Chicago vs St. Louis: Blackhawks and Blues Battle in the Windy City

Chicago vs St. Louis: Blackhawks and Blues Battle in the Windy City
Checking in on National Hockey League action, the Chicago Blackhawks host the St. Louis Blues as part of a light four-game slate on the betting board at SportsInteraction. The Blackhawks have lost two straight, after a twelve game winning streak, while the Blues have just one regulation time loss during their last ten contests. Puck drop for this NHL Central Division rivalry battle is slated for 7:00 PM ET on January 24, 2016, at the United Center in Chicago, IL.

Chicago Blackhawks: Aiming to get back to their winning ways

Following a scintillating twelve-game winning streak, that moved the Hawks into first place in the Western Conference, Chicago has lost two in a row. The Blackhawks return home after road losses to Tampa Bay (2-1) on Thursday and Florida (4-0) on Friday. Sitting with a 32-15-4 overall record, Chicago has a three-point lead on Dallas in the Central Division – though the Stars do have two games in hand. The Hawks look ready and able to defend their 2015 Stanley Cup Championship.

St. Louis Blues: Moving closer to first place in the very competitive NHL Central Division

Thanks in part to a 7-4-4 run since the Christmas break – St. Louis is four points back in the Central Division and the Blues are third overall in the Western Conference. Along with Chicago, St. Louis has played a league high 51 games as both teams play their final contest prior to the NHL All-Star break. The Blues are playing a third straight road game after they posted a 2-1 win in Detroit on Wednesday and then dropped a 2-1 shootout decision to the Avalanche in Denver on Friday night. 

St. Louis vs Chicago NHL Call: Brian Elliott (10-5-5 GAA 2.24) faces Corey Crawford (27-11-2 GAA 2.13) in the goaltending duel here. This is the third of five meetings between these teams this season after the Blues posted a 6-5 (OT) victory in Chicago and the Hawks registered a 4-2 win in St. Louis in games played in November. The Hawks haven’t lost three straight games in regulation time since they dropped four in row to close out the 2014-15 season. Back the Blackhawks with a five-unit wager on the money line price posted on the NHL betting board at SportsInteraction.
