The Line: Chicago Blackhawks -187 / Edmonton Oilers +168 --- Over/Under: 5 See the Latest Odds
The Oilers head into the United Center on Sunday look to snap their losing ways in the Windy City while the home side will look to find their groove with an inspired effort.
The Edmonton Oilers suffered another tough loss at home in their last outing as they dropped a 2-1 decision to the Pittsburgh Penguins and while they did play well, the team can ill afford moral victories at this point as echoed by Todd MacLellan. Edmonton hasn't had a great track record in Chicago but could take advantage of a Hawks team who hasn't been playing the greatest of late and is still without the heart and soul of their blue line.

The Chicago Blackhawks head into Sunday's action with the Edmonton Oilers looking to shake off a loss and break out of their funk of mediocrity that has plagued over the last few weeks. The Hawks have looked like Cup contenders once again on some nights but have also looked like a group without much direction on other but with Jonathan Toews in the fold and so much fire power the Hawks aren't too far off from getting back into the fold. However, this Oilers group is a bit different and I think they will give the Hawks a run here in what should be a close game and in that circumstance I think we lock into the under here.
