The St. Louis Blues are enjoying their best stretch of the season, and they’re running into a Ducks side that’s counting the days until the off season. The Anaheim Ducks likely aren’t the team to slow down these Ducks, especially at home, where the advantage hasn’t mattered to them much. The Ducks have had recent success against the Blues, but that probably doesn’t matter here. Give me the Blues and the PL for max betting value.
