Detroit imposed a tight fight against Chicago in the last match, but will they be able to play the next match, which will take place on 17 February? Look for the answer in prediction.
Chicago are the real king of extra time, as they have finished the last four games out of five outside 60 minutes and won in each case. Let us emphasize that the team was defeated only by Columbus with a score of 5: 6, and in the return meeting it celebrated the victory – 3: 2.
In the previous game against Detroit, the victory for the Hawks was brought by Dominik Kubalik, who eventually scored a double. Malcolm Subban also had to work hard, because the goalkeeper reflected a total of 27 shots. Oddly enough, Joel Quenneville’s squad has trouble offensively when playing away and averages just two goals per game.
Detroit Red Wings
Detroit is still at the bottom of the Central Division table, but may soon move up to seventh position and overtake Nashville on points. Note that not long ago Wings beat Predators 4: 2 away.
Also, Jeff Blashill’s wards had a quality match against Chicago on their own ice, losing only in overtime – 2: 3. The problem with the team is that they too rarely score more than two goals per game, since there are practically no good performers in the club. In addition, it should be said that at home, Detroit won only two times.
“Chicago” wins come with great difficulty and, as a rule, in overtime. Even Detroit managed to pose problems for the Blackhawks attack, so in our opinion, this time, Wings will have a chance to score two points. Still, Jeff Blashill’s team looks better than at the start of the season, and more disciplined in defense.
Our bet is the victory of Detroit with a handicap (0) for odds 2.14.
