* The Blackhawks beat the Islanders, 5-4, in Brooklyn on Thursday, their third-straight win and fifth-straight game getting a point. It was the fourth time this season they’ve scored five or more goals this season. Last season, they had 13 such games.

* The Blues beat the Devils, 5-2, in St. Louis on Thursday, improving to 13-1-3 at home this season, the best home record in the Western Conference. They’ve earned at least one point in 14 straight home games, by far the longest active streak – Carolina has the second-longest at seven games.

* These teams have split their two meetings this season, with the road team getting the win in each – St. Louis picked up a 5-2 win in Chicago on the opening night of the season, and the Blackhawks went into St. Louis in November and got a 2-1 overtime win.

* Artemi Panarin had a “Gordie Howe Hat Trick” the last time these teams played, assisting on a goal in the second period, getting a fighting major in the third, and scoring the game-winner in overtime. Panarin has five points in seven career games against St. Louis.

* Panarin’s fellow countryman Vladimir Tarasenko has continued to stay hot as well, notching a goal and two assists in the win over New Jersey. He has a five-game point streak, with multiple points in three of those games. Tarasenko has 17 points in 17 career games against the Blackhawks.

* Neither team has been great this season when it comes to shorthanded goals – Chicago and St. Louis join Buffalo as the only teams in the league yet to score a shorthanded goal this season. The Blackhawks have allowed five shorthanded goals, third-most in the league, and the Blues have allowed four, tied for fourth-most.
