The home team came back Tuesday but got smothered by the visiting Vegas Golden Knights, 4-0.

Chicago Blackhawks vs Edmonton Oilers 02/09/2022 Betting Odds:
The year has been hostile for the Blackhawks to say the least. The team currently possesses the second-worst record in the Central Division and the third-worst record in the Western Conference. Chicago managed to win just a single game in their last eight games before the All-Star break, the last of which was a 0-5 destruction in favor of the Minnesota Wild. Coach Derek King says his team remains hopeful as they begin the second half of the season. Following Tuesday’s practice, King said the goal is to “believe and have some hope.” Coming back from the deep hole is a huge challenge for the Blackhawks, but the team remains ready to go out and play. “Let’s be good pros and see where this goes,” KIng added.
Players to watch: P. Kane RW (G 11, A 31, PTS 42), A. DeBrincat LW (G 26, A 10, PTS 36), S. Jones D (G 3, A 26, PTS 29).
The first game coming off the break was not an ideal one, especially for a team that is on a hunt for a playoff spot. The Oilers returned Tuesday, at home, but got stunned by the Vegas Golden Knights. It was a painful result, but the team will be forced not to dwell on the heartbreak as the Oilers are set to host the Blackhawks for the second of a back-to-back. After the recent loss, Edmonton is left in search of answers. Forwards Zach Hymen and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins were not shy to call out their lackluster performance, saying that it was a “sloppy game” and that “lack of execution” cost them the important game. An immediate bounce back could make up for the bad loss. Home fans can expect a better effort from their team this time.
Players to watch: L. Draisaitl C (G 32, A 31, PTS 63), C. McDavid C (G 23, A 37, PTS 60), R. Nugent-Hopkins C (G 6, A 27, PTS 33).
