NHL OPENING WEEKEND TOP PLAY #2
Chicago Blackhawks (32-30-8) at Edmonton Oilers (37-25-9)
A lot of people are predicting a Blackhawks upset over the Oilers in the series, and if you told me that a few years ago I would’ve believed you instead of giving you the crazy look. Edmonton’s as good as advertised this season and I’m sure the league’s best power play unit in Edmonton will get to Chicago here as the Blackhawks don’t have a ton going outside of Toews and Kane and the goaltending for Chicago is as suspect as it gets. Give me Edmonton -1.5 to start this series with a bang.
