Blackhawks vs. Hurricanes Prediction

I’m backing Carolina -1.5 here. It’s not always pretty backing a heavy favorite and Chicago has some confidence after their big win, but this is still the Chicago Blackhawks we’re talking about here. Carolina’s the far better team here and have played the far better hockey up to this point and have owned the recent matchups with Chicago. Give me Carolina in a beatdown.

 

Chris’s Pick Carolina -1.5
