The Chicago Blackhawks are reigning Stanley Cup champions and are trying to be the first team to repeat as cup holders during the salary-cap era. The Blues want to prevent yet another first round knock out. The St. Louis team have been unable to make it to the second round in each of the last three seasons.
The Blackhawks took the Blues out in 2014 after six games despite St. Louis winning the first two. The St. Louis Blues will have the home ice advantage in this crucial game 7 while the Blackhawks have more experience which may be more valuable in this game. The Blues had the lead several times at critical points in this series and have been unable to put away the hungry Blackhawks squad.
The home team has won every game in this series. Regardless of who wins this game 7, they will be the new favorite in the west where the Dallas Stars are already waiting. The Stars dispatched the Minnesota Wild after 6 games in their first round series. The Blues are capable of shutting out the Blackhawks as they did in game one at home. The Blues will need to repeat that magic here in game seven if they want to play another game this season.
