The San Jose Sharks and the St. Louis Blues will both be trying to pick up a win on Thursday when they battle at Scottrade Center.

ABOUT THE SHARKS (9-7-0): San Jose’s offense has been in a season-long funk and are seventh-worst in the NHL at 2.31 goals per contest. “I’m not scoring, and obviously it’s frustrating when you’re not scoring and you’re counted on to be an offensive player on the team,” center Logan Couture, who has yet to score a 5-on-5 goal this season, told reporters. The defense has been another story of late, as the stingy Sharks have permitted just four goals in as many games while their 2.25 per contest is fifth-best in the league.

ABOUT THE BLUES (8-6-3): Vladimir Tarasenko has been all over the ice this season to lead the team in goals (six), assists (12) and points (18), but the 24-year-old Russian – who is riding a six-game point streak (two goals, six assists) – joined Alex Steen in being absent from Wednesday’s practice. “Both guys needed it,” coach Ken Hitchcock told reporters, noting that the two forwards were given maintenance days. “We decided to switch it up and have a full practice today, and it wouldn’t have done them any good, so get them ready for tomorrow, both guys.” Defenseman Robert Bortuzzo (lower body) admitted to “getting close” to returning from a nine-game absence after participating in a full practice on Wednesday.

bovada-logo-top-book currently have the Blues listed as 110-moneyline favorites versus the Sharks, while the game’s total is sitting at 5.

The San Jose Sharks and St. Louis Blues renew acquaintances for the first time since the former eliminated the latter after six spirited games in last season’s Western Conference final. The Sharks look to add more salt in the wound as they attempt to record their fourth win in the first five contests on their current six-game road trip Thursday at St. Louis.

“Right now, we’ll take any motivation we can get to play those guys,” coach Peter DeBoer told the San Jose Mercury News on Wednesday, one day removed from a 1-0 loss to Carolina. “They’re an awful good team in every aspect. Well-coached. We’ve got our work cut out. I think our players know that, too.” While San Jose saw its three-game winning streak come to an end following its second shutout loss of the month, St. Louis continued to feast on home cookin’ Tuesday as it snapped a three-game skid with a 4-1 triumph over Buffalo. The Blues are 4-0-2 in their last six in the Gateway City and have yielded two goals or fewer in eight of their last nine home games.

St. Louis won its last outing, a 4-1 result against the Sabres on November 15. Bettors who backed the Blues at -202 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (5) sent PUSH bettors to the payout window.

The Sharks were a 1-0 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Hurricanes. That made winners of bettors who got Carolina at +123 on the moneyline, while the total score (1) was good news for OVER bettors.
