The Chicago Blackhawks and the Carolina Hurricanes meet in NHL action from the PNC Arena on Friday night.
The Chicago Blackhawks come into this one looking to add to a 2-0 win over Detroit in their last matchup. Patrick Kane leads the Blackhawks in scoring with 23 points coming on 7 goals and 16 assists while Alex DeBrincat has 17 points with 9 goals and 8 assists. Dominik Kubalik has 14 points with 5 goals and 9 assists while Mattias Janmark and Pius Suter each have 10 points with 6 goals and 4 assists on the year. Kevin Lankinen continues to lead the way for Chicago’s goaltending group, posting 7 wins and a shutout with a 2.29 GAA this season.
The Carolina Hurricanes will be out to keep their hot start going as well despite a 4-3 loss to Florida last time out. Jordan Staal leads the Hurricanes in scoring with 15 points coming on 7 goals and 8 assists while Vincent Trocheck, Sebastian Aho and Andrei Svechnikov each have 14 points with Trocheck posting 7 goals and 7 assists while Svechnikov has 6 goals and 8 helpers and Aho has 5 goals with 9 assists Dougie Hamilton and Brock McGinn each have 10 points with Hamilton logging 9 assists and McGinn posting 7 goals as well this year. James Reimer continues to thrive in the starting role for the ‘Canes in goal, going 7-1 with a 3.10 GAA in 8 appearances this season.
Chicago is 6-1 in their last 7 games overall and 4-0 in their last 4 road games while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall. Carolina is 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 9-3 in their last 12 games overall while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games as a favorite. Chicago is 1-6 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams in Carolina.
Both of these teams have been solid lately, and both have had their runs because of really good goaltending. With that said, there’s still a ton of goal-scoring ability within these two teams and you have to feel that both teams are due for a defensive clunker here so I’m going to back the over in this spot.
