Randy’s Free Pick
I’m not running to the window to back either of these bottom feeders, but somebody has to win. The Ducks are on the end of a back to back, don’t win on the road, and they’ve had no recent success against the Blackhawks. The Chicago Blackhawks have a clear rest advantage, and they’re far better defensively. Give me the home team.
