The Blackhawks have stumbled out of the gate a bit to start the 2019/20 NHL season but they may catch a break on Tuesday.
Chicago is still a home underdog here, but they get Vegas on the 2nd leg of a back-to-back after the Golden Knights were in Philadelphia on Monday night.
Vegas Golden Knights
It’s kind of disrespectful to Chicago that Vegas is a road favorite on Tuesday. This is especially true as the Golden Knights lost 2-6 at Philadelphia on Monday night.
Prior to the loss to the Flyers, Vegas had been playing like a team worthy of being a road favorite in this matchup. The Golden Knights had won 4 of 5, and are 3-1-0 on the road this season.
Vegas has shown some offensive spark, scoring at least 4 goals in 4 of their first 6 games. After the loss to the Flyers,the Golden Knights have now been held to 3 goals or less in 4 straight games.
Playing on a back-to-back not only puts the defense in a tired mode, it also burns up Vegas’ top goaltender. The Golden Knights decided to go with Oscar Dansk vs. Philadelphia though.
Dansk’s start on Wednesday means Marc-Andre Fleury is ready to go at the United Center. The veteran netminder is 6-2 on the year and has held opponents to 2 goals or less in 5 of the last 6 games.
Chicago is in a prime spot to get the upset win at +112 with Vegas being on the back-to-back. The Blackhawks could use a win after falling to the Capitals 3-5 on Sunday.
Since a season opening loss to the Flyers in Prague, Chicago has played 5 straight games at home but is just 2-2-1 to show for it. For all the potential in the ‘Hawks offense, they’ve scored more than 3 goals just once in a game this year.
The Golden Knights rested their top line goaltender on Monday night but Chicago is still trying to find out who there’s is.
By all accounts, it should be Corey Crawford in net for Chicago in this one. ‘Over’ bettors like to hear that news as Crawford has allowed at least 4 goals in 3 of 4 starts this year and posts a save percentage of only .891.
