The over is 4-1-1 in Blackhawks last 6 road games. The under is 4-1 in Rangers last 5 vs. Central. The Blackhawks are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in New York.

The Chicago Blackhawks are playing winning hockey right now, but they’ve had major issues on the road dating back to last season, and they haven’t had much success against winning teams. The New York Rangers may be on the end of a back to back, but they’re on fire right now, and a lot of these recent wins have come on their home ice. I’ll side with the hot hand and take the PL for max betting value.
