Chicago Blackhawks vs St Louis Blues takes place on Thursday night in the NHL from the United Center in Illinois. The Blackhawks will look to continue their good start to the season in which they are attempting to successfully defend their Stanley Cup title. The game will start at 8 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Blackhawks have only one regulation defeat this season so far, and they have the chance to gain revenge for that loss tonight. Their loss came at the hands of the St Louis Blues, and the Blackhawks will be desperate to reverse that result tonight.
In that previous game, Alex Steen scored the game winning goal for the Blues with just 20 seconds left in regulation time. That result ensured that the Blues remained unbeaten and drew first blood against their fierce rivals, the Blackhawks.
Since that game though, the Blackhawks have looked extremely good, winning their past three games, where as the Blues took a beating on Tuesday against the San Jose Sharks, who were able to pile on six goals even though they lost Dan Boyle to a dirty hit from Blues forward Maxim Lapierre.
The Blackhawk will be looking to set the record straight tonight; even in their previous loss to the Blues, Chicago were able to dominate possession for long periods, and frustrated St Louis throughout with their disciplined performance.
The Blues are likely to come out tonight and try and throw their weight around to slow the speedier Blackhawks unit down. However, whether they will be successful or not remains to be seen.
