The Chicago Blackhawks continue to overachieve and cash tickets in the underdog role, and oddsmakers keep throwing out these favorable prices. The Dallas Stars are the better team on paper, but they've lost 11 of their last 13 games and they're currently the fourth least profitable team in the sport. You're getting killed up to this point if you've been backing the Stars all season. I'll take the Blackhawks and the plus money.
