The Minnesota Wild look to stave off elimination as they travel to St. Louis for Game 6 of their first-round series against the Blues. Tone's Takes breaks down the game.

St. Louis Blues vs Minnesota Wild Prediction: Will the Goal Scoring Continue in Game 6?

The St. Louis Blues took Game 4 by a 5-2 score over the Minnesota Wild thanks to a third-period Natural Hat Trick by, once maligned, Vladimir Tarasenko. His three third-period goals broke a 2-2 deadlock. Tarasenko, who asked for a trade in the off-season, had a spectacular regular season as he led the team with 34 goals and 82 points. Since the Blues' 4-0 Game 1 win, the Over 6 is 3-0-1 in this series, Games 2-5 have seen a combined 28 goals scored. In two elimination games thus far in this year's playoffs, the Over is 2-0 with a total of 16 goals being scored. 

Here is my prediction, pick, and the odds for the St. Louis Blues vs Minnesota Wild Game 6 tonight.

St. Louis Blues vs Minnesota Wild Prediction

The Blues Power Play has been a big difference in this season thus far. St. Louis is 6-20 on the man advantage and is tied for second in Power Play goals. The Blues' offense has been great all season as they averaged 3.77 goals per game, which was third-highest in the league. At home, the Blues averaged 3.78 goals per game, which was fifth best. The Wild have their backs against the wall, they will turn to young stud Krill Kaprizov, who is tied for the league lead in playoff goals with seven. Minnesota averaged 3.77 goals per game this season and 3.34 on the road. Minnesota's Power play is four for 19 in this series. Marc-Andre Fleury and Jordan Binnington are the expected goaltending matchup and neither has been spectacular in this series.

I think the recent trends of goal in this series will continue, I am more comfortable, as I have been all series, of going with an Alternate line of six as some of these games have come right down to the wire. I am expecting desperation on both sides, as the Wild obviously have to win this game, and the Blues would rather not go back to Minnesota for a Game 7.
