There seems to be value in any line that oddsmakers give Vegas on Thursday night. First of all the Golden Knights are at home where they were one of the best teams in the NHL a year ago and off to a solid 8-3 start this season. Beyond that, Vegas is playing the Blackhawks who not only have lost 6 of their last 7 games but also play this contest in Sin City on the second leg of a back-to-back.
One of the pitfalls about playing two games in two nights is that Chicago will send their backup goaltender Cam Ward to the ice Thursday. Then again that may give Chicago an advantage the way Corey Crawford has been playing lately. Ward is 2-3-4 in his last 9 decisions whereas Crawford has dropped 6 straight games. Overall Chicago has allowed 4+ scores in 6 of the last 7.
What’s rough for Chicago getting in a high scoring shootout is a) they’re fatigued and b) their offense simply isn’t up to the challenge. The Blackhawks have been held to 2 goals or less in 6 of the last 10 games. Patrick Kane has scored just 1 goal in his last 10 games and Chicago is up against Vegas’ top 10 defense in this matchup.
Vegas Golden Knights
Vegas met up with Chicago at the United Center four games ago and promptly came away with an 8-3 blowout win. Six different Golden Knights players scored in that game and there’s nothing to think they can’t do it again. Vegas has won 6 of their last 7 and has netted 4+ goals in 4 of the last 5.
The Golden Knights have also had a night off before this contest and will have their main man Marc-Andre Fleury in net. Fleury has notched a win in 7 of the last 8 and has two shutouts over that span. The Blackhawks have the absolute worst PP offense in the league so it should be another solid night for the Vegas defense.

Free Chicago Blackhawks vs. Vegas Golden Knights NHL Prediction:
There’s nothing that could make Chicago an appealing bet in Thursday night’s game. The Blackhawks are having a hard time scoring and give up the most goals in the league – not a great combo. The price is going to be high on Vegas but this is the Golden Knights game to win even on a bad night.
