Chicago Blackhawks vs Carolina Hurricanes 05/06/2021 Betting Odds:
Chicago’s play looked promising during the early moments of the last game against the Hurricanes. But failure to sustain their defense has allowed the hosts to come back, eventually sending them reeling to their sixth straight loss. There was no significant effect whatsoever to the Blackhawks’ current position after the loss. The team has since lost their chance to make it to the playoffs, no thanks to the running slide. But that does not mean the Chicago Blackhawks are already content in just showing up. Coach Jeremy Colliton knows their situation is not close to their aspiration but he preaches patience, saying that his team has to learn lessons the hard way. Led by Alex DeBrincat and Patrick Kane, the Blackhawks will still compete and try to cap their season with more respectable results.
Players to watch: P. Kane RW (G 15 A 49 PTS 64), A. DeBrincat LW (G 28 A 23 PTS 51), D. Kubalik LW (G 17 A 18 PTS 35).
Not only did the Hurricanes secure a playoff spot, but the team likewise is assured of a home-ice advantage at least in the first round of the postseason. Despite this, it appears that Carolina has no plans of letting go of the gas pedal. After all, it’s all about playing the right way according to Jaccob Slavin, who added that being in an early playoff mode is essential in order for them to keep the same type of top-notch hockey when the more crucial games in the later rounds take place. The Hurricanes have extended their winning streak to six and are looking to punctuate the regular season without any attempt to cool off. They will try to fix the apparent holes in their game when they play their last regular-season game inside the PNC Arena. One thing to address is the slow start they had on Tuesday that saw them trail by as many as two goals in the first period before finding their groove and eventually win the game convincingly.
Players to watch: S. Aho RW (G 24 A 33 PTS 57), V. Trocheck C (G 17 A 26 PTS 43), A. Svechnikov RW (G 15 A 27 PTS 42).
