Boston (46-24-5) has already clinched one of the wild card spots in the Eastern Conference, but time is running out for the Bruins to improve their standing in the conference and challenge the Tampa Bay Lightning for the third seed in the Atlantic Division. The Bruins have been up-and-down recently, going 5-5-0 in their past ten. Boston did earn a hard-fought 2-1 win against Pittsburgh on Saturday. The top line of Brad Marchand (31 G, 42 A), David Pastrnak (38 G, 33 A) and Patrick Bergeron (20 G, 36 A) have been solid when healthy.
St. Louis (46-20-10) has to be considered along that first-tier of favorites to win the Stanley Cup. The Blues have won nine straight and are 11-0-1 in their past 12. St. Louis is finding the net at an incredible pace, scoring 54 goals in April, averaging six goals a game. That’s mid-80s Edmonton Oilers type of scoring. Robert Thomas has one of the hottest sticks in the league with 25 points (6 G, 19 A) during a 13-game point streak. Vladimir Tarasenko has been the beneficiary of Thomas’ playmaking, scoring eight goals during a five-game goal scoring streak.
