Match: Chicago vs Nashville
Odds: William Hill 1.95
The Blackhawks came out firing at Joe Louis Arena and by the end of the first period they were already three points ahead and never let go. The Red Wings barely scored in the final seconds despite having one of the most inform offenses in the Western Conference. For Chicago all lines were equally effective upfront, but the back line is the one that will give the Predators shivers down their spine.
Nashville is mired in a losing streak that saw them scoring very few goals while conceding a lot and they have recently lost another game without scoring. If Colorado found a way to shut them down, it is easy to imagine what the Blackhawks who would accomplish when they have home ice advantage. Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews are red hot and both of them have scored in the previous game between the two teams. Back then Chicago emerged victorious by three goals to none and the game was played in Nashville where the local team has an excellent track record.
