Situational Barnburner - Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach NHL Game #65 Saturday - 8* Winnipeg Jets Money Line (+) @ St Louis Blues @ 7:05 ET - The Blues are expected to have Carter Hutton between the pipes and they've won just 1 of his last 3 starts. Overall, in his last 4 appearances, Hutton has an ugly .870 save percentage and this is a definite flat spot here as St Louis is off of a tight win versus Tampa Bay and has Montreal on deck. Winnipeg has never really posed a real threat to the Blues in the division so it's hard to blame the Blues if they overlook them a bit here. But that will prove to be a mistake and it certainly is noteworthy that the road team has won 6 of the last 9 meetings between these clubs. Even though St Louis is on a 3-game winning streak, they are 1-2 this season when they enter a game on a winning streak of 3 games or more. Also, in their last 4 games, the Blues have allowed an average of 3.5 goals per game. Winnipeg is off of an ugly 6-3 home loss to Edmonton but previously allowed a total of just 2 goals in their 2 prior games. This is a tremendous value spot in a game where the Jets will be the hungrier team and, arguably, will have the better goalie between the pipes as well. 8* WINNIPEG JETS money line Saturday
