The Chicago Blackhawks look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 13 games. The Chicago Blackhawks are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 21.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Patrick Kane leads Chicago with 39 goals, Jonathan Toews has 35 assists and Alex DeBrincat has 176 shots on goal.

The Stars are 28-62 in their last 90 games playing on 0 days rest, 15-36 in their last 51 Sunday games and 1-4 in their last 5 road games. The Blackhawks are 4-0 in their last 4 games as a favorite, 6-2 in their last 8 home games and 10-3 in their last 13 overall. The Stars are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings and the over is 19-7-1 in the last 27 meetings in Chicago. The under is 31-14-6 in Stars last 51 overall. The over is 34-14-4 in Blackhawks last 52 overall.
The Dallas Stars have cooled off rather quickly and have a quick turnaround after getting shutout yesterday against the Carolina Hurricanes. The Stars have now been shutout in three of their last five games. The Chicago Blackhawks still have issues when it comes to keeping the puck out of the back of the net, but they're finding ways to win behind an explosive offense and have actually been one of the hottest teams this month. I'll take the hotter, more rested team at home for the cheap price. The Stars look nothing like the team they were a few weeks ago.
