Through 50 games, the New Jersey Devils' leading goal scorer is Jack Hughes. With his 16 assists, he is the second in overall points, coming in at 30. On the season, he is turning 14.3% of his shots into goals. In addition, the Devils have benefited from the strong play of Jesper Bratt, who is the team's overall leader in points. In New Jersey's 50 games, he has come up with 14 goals on a shooting percentage of 11.6%. However, when on the ice, the Devils are -3.0 in scoring differential. New Jersey's top goalie is Mackenzie Blackwood, who is giving up an average of 3.29 goals per game.

Through 52 games, Chicago's leading goal scorer is Alex DeBrincat. With his 29 goals and 13 assists, he is the second in overall points, coming in at 42. On the season, he is turning 17.8% of his shots into goals. In addition, the Blackhawks have benefited from the strong play of Patrick Kane, who is the team's overall leader in points. In Chicago's 52 games, he has come up with 13 goals on a shooting percentage of 7.2%. However, when on the ice, the Blackhawks are -17 in scoring differential. Chicago's top goalie is Marc-Andre Fleury, who is giving up an average of 2.8 goals per game. In his 38 games played, he has turned in 21 quality starts, giving him a quality start percentage above the league average.

Look for this to be a low-scoring game as both teams struggle to score outside of power play. So far, both the Devils and Blackhawks are below the NHL average in shot attempts per game. In addition, each unit struggles to convert on their limited opportunites. I recommend taking the under at 5.5 goals.
