The Winnipeg Jets and the Chicago Blackhawks meet in NHL action from the United Center on Sunday night.
The Winnipeg Jets will look to build on a 5-4 OT win over Dallas last time out. Josh Morrissey leads Winnipeg with 16 assists as part of his team-high 20 points while Kyle Connor has 17 points with 7 goals and 10 assists and Mark Scheifele has 14 points with a team-high 10 goals so far this season.

Connor Hellebuyck has gone 9-5-1 with a 2.46 GAA and a .926 save percentage while David Rittich is 3-1 with a 2.77 GAA and an .890 save percentage between the pipes for Winnipeg this season.
The Chicago Blackhawks will hope to snap a six-game losing skid after a 3-2 shootout loss to Montreal last time out. Patrick Kane leads Chicago with 16 points coming with a team-high 13 assists while Jonathan Toews has 13 points with a team-high 8 goals. Max Domi also has 14 points with 5 goals and 9 assists as well this season. Petr Mrazek has gone 1-4-1 with a 3.86 GAA and an .885 save percentage while Alex Stalock is 3-2-1 with a 2.93 GAA and a .914 save percentage in goal for Chicago this season.
Winnipeg is 6-1 in their last 7 division games and 10-4 in their last 14 games overall while the under is 6-0 in their last 6 games against a team with a losing record. Chicago is 19-45 in their last 64 games overall and 12-42 in their last 54 division games while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 Sunday games.
I get the case to be made for a home underdog in spots and the Jets haven’t been great on the road. However the Blackhawks haven’t really been good anywhere as of late and I don’t trust them to keep the puck out of the net we’re at that point. I just think the Jets are the better team and going into Chicago, find a way to get the win so give me the Jets here.
