Could Playing In Chicago Favor the Blues?

The St. Louis Blues and Chicago Blackhawks will take the ice at the United Center for the first time in their series following two closely contested games Sunday afternoon. This could actually worry the ‘Hawks, as the Blues are a stellar 13-3-0 in their past 16 road games entering the playoffs.

Shark Bites
  • Patrick Kane has two goals and five assists in seven games vs the Blues this year.
  • The UNDER is 4-1 in the Blues past five games on the road.
  • Corey Crawford has a 1.50 GAA and a .939 SV% so far this series.

The Blues ended the regular season with the second-best road record in the Western conference, but have won just five of their past 20 trips to the United Center. Vladimir Taresenko has been a force against the Blackhawks as the winger has six goals and two assists in seven games against Chicago this season (including playoffs).

Chicago was the second-best home team in the Western Conference this season with a 26-11-4 record at the United Center, however, since the start of February the team is just 5-9-0 in front of their home fans.
