Friday's game

San Jose Sharks (+120) at St. Louis Blues (-135)

Game 4 puck line odds: Sharks +1.5 (-230), Blues -1.5 (+190)

Game 4 over/under: 5.5 goals

Wyshynski: If you've followed our picks in this space, you'll notice I haven't made a selection on the puck line for a road 'dog. But given what happened in overtime of Game 3, I feel like this is an "all bets are off" scenario. How are the Blues going to react? How are the refs going to react?

All I know is this: The Sharks are 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 games, and the Blues are 3-7. It's really all we have as far as some semblance of a certainty in these uncertain times.
