Central Contenders Clash as Blues Visit Detroit
Looking for NHL Odds?
The Red Wings are in pole position in the heated Central Division but with fast-rising St. Louis gaining traction behind them it may not be for long. Can the veterans behind Detroit’s continued dominance keep ahead of David Backes, T.J. Oshie and the Blues?
Though the Blues have flirted with success over the past two seasons, they’ve only actually qualified for the postseason once since the lockout. Having departed a tradition of playoff hockey with the work stoppage, the young contingent of current St. Louis stars will be anxious to start a new era this spring.
According to Bovada’s NHL odds makers, the Blues have 15/1 odds of winning the Stanley Cup this season, a lofty goal considering their mediocre ceiling over the past half-decade. Is this the year the gritty franchise finally returns as a postseason force?
With months left in the regular season, fans looking for an idea of how the Western Conference playoff picture might unfold will be glued to the goings on of the Central Division. This midseason affair between two of its most likely contenders is as good an opportunity as any.
