Los Angeles Kings (HOME) (-140) OVER St. Louis Blues (AWAY)
For a team that supposedly can't score, averaging 4 goals per game through the first three games of their current series against the Blues is pretty impressive. When a team averages 4 goals per game and goalie Jonathan Quick has a 1.62 goals against average through the playoffs thus far, that's a winning formula. The Kings continue to roll and they appear to have solved their issues playing at home during the playoffs, winning 2 of 3 thus far in 2012. The Blues, who looked like they were going to be the team to beat in the West entering this round of the playoffs, look like they are finished. Elliott has simply failed to capitalize on his opportunity in net once Halak went down. Kings take out the brooms tonight and go for the sweep. Los Angeles wins.
