NHL Picks for Monday: New York Rangers vs. St. Louis Blues, Vancouver Canucks vs. Montreal Canadiens

Well there are a few totals I like on this relatively smaller slate this evening so I want to give out two plays in this article.

New York Rangers vs St. Louis Blues Prediction

Normally a total involving Igor Shesterkin is something I would stay weary of but these two squads have a history of high-scoring affairs and with the way, St. Louis overs have been hitting this year I have to bite on the low number. The 5.5 number is my favorite in hockey not only because it is low but because the likelihood of hitting it is so much greater based on the ways we can get there.

Both squads are solid offensively and play each other well; four of the last five meetings between these squads have gone over 5.5 and three of those did by multiple-goal margins. This feels like a gift line based on goaltending and I am all about it.

Vancouver Canucks vs. Montreal Canadiens Prediction

The second total I am eyeing this evening is the late game up north. The Montreal Canadiens are in Vancouver for a clash with Canucks and I like goals to be scored in this one. Three of the last four meetings between these two squads have gone over and with the way these two squads have been conceding this season, I feel like we have a solid chance of seeing that trend continue.

Montreal is conceding at a rate of 3.42 GAA and are coming off a game in which they gave up five to Edmonton. Vancouver has cooled off a little bit offensively but are still scoring at a solid rate of 3.36 GPG. Defensively they still rank among the worst in the league with a 3.76 GAA.
