The Oil head into St. Louis to take on the Blues in the final game of the 5-game road trip. So far the Oilers are 4-0 on this road trip. I don’t want to jinx anything, but there’s no way I’d expect them to finish this road trip undefeated. The Blues have won 3 of their last 4, including a win against the Wings, and shootout wins vs. the Sharks and the Kings.
This is a tough one for me to predict. As is my new tradition though, I’ll go with the heart/brain predictions again. So, the heart is predicting a 3-1 Oilers win. The brain is going to predict a rather boring, 2-0 win for the Blues. I have a tough time believing that the Oil can keep this streak alive. And quite frankly, even though I thought it has been a pretty soft road trip, a road trip is a road trip, and these guys are making it hard to want to tank for Taylor.
