NHL Picks: Chicago Blackhawks at Pittsburgh Penguins
Again we find ourselves betting into home ice advantage and the right to last change, but again, I like the matchup and have high confidence in the Blackhawks. Chicago is one of the best teams in hockey. The Penguins are stumbling and lost in overtime just one night ago to their intra-state rivals.
I don’t see the Penguins bouncing back so easily. They’re sloppy defensively and without Letang here, while the Blackhawks have one of the deepest rosters in hockey and have for some time. Chicago had a travel day to prepare for this one.
Chicago is the better team, Pittsburgh is sloppy lately and vulnerable, and there’s value in the line. While the computer doesn’t necessarily support us here, it’s my play for the night.
Blackhawks 3 – Penguins 2
