Huge Division Battle as Blues Host Hawks

With the exception of the Metropolitan, the races for division supremacy in the NHL are becoming more intriguing with each passing day. The battle for the Central Division is front and center as four teams are now in the hunt for the crown. Two of those clubs are set to tangle as the Chicago Blackhawks visit the St. Louis Blues Wednesday night.

Shark Bites
  • The Blackhawks are 3-7 SU in their last 10 road games against the Blues.
  • The total has gone OVER the Blackhawks’ last seven games on the road.
  • The Blues are 6-1 SU in their last seven games after a win in their previous effort.

Online shop Bovada is currently offering the Blues at -120 on home ice in moneyline markets while the Blackhawks are offered at -110. As far as the total is concerned, OVER 5 goals is presently -120 while UNDER 5 is at -110.

The Dallas Stars lead the Central with 88 points with the Hawks at 87 and the Blues at 85. The Nashville Predators have been sizzling since mid February and have joined the party with 80 points.

The Blues own the league’s second-longest current winning streak at three games (New York Islanders have a four-game streak) but will have to snap a two-game drought versus the Blackhawks. The Blues scored a 6-5 win in the clubs’ first meeting but the Hawks triumphed 4-2 and 2-0 in the next two contests.

The Blackhawks come in with three wins in their last four and skated to a 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings in their last game Sunday. Starting tonight, five of their next seven games are against division foes so they have a great opportunity to distance themselves from the rest of the pack.
