Game thoughts:
The Rangers and Blues, two clubs that pride themselves on defense and hard work, have surprised some by their early-season excellence. The two teams will go head-to-head tonight in St. Louis in what should be an interesting contest, as both have been playing great hockey of late. This game feels like a toss-up, especially since they don’t see each other all that much. In the end, go with the Blues…
Prediction: Blues 2, Rangers 1

Stars over Islanders
Canucks over Hurricanes
Blue Jackets over Kings
Flyers over Canadiens
Lightning over Flames
Predators over Red Wings
Capitals over Jets
Coyotes over Oilers
