Bet on hockey profits have been made by both teams so far with the hockey odds and both are among the favorites to win their respective division titles. The St. Louis Blues are a gritty, hard working mixture of youth and veterans to bet on hockey with.
The Blues started the season 3-2-1 with the hockey odds and came off an important 5-0 Saturday night win at Anaheim to serve notice to those who bet on hockey that they can play a full 60 minutes effectively.
The Blues were getting a bad reputation with experts that bet on hockey for stumbling out of the gate in games and digging themselves a hole. The Blues are hoping that win over the Ducks will be the springboard of good things to come and make them a more attractive team to bet on hockey with.
“We really needed that game”, said left winger Andy McDonald. “For whatever reason, we have struggled the last few games. We haven’t played anywhere close to what we’re capable of”. McDonald is off to a good start to the season with 3 goals, (including 2 at Anaheim), and 3 assists.
Goaltender Ty Conklin got the shutout win at Anaheim to improve to 2-0 with a 1.50 goals against average. Veteran Keith Tkachuk led the Blues with 3 goals and 4 assists along with tough and courageous play in front of opposition goaltenders.
The Pittsburgh Penguins look even better to those who bet on hockey than last year’s Stanley Cup winning team. Pittsburgh won 7 out of their first 8 bet on hockey results to be tied with the New York Rangers as the top team in the Eastern Conference.
As those who bet on hockey would expect, Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby are lighting the lamp early and often. Malkin had 3 goals and 6 assists while Crosby had 4 goals and 3 assists.
Goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury has been stellar as he won all 7 of his starts with a tidy 2.10 goals against average. The Blues are improving but Pittsburgh is as tough an opponent as you can find, especially at “The Igloo”.
