Arizona Coyotes vs Chicago Blackhawks prediction

I'm not running to the window to back the Chicago Blackhawks as much as the next guy, as they're arguably the worst team in all of hockey. However, the Arizona Coyotes aren't lighting the world on fire themselves, as their season has been over as well. The Coyotes are also 10-17-5 on the road and lost 5-2 to the Blackhawks at home less than a week ago. The Blackhawks have seen 11 of their 15 wins this season come at home. I get the Coyotes have been the better team this season, but the bottom line is both teams are going nowhere fast. Give me the home dog if forced to pick.
