Philadelphia Flyers at St. Louis Blues
The St. Louis Blues are facing off the Philadelphia Flyers tonight in possibly the most mediocre game of the season. Both of these teams have been extremely mediocre this season. They have both been disappointing their fans and have given up on the playoff picture as of a couple weeks ago through trades. I don’t dislike any of these teams, but I also don’t like any of these teams. So, let’s get into the stats.
Although Jordan Binnington has been in the net for the Blues all season and has an exactly .500 record, he’s been pretty terrible for the Blues all season long. He averages 3.39 goals against per game and only has 2 shut outs in his 56 games this season. Samuel Errson is starting in net tonight for the Flyers, and he has been in the games that he has started this season. He holds a 6-2-0 record, but still allows 3.03 goals per game. Neither of these goalies have been quality, but their performances have been good enough to where both of their teams weren’t eliminated from the playoffs until recently. This is due to the facts that each team does have a decent goal scorer. Travis Konecny has 29 goals this season and Jordan Kyrou has 36. Both are also mediocre, but they have the ability to put the puck in the net.
As I have made it very clear, both of these teams are the most mediocre teams in the league. But I think that they are still going to make it an exciting and high scoring affair. So, the picks are below.
Hammer: Blues/Flyers o6.5
Sprinkle: Brayden Schenn o1.5 shots
Sprinkle: Correct Score: Flyers 5 Blues 3
