Ahead of our predictions for the National Football League AFC and NFC Championship battles on Sunday, today’s free pick focus is on the National Hockey League. It’s a tale of two cities as the road weary Detroit Red Wings head into St. Louis to battle the Blues. Puck drop is scheduled for 8:00 PM ET on January 15, 2015, at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, MO.
St. Louis Blues: Scoring firepower display continues
Closing in on Tampa Bay, for first overall in National Hockey League scoring, not many teams are filling the nets the way St. Louis (27-13-3) has recently. With the NHL second half playoff push now underway, the Blues have posted five straight wins and have pummeled their opponents by a combined 29-10 final score along the way. After opening the New Year with three west coast road games, St. Louis is playing the fourth contest of a lengthy seven-game homestand tonight. The Blues are 16-4-1 on their home pond this season.
Detroit Red Wings: Road weary Motor City Crew are minus an All Star
Mirror opposite to the stretch the Blues are enjoying, Detroit has not played a home game since they posted a 3-1 win over New Jersey on New Year’s Eve. The Red Wings (23-11-9) have been all over the map as they close a six-game coast-to-coast road trip that began in Vancouver 13 days ago. Detroit is down to their third and fourth string netminders as Jimmy Howard has joined Jonas Gustavsson on the inactive list. Howard, the Wings lone 2015 NHL All-Star, suffered a groin injury on Saturday and will be out until early February. Blues vs Red Wings NHL Free Pick: Fans of St. Louis, as a Cup contender since the preseason, it’s not difficult to back the Blues tonight. Catching a road weary Red Wings squad, who are minus their top goaltender, while playing hotter than Las Vegas Boulevard in August themselves, is a winning recipe here. Side with St. Louis and a 500 unit wager on the money line posted on the SportsInteraction betting board.
