Ducks, Blackhawks Clash To See Who Is Really The Best In The NHL

Chicago Blackhawks @ Anaheim Ducks – Wednesday February 5, 2014

There are the Blackhawks and the Ducks, and then there is the rest of the NHL. The NHL betting experts say this coming from the Ducks last season when Anaheim made a late dash for the top of the NHL standings. The Ducks were still bouncing back and forth between goaltenders Viktor Fasth and Jonas Hiller, but it looks like Hiller keeps his starting job and makes Fasth trade bait for teams in need of a quality goalie. This season, the Ducks are the team to beat and Anaheim would love to take out the Blackhawks right before the Olympic break just to put an exclamation point at the end of the first half of the season.

The online sports book experts all said that the Chicago Blackhawks would be competitive again in 2013-14 because this is the exact same Blackhawks team that won the Stanley Cup last season. So far, the Blackhawks have not disappointed anyone as they have put themselves in a neck and neck battle with the Anaheim Ducks for first overall in the entire league. The Blackhawks helped to make it easier for teams to aspire for the President’s Trophy when Chicago won the President’s Trophy and the Stanley Cup last season. Now it looks like the two best teams in the league are getting ready for a regular season showdown that actually means something, even in February.

Anaheim Ducks

The Ducks are not the highest scoring team in the league and they do not have the best defense in the NHL either. Anaheim has solid goaltending and veteran players who know when to score key goals that win games. The Ducks also have head coach Bruce Boudreau who has the players in Anaheim that he always wanted in Washington. The sports betting experts expected Boudreau to find success in Anaheim because his style is a perfect fit for the Anaheim roster. Now Boudreau and the Ducks get to find out just how good the team is as it goes head to head with the reigning Stanley Cup champions.

Chicago Blackhawks

Once again, the Chicago Blackhawks are the highest scoring team in the NHL and they are winning games without much regard for defense. Under normal circumstances, teams that have no regard for defense do not win Stanley Cups. But there is something relentless about the Blackhawks that makes them so very effective. In this game, Chicago gets to show just how powerful its offense is when it tries to break the wall set up by Jonas Hiller.

The Bottom Line

This game will be fast-paced and physical. Both of these teams like to charge from the front of the opposition net, and neither team likes to skate around the opposition. Each side has talented goal scorers and amazing puck handlers. This will be a high-scoring game and it should fall on the side of the champs.

Pick: Chicago Blackhawks
