NHL Free Pick: St. Louis Blues

With the series knotted at 2-2, the St. Louis Blues and Boston Bruins dance once again in a key Game 5 Thursday night.

It's important to note how aggressive St. Louis was in Game 4 to even the series. So which team comes out more aggressively in Game 5?

St. Louis made a great adjustment in Game 4 after it lost Game 3 7-2. The Blues not only outshot Boston 38-23, but everyone got involved. The Blues had nine different players take at least three shots. St. Louis should provide the same type of pressure in Game 5 that it applied in Game 4, and Boston won't be able to stand up against that pressure.
