The Vegas Golden Knights and Chicago Blackhawks meet Tuesday in NHL action at the United Center.
The Vegas Golden Knights could use a win here after splitting their last eight games. The Vegas Golden Knights are averaging 3.4 goals per game and are scoring on 30 percent of their power play opportunities. Mark Stone leads Vegas with six goals, Max Pacioretty has eight assists and Jonathan Marchessault has 31 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vegas Golden Knights are allowing 2.3 goals per game and are killing 94.3 percent of their opponents power plays. Marc-Andre Fleury has given up 19 goals on 287 shots faced and Malcolm Subban has allowed two goals on 14 shots. The Vegas Golden Knights have allowed four or more goals in four of their last eight games.
The Chicago Blackhawks need a win here after losing four of their first six games. The Chicago Blackhawks are averaging three goals per game and are scoring on 23.1 percent of their power play opportunities. Patrick Kane leads Chicago with three goals, Erik Gustafsson has four assists and Alex DeBrincat has 17 shots on goal. Defensively, the Chicago Blackhawks are allowing three goals per game and are killing 70.6 percent of their opponents power plays. Corey Crawford has given up 14 goals on 129 shots faced and Robin Lehner has allowed five goals on 72 shots. The Chicago Blackhawks have allowed three or more goals in four of their first six games.
The Golden Knights are 4-0 in their last 4 games as a favorite, 12-5 in their last 17 games as a road favorite and 0-6 in their last 6 Tuesday games. The Blackhawks are 2-5 in their last 7 overall, 8-21 in their last 29 games as a home underdog and 0-4 in their last 4 games as an underdog. The under is 4-0 in Golden Knights last 4 overall. The over is 45-18-4 in Blackhawks last 67 overall. The over is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings.
The Vegas Golden Knights have won all six meetings against the Chicago Blackhawks and have scored no less than four goals in all of those contests. The Chicago Blackhawks may have the rest advantage here, but they also continue to have issues defensively and don't look much different than they were last year. The Vegas Golden Knights have been money as road favorites dating back to last season and have shown improvement on defense as of late. I'll lay the reasonable price with Vegas on the road.
