Blues on a Roll at Home vs Blackhawks

Blues Blackhawks NHL

The St. Louis Blues will embark on a quest to end a run of disappointing playoff performances tonight at home against the Blackhawks. Luckily for them, they’ve owned Chicago when the teams meet at the Scottrade Center, winning eight of the last 11 times the teams met there.

Shark Bites
  • The Blues are 7-2 SU in their last nine games against teams with winning records.
  • The Blackhawks are 2-9 SU in their last 11 games against divisional opponents.
  • Blues F Vladimir Tarasenko scored two goals last week vs Chicago.

Looking at a smaller sample size, the Blues have also had the edge in this matchup recently, winning two straight, most recently in a 2-1 victory last week. Given their recent home dominance over the Hawks, the Blues opened as a -140 moneyline favorite with Chicago coming back at +110. Chicago hasn’t performed well in the underdog role, as they’ve gone just 3-8 in that spot this season.

The total for the game is set at an even five goals — a number these teams have failed to top in their last three games against each other. Even though the Blues saw more UNDERs and OVERs this season, it wasn’t their offense’s fault as they’ve scored over half of the posted total in 15 of their last 18 games.

These team last met in a playoff series in a first round matchup in 2014. Chicago won the series in six game, but the Blues were victorious in the first two games of the series which took place in St. Louis.
