A seven-game losing run takes the Chicago Blackhawks (7th in Central Division) to Raleigh, where the local Carolina Hurricanes (7th in Metropolitan) are playing host on the back of just one win in their last seven fixtures…

Blackhawks Continue To Lose

The losing skid of the Chicago Blackhawks (6-8-3) stretched out to seven games in a row (0-6-1) following a 4-0 blanking by the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center on Saturday, when the team recorded its 14th straight regular-season defeat in Philly (0-13-1). Jeremy Colliton lost his second consecutive game after replacing Joel Quenneville as coach of the ‘Hawks, who have been outscored 30-12 during the slump. Chicago has lost five away games in succession and is 3-5-1 on the road this year overall, presently sitting dead last in the Central Division with 15 points from 17 fixtures.

Patrick Kane is leading the team with 12 goals and 21 points, while goalie Corey Crawford, having made nine starts, has notched a 3-6-0 record for the year so far with a 3.07 GAA and a .901 save percentage. He is 5-5-0 against the Carolina Hurricanes historically with a 2.57 GAA and a .919 save percentage. The Blackhawks, meanwhile, are netting the 9th lowest number of goals per game (2.88), while giving up the 2nd highest quantity on the defensive end (3.76). They are bottom of the league in power play with a 12.5% success rate and 22nd in penalty kill with 76.9% efficiency.

‘Canes Get Beaten By Detroit

The Carolina Hurricanes (7-7-3) collected points for the second consecutive game (1-0-1), but still registered their sixth defeat in the past seven fixtures (1-4-2) following a 4-3 shootout loss against the Detroit Red Wings at PNC Arena on Saturday. A single goal by the visitors during the skills competition was enough to grant the third consecutive home fiasco to the ‘Canes, who squandered a 3-1 second-period lead on their way to their misery. Carolina has now gone 3-3-2 on its own ice and sits 7th in the Metropolitan Division with 17 points from 17 outings.

Sebastian Aho (4 goals, 16 assists) has collected the majority of points for the team so far this season (20), while goalie Scott Darling has picked up a 1-2-1 performance total after four starts with a 3.00 GAA and a .905 save percentage. He is 2-0-1 against the Chicago Blackhawks previously with a 2.99 GAA and a .902 save percentage. The Hurricanes, meanwhile, are netting the 6th lowest amount of goals per game (2.71), while conceding the 12th lowest quantity defensively (3.00). They are 27th in power play (14.3%) and 3rd from the bottom in penalty kill (71.9%).

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Although the Hurricanes have only managed to win one of their last five home contests, the team should do just fine against the Blackhawks, who themselves have lost nine of their past 12 trips to North Carolina. Chicago has been in horrid form lately, losing seven straight games, while being shut out in two of the very last four. With five losses in their past six road outings versus sides with a poor home record and with just one victory in their last 13 Monday games, expect the Blackhawks to suffer further damage here.

Prediction: Carolina Hurricanes

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Six of the last eight meeting between the two sides have gone below the six-goal mark, with this particular one very likely to be doing the same. The Blackhawks have managed to find the back of the net on just 12 occasions during their seven-game losing run, netting an average of 1.7 markers per fixture. The Hurricanes, meanwhile, have scored just 14 goals in their last seven contests (2 per game) and have already gone under the total in eight of their past 11 matchups against sides from the Central Division.

Prediction: Under 6
