Chicago Blackhawks      

The Blackhawks enter this Wednesday night matchup sporting a 26-28-9 record that nets them 61 points on the season. In addition, it ranks them dead last in the Central Division. With the end of the NHL hockey betting season in sight, it’s abundantly clear that Chicago will not be joining this year’s Stanley Cup race. Nevertheless, Chicago can still take to the ice tonight to try to pick up this road win over Anaheim. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear this will be an interesting matchup. At the present time Chicago ranks 7th in scoring and 30th in defense. On the flip side, Anaheim ranks 31st in scoring but 17th in defense. All in all there’s no telling how this one will turn out.

Players to Watch: Patrick Kane (39 G, 54 A, 93 PTS), Jonathan Toews (29 G, 35 A, 64 PTS), and Alex DeBrincat (34 G, 28 A, 62 PTS).

Anaheim Ducks

The Ducks swim into this evening’s contest with a 24-30-9 record. That lackluster record net the team a total of 57 points on the season, which ranks them second to last in the Pacific. Clearly things aren’t turning out the way Anaheim was hoping for. The only question is, will they be able to make a home stand against Chicago this evening? The numbers don’t paint a clear picture here and tonight’s odds are sticking with Chicago. This is likely due to the fact that the Blackhawks can find the net quite often while the Ducks wield the worst offense in the league. However, Anaheim is 6-3-1 in their last 10 versus Chicago so there is a chance they get it done.

Players to Watch: Ryan Getzlaf (11 G, 28 A, 39 PTS), Adam Henrique (12 G, 20 A, 32 PTS), and Rickard Rakell (9 G, 17 A, 26 PTS).
