The St. Louis Blues hope to build their win streak to 6 wins against a Chicago Blackhawks team that has won 4 of their last 5 games.

The St. Louis Blues (45-18-7, 97 pts) have fought to first place in the Central Division Standings, and they have won 9 of their last 10 games, bringing a 5-game winning streak into Tuesday night's game against the Chicago Blackhawks (37-25-8, 82 pts).

St. Louis boasts the league's best points per game rate, .693, which has come largely on the merit of their defense. Despite playing 70 games (second most in the NHL), the Blues have allowed a league-fewest 135 goals this season:
