Blackhawks, Predators Love Going OVER

Chicago Blackhawks Corey Crawford

The Nashville Predators will be seeking to exact some revenge over the Chicago Blackhawks Thursday when the clubs square off in the second game of a home-and-home series in Tennessee. Chicago took the first game by a score of 4-1 which saw the red-hot Patrick Kane push his impressive career-high point streak to 24 games.

Shark Bites
  • The Predators are 4-14 SU in their last 18 games against their division.
  • The Blackhawks are 1-3 SU in their last four games after consecutive wins.
  • The Blackhawks are 13-5 SU in their last 18 games in December.

The Hawks’ last game at Bridgestone Arena came in the postseason last year which saw starting netminder Corey Crawford get torched for six goals in a Game 2 loss in the first round. Tonight’s tilt marks as good of a time as any for Crawford to right the ship in the Music City.

When the Preds and Blackhawks collide, high-scoring affairs tend to follow. The OVER has paid out in six of the last eight meetings between the squads.
