NHL Best Bets: August 14
Andrew Dewhirst brings you his best bets for today's NHL slate
Montreal Canadiens vs Philadelphia Flyers 3 PM EST
Based on what we saw on Wednesday, it is hard to see this being a high-scoring affair. I look for the Canadiens to be motivated tonight after losing head coach Claude Julian. If we get repeat performances though from Carey Price and Carter Hart, this should be another 2-1 or 3-2 game. I am taking the under.
Pick: Under 5.5
St. Louis Blues vs Vancouver Canucks 6:30 PM EST
The Blues came out flat in game one versus the Canucks and haven’t looked great since their first game of the round-robin. The Canucks have struggled with consistent play all year, and I look for the defending Stanley Cup champs to bounce back tonight in a game they really need to win.
Pick: Blues -145
