New Orleans isn't the only place where the saints go marching in. The St. Louis Blues have been keeping a beat to their own drummer in the NHL since they arrived on the scene and, for the most part, it's been quite a success story. There's a deep love affair between the city and the Blues, one that began almost from Day 1 when the club was one of the six NHL expansion teams that began play during the 1967-68 season. Today's Blues are deep in talented forwards and stellar defensemen. With a loud, pro-Blues fanbase, the Scottrade Center is one of the toughest rinks for a visiting team to travel.
The Blues can put the puck in the net and are well-coached in the defensive ways of the game, so betting against them, especially on home ice, is always a risky venture.

What is the health of the team? Are they an arch-rival of the Blues, because in rivalry games, the stats can often be thrown out the window. Apply these questions to the current status of the Blues as well before placing any wager.

How To Make Money Betting On St. Louis Blues
A franchise with a rich tradition, the Blues are the only team in NHL history to reach the Stanley Cup final in their first season of existence, but despite that, they also remain the oldest active NHL team that's never won the Stanley Cup. In fact, in their three Cup final appearances between 1968-70 the Blues were a combined 0-12, so they've never even won a Stanley Cup final game and join the 1938-40 Toronto Maple Leafs as the only NHL teams to lose three successive Cup final series.
Like it or not, the current Blues carry this burden of playoff failure on their shoulders. Every spring hope is eternal as the Blues send another strong squad into post-season play, but they always seem to find a way to come up short.
