St. Louis Blues vs Chicago Blackhawks Game Preview 11/16/2022

By

The St. Louis Blues travel to the United Center for a matchup with the Chicago Blackhawks tonight. Puck-drop is scheduled for 7:30pm EST from the Windy City.

The Blues enter this game with a record of 6-8, looking to make up some ground in the Western Conference standings. The Blackhawks come in with a record of 6-6-3 and they as well need to start grabbing some victories before it’s too late.

The offense for St. Louis is going to need to step up here tonight if they want a chance to win. It has been a rough start for them, averaging only 2.43 goals per game and scoring on 21.6 percent of their power play opportunities.

For Chicago, they aren’ much better. They are averaging 2.53 goals per game and scoring on 21.7 percent of their power play chances.

With both offenses being bad, this game has the feel of a low scoring affair. Chicago comes in having lost seven of nine games while the Blues want to try to extend their winning streak.

The Blackhawks have the clear advantage on the defensive side of the ice as the Blues have been abysmal this season. If they can generate chances, they have a good chance of taking this game.

Prediction: St. Louis Blues 3, Chicago Blackhawks 2

I like the Blues to do just enough to escape with the victory and add to their winning streak tonight.
