St. Louis Blues vs. Vegas Golden Knights Preview, Prediction, and Odds | March 25, 2024

St. Louis Blues vs. Vegas Golden Knights

These teams have met twice already, but Monday’s battle between the St. Louis Blues and Vegas Golden Knights will be one of the most important during this regular season.

The Blues went to Las Vegas and won 2-1 in OT back in December. Fast forward to March, where St. Louis has 79 points, four behind Monday’s opponent. There isn’t another team between them and the final wild-card spot, so the St. Louis Blues’ season could hinge on this game.

As for the defending champion Golden Knights, the past two months have been a nightmare. This team has fallen from a firm standing in the Pacific Division to barely in a playoff spot. The road ahead is riddled with tough tests, so they need to right the ship immediately.

Good luck finding a game with higher stakes than this. What will happen in this crucial clash?

  • Jonathan Marchessault paces the team in goals (38) and points (60)

Match Prediction

Both teams have been consistently producing offensively lately. However, there is a key difference in this game. The Blues are at home, where their defense and goaltending have been excellent. Vegas won’t have their top goalie, Adin Hill, while they’ve also allowed 26 goals in their past five road games. Each of the Golden Knights’ opponents scored at least four goals during that stretch.

So, expect St. Louis to dominate this game, starting with at least four goals scored. Colorado, the NHL’s highest-scoring unit, is the only team to visit St. Louis and score more than two goals in March. The Blues will dominate on Monday and inch closer to that final wild-card spot.

Final Pick

St. Louis Blues ML (+124) or St. Louis Blues -1.5 (+255)
