Stephen Nover's Stanley Cup Total of the Week
(NHL) St. Louis vs. Colorado, 05/19/2022 9:30 PM, Score: 4 - 1
Total: 6.50 | -117.00 Over
Result: Loss
Expect more than the five goals that were scored in Game 1 when the Avalanche nipped the Blues, 3-2, in overtime.

These teams tied for the third-most goals during the regular season, each averaging 3.8 goals per game.

Colorado peppered Blues goalie Jordan Binnington with 54 shots with three hitting the post and two the crossbar. I'm not counting on the inconsistent Binnington playing that well and being that lucky again. St. Louis is likely to still be missing defensemen Marco Scandella and Torey Krug. The Avalanche did their scoring damage with their supporting cast. Their superstars are due to step up now.

The offensive-minded Blues have excellent scoring depth, too. The Over is 13-3-1 in their last 17 road games.

Prior to Game 1, the teams had gone Over during their past six meetings.
