The New Jersey Devils have been fade material on the road dating back to last season, and that doesn’t change here. The St. Louis Blues play their best hockey on their home ice, and they’ve been dominant this season in the favorite role. It’s tough to find value in the Devils in these spots. Give me the Blues and the PL to shave down the ML price.
