History Not on Blues’ Side in Game 7s

Chicago Blackhawks St. Louis Blues NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

Less than one week ago, the St. Louis Blues were up 3-1 in their opening round series against the Chicago Blackhawks and many were expecting an eventual Western Conference semifinal appearance. Fast forward to today and the series is tied at three games apiece and the Blackhawks own all the momentum after rallying to victory in Game 6 Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • The Blues are 4-1 SU in their last five games after a loss.
  • The last time the Blues won a Game 7 Joel Quenneville was their head coach.
  • The Blackhawks are 1-5 SU in their last six games after consecutive wins.

Online shop Bovada is presently offering the Blackhawks at -115 in moneyline markets while the Blues are -105. The total is tabbed at 5 goals with OVER at -105 and UNDER currently -115.

The Blues cruised to a 3-1 lead after just 11 minutes of play in Game 6 and looked to be headed to the next round. That just proved to be a perfect microcosm of this series as a whole as the Blackhawks battled back and scored three goals in the second period and prevailed 6-3 to force Game 7.

The mere mention of “Game 7” sends shivers down the spines of Blues fans. The Blues enter Monday’s contest with three-straight losses in a seventh-and-deciding game and are losers of seven of their last nine. They lost by a score of 4-1 to the Vancouver Canucks back in the 2003 playoffs.

Granted, that was 13 years ago, but these historical trends have a way of haunting a franchise no matter what names are on the roster. Want some more historical data? The last time these two teams met in a Game 7 was 1990 when the Blackhawks won 8-2 thanks to a five-point performance from Steve Larmer.
