Chicago Looks To Dig The Hole Deeper

Chicago Blackhawks @ Los Angeles Kings – Thursday Game 4 (Chicago leads 2-1)

The online sports books have been hearing for a couple of days now that the Los Angeles Kings had to give everything they had just to win game three of the NHL Western Conference finals. If the Kings left it all on the ice in game three, then what could be left for game four? The truth is that Los Angeles plays a grinding style of hockey that just looks like the team has nothing left when the game is over. The truth is that the Kings will have plenty in the tank when the puck drops in game four.

The Chicago Blackhawks will be without defenseman Duncan Keith and he sits out his suspension for his high stick to the face of Jeff Carter. The betting sites are unsure if Carter will play in game four, but if Carter plays then that can offer a significant advantage to the Kings when the puck drops. Players and fans can debate the high stick all they want, but the NHL has spoken. The incident was heinous enough to warrant a suspension from a game in the Western Conference finals and it is a suspension that will hurt the Chicago Blackhawks.

Why the Kings Will Win

The Los Angeles Kings are undefeated at home in these playoffs and that is for good reason. The Kings play a stronger defensive style at home, which is exactly why Los Angeles was able to slow down the Blackhawks in game three. The only problem is that Los Angeles does not seem to be able to take that intensity on the road with them, which is where Los Angeles has only won one game in these playoffs. In game four, the Kings look to take advantage of home ice and a timely suspension.

Why the Blackhawks Will Win

The sports betting experts see the tide kind of turning on the Chicago Blackhawks in this series as game four poses some considerable challenges for Chicago. The Blackhawks will have to try and maintain their strong defensive presence without Duncan Keith and that will not be easy. Goaltender Corey Crawford has been playing with an attitude lately as well and that is not good for his concentration. This game four will be a serious test for the Chicago Blackhawks and their ability to dethrone the Kings.

The Bottom Line

The Blackhawks would love to go home with a 3-1 lead in this series, but things may not work out as Chicago would hope. The Los Angeles Kings have a little momentum on their side and the injury to Jeff Carter has given the Kings a battle cry as well. The last thing any team wants to do is inspire the Los Angeles Kings. With momentum on their side, the Kings will be very tough to beat in game four.

Pick: Los Angeles Kings
