NHL FREE PICK: Take the under. According to latest NHL trends, the under is 9-4-2 in the Blues’ last 15 road games and 4-1-1 in their last six Monday games. The under is also 6-2-1 in the Blackhawks’ last nine home games and 8-3 in their last 11 games playing on one day of rest. The first two games of this series in St. Louis were both high-scoring but don’t forget that the Blues had massive issues offensively heading into the playoffs and are now without captain David Backes following the cheap hit he absorbed from Chicago defensemen Brent Seabroook. That will cause a re-shuffling of the lines and it could lead to some inconsistency from the Blues tonight.
