Scheduled for Wednesday, this matchup offers some of the best premium insights into how these two teams will compete under the bright lights of ESPN+ coverage.


The Blackhawks’ offensive quartet, including Connor Bedard and Philipp Kurashev, is destined for a difficult challenge in the face of the Blues’ defense game. Bedard, who scored 22 goals and assisted 37 times, as well as Kurashev who notched 16 goals and assisted on 35 occasions represented the struggling team’s effort of elevating their prospect. Nevertheless, their low team rating, which points to a weak defense that may help the Blues to get some points too.


In the same strain, the Blues have a tough attacking team led by Robert Thomas and Jordan Kyrou. Thomas scored 77 points with 23 goals and 54 assists to his name, while Kyrou added 60 points from his end forming a deadly duo that can trouble any opposing defensive line.

Stream:  NHL.TV


Goaltender Petr Mrazek vs. Goaltender Jordan Binnington


Petr Mrazek‘s season, registering a .906 save percentage in 53 games, demonstrates his capability to hold down the fort between the pipes. Facing a flood of shots and few saves, his experience will be very important for maintaining a balance between the opponent and Blackhawks. He showed a shootout save percentage which is a skill to handle the pressured situations and the most important of all in the face of the Blues’ offensive assault.


For the Blues, the netminder is Jordan Binnington, who shows a slight advantage over Mrazek in terms of save percentage (.911) and goals-against average (2.84). No wonder he has performed so well as he always makes life-saving saves when necessary and that in turn becomes the main defensive strategy of the club.

Chicago Blackhawks Betting Trends


The Blackhawks have had a mixed series of results, playing two games each one next. Their overall record in the past 5 games suggests that the team is a bit scattered. The effect of their away-game performance ATS doesn’t bring good results but the over O/U 3 games in 5 recent games appears to them to perform high score games, and this factor is something bettors should think about.


St. Louis Blues Betting Trends


The Blues have had the same results, as Blackhawks, 3-2 overall, but by their great performance as visitors against the line, they show their ability to hold on to games. In the context of fewer games, OVER is called just one fewer time. This shows that a balanced approach between offense and defense is favored.
