15th on the man advantage with a 19.2 PP%. St. Louis is ranked 8th in penalty minutes with 256, while Chicago has the second fewest penalty minutes with 184. Two of the last four meetings between these clubs went over the total, while the other two were a push with five goals. Out of the last 10 meetings between Chicago and St. Louis, only two goals stayed under the total. Chicago is ranked 1st overall for shots per game with 36.1 while the Blues rank 7th with 31.1 shots per game. When these clubs meet, we usually see lots of goals on the the score board, this should be a safe bet with the possibility for a push.
