Two teams who haven’t been familiar with the loss column lately meet as the Blackhawks head to St. Louis to take on the Blues.
The Blackhawks enter play winners of 6 straight games, while St. Louis has grabbed back to back wins.
Chicago is asserting their dominance here in the early going.
Winners of 6 straight games, the Blackhawks are leaning on stars Patrick Kane and captain Jonathan Toews to lead the charge.
Chicago has put up one of the best goals per game in the NHL behind the two, as they are averaging 3.54 goals per game.
Marian Hossa has even gotten in on the fun, as he’s put up 7 points over his last 6 games. Hossa had a an assist to go along with the game winning goal in the 4-3 win over Dallas last time out for Chicago.
G Corey Crawford is also coming up huge for this Chicago team, especially as of late.
He made some huge saves down the stretch and in overtime against the Stars and will bring in a very impressive record here against the Blues.
Crawford has gone 14-5-5 lifetime against St. Louis, but did drop a meeting earlier this season by allowing 3 goals.
St. Louis Blues
The Blues saw a huge, encouraging sign from G Jake Allen in the team’s previous contest.
Allen turned aside 22 of the 23 shots he faced, as the Blues earned their 2nd straight win with a 5-1 victory over Colorado.
Allen enjoys playing at home as well, where he is 3-0-1 with a 0.98 goals against.
The Blues will likely sit Nail Yakupov, the 2012 top pick, which will mark his 3rd straight game of being a healthy scratch.
There is clearly some animosity between Yakupov and the Blues coaching staff as it’s becoming a norm to not have Yakupov in the lineup.
Back on 10/12, the Blues took it to the Hawks on the road 5-2. However, it’s important to note the 2 of the goals were empty netters.
