Red Wings Welcome Blackhawks To Town With The Streak A Thing Of The Past

Posted by Don Melrose on 3/28/2013 5:45:27 PM

The Detroit Red Wings nearly got the best of the Chicago Blackhawks during their incredible run to start the season. Now that the Blackhawks’ point streak is over and done with, maybe Detroit will finally get that elusive online betting win. The Red Wings dropped a 2-1 overtime loss to Chicago in late January, and then squandered a late lead against them in early March for a 2-1 shootout loss. With two more meetings between them Detroit is hoping they can get an important two points against the Blackhawks, and move one step closer to locking up a playoff spot.

The Red Wings are already 14 points back of Chicago in the Western Conference standings, and there isn’t enough time to think they can close that gap. That leaves Detroit focused on the fourth spot in the standings, and the chance to at least open the first round of the playoffs with home ice advantage.

NHL Betting Preview: Chicago Blackhawks

The Blackhawks have been as good on the road as they have been at home this season, and it’s impossible to argue against the numbers that they have put up. The fact that Chicago ranks second in goals per game and second in goals per game allowed is absolutely incredible, and there aren’t many teams in the league that could come even close to rivaling that dominance. Special teams have been key to the Blackhawks’ ability to keep their goals against down, as they rank seventh on the penalty-kill. Patrick Kane has led the way for Chicago with 17 goals and 41 points, and it’s impossible to forget his game-tying goal and shootout winner the last time these teams met.

The Red Wings came so close to ending the Blackhawks’ point streak the last time these teams met that they had to be shaking their heads by the time that game ended, possibly in disbelief of the fact that Chicago managed another improbable comeback. Detroit has played its best hockey on home ice this sports betting season, and after back-to-back road wins over the Anaheim Ducks they have to be feeling confident. Jimmy Howard has held down the fort in net despite a suspect defense in front of him, and his 2.37 goals against average has him ranked in the league’s top-10.

NHL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Howard has been excellent for Detroit all season, and he nearly shut out Chicago the last time these teams met before Kane scored a late goal to keep the streak alive. That streak is over now, and Red Wings’ fans are hoping that means they will finally be able to get that elusive win against the Blackhawks after being snake-bitten so far this season.
