Everybody has been talking about the NHL’s top four powerhouse teams… the New York Rangers, Vancouver Canucks, Detroit Red Wings and Boston Bruins, but slowly sneaking up as a surprising dominating team in the NHL are the St. Louis Blues! The Blues play the Canucks on March 1st and the winner will be the #1 team in the NHL. The Blues have the best defense in the League led by star goalie Brian Elliot so it should be a low scoring game.

In the NBA, there are quite a few teams that seem like they could have a shot for the big prize, but Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder stands as the League’s best team right now. This month is a good test for Kevin and the Thunder as they are scheduled to play last year’s champs the Dallas Mavericks on March 5th, the Miami Heat on March 25th.
