The Chicago Blackhawks look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Chicago Blackhawks are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 14.5 percent of their power play opportunities. Patrick Kane leads Chicago with eight goals, Erik Gustafsson has four assists and Alex DeBrincat has 49 shots on goal. Defensively, the Chicago Blackhawks are allowing three goals per game and are killing 79.3 percent of their opponents power plays. Corey Crawford has given up 26 goals on 273 shots faced and Robin Lehner has allowed 23 goals on 350 shots. The Chicago Blackhawks have allowed three or more goals in seven of their last 10 games.
The Vegas Golden Knights also need a win after losing five of their last six games. The Vegas Golden Knights are averaging 2.9 goals per game and are scoring on 21.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Reilly Smith leads Vegas with 10 goals, William Karlsson has 12 assists and Max Pacioretty has 77 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vegas Golden Knights are allowing 2.9 goals per game and are killing 88.7 percent of their opponents power plays. Marc-Andre Fleury has given up 36 goals on 452 shots faced and Malcolm Subban has allowed 11 goals on 109 shots. The Vegas Golden Knights have allowed three or more goals in five of their last eight games.
The Blackhawks are 10-4 in their last 14 games playing on 2 days rest, 21-43 in their last 64 road games and 6-20 in their last 26 games as an underdog. The Golden Knights are 12-5 in their last 17 games playing on 2 days rest, 1-6 in their last 7 vs. Central and 1-5 in their last 6 overall. The under is 5-1 in Blackhawks last 6 road games. The over is 3-0-1 in Golden Knights last 4 home games. The Blackhawks are 0-7 in the last 7 meetings. The over is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.
The Vegas Golden Knights have won all seven meetings against the Blackhawks and should love their chances to keep that undefeated record intact. The Chicago Blackhawks just can't get out of their own way thanks to an offense that can't score and a defense that allows the most shot attempts per game in the league. The Vegas Golden Knights are also much better at home and are usually impressive as a home favorite. Because of the steep price, I'll take the Golden Knights and the PL for added value.
