Expert Picks: Available Here!

Preview: Two long time rivals in the National Hockey League will get together at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis. The defending Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks will take on the St. Louis Blues. Currently both teams are on the outside looking in as far as postseason chances.

The Blackhawks are tied in third in the Central Division, and tied for 11th overall in the Western Conference with 64 points. Just behind them, fifth in the Central Division and 13th overall is the St. Louis Blues. The Blues have 63 points; just 5 back of a postseason berth. Chicago is 3-5-2 in their last ten games, coming off a 4-3 loss on Friday to the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Blackhawks host Pittsburgh on Sunday, so will be playing in back-to-back affairs. Chicago ranks as the fifth highest scoring team in the NHL, with 3.1 goals per game. Patrick Sharp leads the charge for the Blackhawks, with 30 goals and 22 assists.

The Blues come into the game fresh off a 9 goal outing over the Anaheim Ducks. That win came after shutting out the Buffalo Sabres on Friday night. St. Louis is scoring 2.8 goals per game, and allowing 2.8 as well. David Backes is the leading scorer for St. Louis, with 22 goals and 23 assists.

My Betting Predictions: St. Louis stays hot with a win. Blues win 3-2.
