A lot of high scoring affairs last night in the NHL, but tonight’s SideLeague NHL features one game and that’s a battle between St. Louis & Chicago with some serious playoff implications. So let’s take a look at a few guys you should target for the game.
Patrick Berglund, St. Louis Blues: St. Louis has won every meeting against Chicago this year and definitely want to make it a clean sweep tonight. These teams top lines have pretty much cancelled each other out each game, so I’d avoid the top lines of either team. That’s where Berglund comes into play. He has a goal and 2 assists against Chicago this year.
Andrew Shaw & Kris Versteeg, Chicago Blackhawks: Shaw’s been pretty hot the last few games and skates on a pretty wicked power play unit. He’s scored a goal against St. Louis before, I think he can do it again. Versteeg hasn’t scored a goal or assist against St. Louis this year, but he does have 5 penalty minutes against the Blues this year. In what should be an intense game, who says he can’t get at least 2?
