Florida Panthers at Chicago Blackhawks
Tuesday, January 21, 2020 at 8:30 PM (United Center)
CHI -118 O:U 6.5
The Florida Panthers go to Chicago, Illinois, to take on the Chicago Blackhawks at the United Center on Tuesday. The Panthers are on a roll, as they are on a four-game winning streak. The Panthers have scored at least four goals in each of their last four games, and have outscored their opponents 21-10 during their win streak. The Florida Panthers are playing a back to back, playing the Minnesota Wild on Monday and then the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday.
The Panthers are 26-16-5 on the season and are third in the Atlantic Division with 57 points. Florida has a great offense, as they have scored the fifth-most goals in the NHL this season.
The Chicago Blackhawks are on a five-game winning streak, scoring 22 goals in their winning streak. The Blackhawks have won seven of their last ten games as well.
The Chicago Blackhawks are 24-20-6 on the season and are attempting to claw their way back up the standings after having a poor start to the season. The Blackhawks are playing terrific right now, in large part to Patrick Kane, who has 62 points this season.
Florida is 24-23 ATS this season
Panthers are 4-0 in their last four games playing on 0 days rest.
Chicago is 29-21 ATS this season
Blackhawks are 6-20 in their last 26 games playing on one day's rest.
This is a matchup of two teams playing some of their best hockey of the season. Both sides are on a roll, but there are some concerns for the Panthers as they're starting goalkeeper Sergei Bobrovsky may not be playing in this game. Also, the Panthers are 1-7 in the last eight meetings in Chicago, and 7-19-2 in the previous 28 meetings against the Blackhawks. I think the Blackhawks are playing too well to see them stop, and the combination of Bobrovsky being out and Chicago playing at home, I see the Chicago Blackhawks win this game close. Final Score Prediction, Chicago Blackhawks win 4-3.
