The St Louis Blues travel to the windy city to face the Chicago Blackhawks in what is sure to be the showdown of the week. The historically good Blackhawks are 27th in the NHL with a record of 10-11-5. The St Louis Blues sit 3rd in the NHL posting a record of 17-5-6. The Blues are coming off of some big wins and will look to continue their momentum while Chicago is ready to end their losing streak and get back in the win column.

Chicago Blackhawks Search For Win

The Chicago Blackhawks are riding the struggle bus as of late, currently in the bottom of the NHL standings. When on the road, the Blackhawks have not been at their best with a record of 3-5-3 when away from the Windy City. when at home, the Blackhawks are much better fortunately for their fans. Chicago's defense when on the road is ranked 14th in the NHL, allowing an average of 3.27 goals per game, decreasing when at home giving them an edge in this one.

Both goalies Corey Crawford and Robin Lehner have been having success, saving over 91% of shots faced. Chicago's skaters have been giving them zero help, allowing the most shots against and will need to start winning in the neutral zone if they want to cut down on shots allowed.

The Blackhawks have not been as good on offense ranking 17th with 2.64 goals scored per game. Olli Maatta has been an issue on defense, only scoring 8 points in 27 games this year. Maatta was brought in to help set up their forwards and has not been able to get it done thus far. He will need to wake up if Chicago wants to win tonight.

St Louis Blues Travels For Wins

The Blues have been able to travel well this year, compiling a road record of 9-2-3. The Blues are led on defense by goaltender Jordan Binnington. Binnington is easily a top 3 goaltender this year, and games such as the 5-2 victory against the Penguins help prove it. He makes big saves when needed and can bail the Blues out of a scoring drought.

On the flip side, the Blues offense has not made as much noise but have been improving. They have moved up to 11th in the NHL on offense when on the road with 3.14 goals scored per game. David Perron continues to emerge as the offensive leader on the Blues and will need to create opportunities tonight if St Louis wants to win.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Take the St Louis Blues in this matchup. Jordan Binnington is an elite goaltender this season and betting against him has proven unwise. Binnington has every facet of his game working right now, from getting across the crease quickly to controlling rebounds, Binnington has given his all this season and will continue his domination here tonight. David Perron has been a leader on this team as well, originally drafted by the Blues, Perron is an amazing locker room leader and has shown it on the ice. Skaters play better because of Perron's leadership and ability to stretch the defense with his playmaking style, look for him to have a big day here.

Prediction: St. Louis Blues

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Take the Under, go with the goalies in this one. Looks like Corey Crawford is going to get the start for St Louis tonight, and has proven he can hang tough against the best offenses in the NHL. On the other side of the ice, bet the Under because of Binnington. Jordan Binnington continues to emerge as ana amazing goaltender and will be in his best form tonight as the Blues roll in on a hot streak. If this Under is going to hit, it will also rely on the skaters from both teams not to make careless turnovers and control the zones well in this battle.

Prediction: Under
