Forget what you just saw in game one, a 6-4 Blackhawks win, and know that both teams will make adjustments to tighten this series defensively. Too often bettors just take into account the score of the last game and think nothing will be different moving forward.
Mikko Koskinen will get the start for Edmonton after the Hawks chased Mike Smith in game one. Koskinen is better than Smith in my opinion, with the numbers bearing that out.
The Hawks will be shorthanded with Drake Caggiula serving a one-game suspension after a hit on Tyler Ennis, hurting Chicago's depth on the 3rd line.
Chicago's focus should be keeping the Oilers off the Power Play where they scored three of their goals in game one.
Tonight will be a different story. Take the UNDER for the win.
