Chicago Blackhawks vs Boston Bruins 02/05/2020 Betting Odds:
Chicago Blackhawks attempted to pull off a rally on Tuesday against Minnesota but fell short and lost in OT, 3-2. But while it resulted in a defeat, Chicago still brought home something to cheer about. The goals scored the last timeout played a huge role in fanning their chances for the next round’s contention. The team will look to rediscover the fire it had before hitting the break when they registered five straight wins. Patrick Kane is expected to spearhead their attack on ice with Jonathan Toews and Dominik Kubalik providing the support.
Players to watch: Patrick Kane (GP 53, G 25, A 40, PTS 65), Jonathan Toews (GP 53, G 14, A 30, PTS 44), Dominik Kubalik (GP 51, G 21, A 11, PTS 32).
The Bruins trounced Vancouver in their last game, 4-0, to notch their fourth straight win. The surge also puts them just a point behind Washington Capitals for the Presidents’ Trophy contest. Brad Marchand scored his 23rd goal of the season on Tuesday while David Pastrnak stays as the club’s leader in points with 75. The latest win also marked Boston’s eighth win in 11 games. And as the regular season reaches its home stretch, expect the Bruins to unleash more firepower as they set their sights into the Stanley Cup.
Players to watch: David Pastrnak (GP 54, G 38, A 37, PTS 75), Brad Marchand (GP 54, G 23, A 46, PTS 69), Patrice Bergeron (GP 45, G 22, A 21, PTS 43).
