Coming off a 3-2 loss to Boston, the Chicago Blackhawks head on the road to Colorado to take on the Avalanche.
Colorado, coming off a 5-2 loss to Minnesota, will look for a win at home against the Western Conference’s official top seed for the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Chicago has officially clinched the Central Division and the top seed in the Western Conference. The Blackhawks have been fantastic all season, winning 50 games thus far.
The team is 2-2-1 in the last five games, and is coming off a tough loss to Boston.
The defense and goaltending continue to be solid for Chicago. Corey Crawford will be in net for this game and his season has been great. He is 32-17-3 with a 2.51 goals against average.
He’s been an important reason why the Blackhawks rank in the top 10 in goals against for the season.
Offensively, the team has been getting great performances from Artemi Panarin. Panarin has 29 goals and 43 assists, including five goals and an assist in his last five games.
The Colorado Avalanche rank dead last in both goals scored and goals against so it’s no wonder why the team has only 21 wins on the season.
The Avalanche have lost eight of the last nine games, all in regulation, and have points in just two of the last 12 games. Don’t expect much better from the Avs on Tuesday night.
Colorado has a minus-90 goal differential on the season and doesn’t have many skaters who can get things done on either end of the ice.
Matt Duchene has been good this year, with 17 goals and 20 assists. However, he doesn’t have a single point over his last five games.
NHL Betting Trends:
- The UNDER is 3-2-1 in Chicago’s last six games
- Colorado is 2-8 SU in the last 10 games
Free Chicago Blackhawks vs. Colorado Avalanche NHL Hockey Prediction:
Chicago is better in every aspect on the ice. The Blackhawks shouldn’t have much trouble in this one and should skate away with the W.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Chicago ATS
I can’t imagine this will be a difficult game for Chicago. Colorado is extremely poor on both ends of the ice. The Blackhawks should cover the spread here.
