St. Louis vs Colorado: prediction for the NHL game
St. Louis Blues
After a good performance in the second game of the quarterfinal series (4:1), the St. Louis Blues lost two home games and almost threw away the series. But last night, the team demonstrated strong character and came back after conceding three goals. The game ended with a score of 5:4.
The defense of the Blues struggles against Colorado's powerful attack. In each of the last three games, Craig Berube's men conceded at least four goals. At the same time, St. Louis use their opponents' mistakes well and look great on counterattacks.
The Colorado Avalanche rarely lost at their home court this season, but oddly enough, they have suffered two home defeats in the current quarterfinal series. In the last game, the Avalanche lost focus and allowed the Blues to beat them after they had secured a three-goal advantage.
In general, Colorado are amazing on offense and rely fully on the attacking line, often forgetting about their defenses. However, the team is well-disciplined - they committed only three fouls in the last game and didn't concede while defending against power play.
The Avalanche have scored more than 3 goals in their last 3 games.
In 3 out of 5 games, Colorado won the second period.
Colorado got overconfident in the last game, and as a result, failed in the third period. We believe they will draw the right conclusions from that defeat. Overall, the Avalanche have played better than the Blues, and we believe they will get the upper hand in the sixth game of the series.
Our prediction - Colorado to win
Colorado have one of the best attacks in the NHL and have consistently scored more than three goals in the previous three games. St. Louis' defense hasn't been very reliable, so we do not doubt that the Avalanche will convert their chances in the upcoming game. We suggest playing the individual total of the visitors.
Second bet - Colorado IT over 3.5 goals
