Money Line: 140.00 Vancouver (Away)
The Blues looked terrible in their first three round robin games, going 0-3 and scoring just six goals in the process.
The way St. Louis lost its final tune-up as well can't be sitting well with it, holding a 1-0 lead over the Stars until the final minute, only to allow Dallas to score and then go on to win in OT.
The Canucks on the other hand needed four games to beat the Wild, and they looked better with each game. Minnesota healed up with the extra time off and it was a potentially very dangerous opponent, however Vancouver handled the situation well after losing the first game.
I think the Canucks are the better team here and they're certainly "hungrier." I smell upset in Game 1!
Good luck, NP
