The defending Stanley Cup champions have started to look like they are playing among the elite again. Granted, the Blues have only managed to find their way back to 3rd place in the Central, but it is definitely a move in the right direction. The last game on the ice for the Blues was a 2-1 victory over the Wild, but the Blues do play the Blue Jackets on Friday and that could upset the Blues balance to a point.

The Wild recently lost to Saint Louis on the road and now get to play the Blues at home. However, the Wild are a team that has had a wild year so far.

Free NHL Pick:
The Wild have had quite a few struggles on the year and the Wild defense is suffering from the lack of offense. Look for that to continue to be an issue for the Wild in this game as the Blues have already beaten the Wild and while the Blues are coming in for the second half of a back to back game it is not a long trip and the Blues are facing a very weak Blue Jackets team. Final Score Prediction, Saint Louis Blues win 3-1.
