Jordan Binnington allowed just one goal on 33 shots in Sunday's 4-1 road win against the Minnesota Wild. Binnington was beaten by Marcus Foligno at 1:43 of the second period to end his bid for a third consecutive shutout, but that's all he allowed. He has won three straight after an 0-2-2 run, improving to 27-11-7 with a 2.59 goals-against average and .913 save percentage for the season. The Blues are back at it Tuesday night on NBCSN against the Chicago Blackhawks.
The under is 4-1 in the Blackhawks’ last five games versus Western Conference foes and is 4-1 in the Blues’ last five games, including 3-1-1 in their last five home games. That said, for whatever reason, fireworks usually occur when these two teams meet. The over is 14-4-4 in the last 22 meetings between these two teams and is 12-3-6 in the last 21 meetings in St. Louis. The over is also 3-0-1 in the Blues’ last four games when their opponent allowed two goals or less in its previous game and is 10-4 in the Blackhawks’ last 14 games playing on one day of rest.
