Game of the Day: Blackhawks at Blues
By Covers.com

Chicago Blackhawks at St. Louis Blues (-110, 5)

Patrick Kane is no stranger to scoring dramatic overtime goals in the postseason - see Game 6 of the 2010 Stanley Cup final if you need to refresh your memory. While the stakes weren't as high, the reigning Conn Smythe Trophy winner netted his second goal of the contest 11:17 into the extra session as Chicago skated to a 4-3 victory on Wednesday to even its Western Conference first-round series with the St. Louis Blues at two games apiece. The Central Division rivals will reconvene in St. Louis for Game 5 on Friday.

The reigning Stanley Cup champions held serve by winning both contests in Chicago after the Blues opened the series with a pair of home victories. "We're not in a bad spot. It's tied and we still have home ice," St. Louis defenseman Jay Bouwmeester said. "We still have a good opportunity here." Whether the Blues have David Backes (upper body) for Friday's tilt is a mystery, although the captain did not participate in Thursday's optional skate - prompting coach Ken Hitchcock to tell reporters to "read into it what you will."

LINE HISTORY: The Blues opened as small -110 home faves Thursday morning. The total opened at five.

INJURY REPORT: Blackhawks - D Brent seabrook (Out, suspension), G Nikolai Khabibulin (Out, shoulder). Blues - C David Backes (Questionable, head), LW Brenden Morrow (Out, foot).

WHAT SHAPRS SAY: "This series is back at square one but you have to think the Blackhawks have all of the momentum following back-to-back wins at the United Center. With that being said the Hawks bandwagon is also filling up once again, leading to little in the way of line value here. While I do expect Chicago to steal a game in St. Louis at some point in this series, the Blues will fight tooth and nail to avoid facing  elimination in The Windy City in Game 6." Covers Expert Sean Murphy.

WHY BET THE BLACKHAWKS: For the third time in four years, Jonathan Toews was named a finalist for the Selke Trophy - which is awarded to the top defensive forward. The captain, who is vying for a repeat after winning the award for the first time in 2013, was joined by Boston's Patrice Bergeron and Los Angeles' Anze Kopitar as finalists. Toews collected a goal and an assist in Game 4, has a team-high five points and won 64.2 percent of his faceoffs (68-for-106) in the series.

WHY BET THE BLUES: Vladimir Tarasenko has put his injuries woes behind him with a stellar effort versus Chicago. After missing the last 15 games of the regular season with a hand injury, the 22-year-old Russian tallied twice on Wednesday to double his team-leading goal total for the series. "Exceptional. He's been a great player every game," Hitchcock said. "Young, emerging player. Hopefully he stays with it and helps us a lot."

TRENDS:

* Over is 4-1 in the last five meetings.
* Blackhawks are 0-5 in the last five meetings in St. Louis.
* Blues are 2-8 in their last 10 overall.
* Blackhawks are 7-19 in their last 26 road games.

COVERS CONSENSUS: Sixty-three percent of wagers are on the home-fave Blues.
