The Blues didn’t play very good yesterday and the question is for today are they in cruise control until the playoffs start or are they going to be out for some revenge after the way they played yesterday and the 4-0 loss they suffered by the hands of the Blackhawk mid March at the United Center.

The Blackhawks will be far from full strength but that hasn’t stopped them from simplifying their game and picking up 4 points in the last two games. Look for more of the same in this late morning start from the UC.

Last Game Prediction– I had Patrick Sharp picking up a goal (Check) and the Hawks “somehow pulling out a victory in the end” (Check- I’m pretty sure scoring a goal with 3.7 seconds left falls into that category) while i had a one goal win right too. So, overall after losing my predicting skills for a couple of weeks I feel like they are slowly coming back.

Today’s Prediction– This will be a hard hitting Central Division slug fest with the Hawks continuing to throw out the youngsters and watching them produce! Look for both Ben Smith and Jeremy Morin to extend their point streaks and Bryan Bickell to pick up a goal in front of Brian Elliott.
