Carolina Hurricanes vs. Chicago Blackhawks

NHL: Tuesday, November 19, 2019 at 8:30 PM EST

After losing four in a row the Hurricanes have won three straight. They are tied for the 4th most points in the Western Conference and have scored 17 goals in their last three games, which began with an 8-2 thrashing of the Ottawa Senators. The Canes had only scored seven goals in their four-game skid before their current win streak.

The Blackhawks are on a tear winning four in a row and five of their last six games. The offense is the reason for the streak, as they have scored 21 goals in the four-game win streak. Chicago’s offense has been solid on the season averaging 3.05 goals per game and they rank in the middle of the pack in terms of goals allowed per game. The Blackhawks are in the 5th spot in the Western Conference and have played well on home ice this season going 6-3-2 in their house.

These teams met earlier this season in Carolina where the Canes shut out the Blackhawks winning 4-0.

Offense keeps it going

The Carolina offense stayed hot in their last game, which was a 4-3 OT win over the Minnesota Wild. Andrei Svechnikov played the hero in the game scoring 1:33 into overtime to give Carolina the win. Their offense has been the strength of the team this season ranking 8th in the NHL in goals per game. The Hurricanes last two games have been on the road and on the road this season they are 5-4-1.

Dougie Hamilton leads the Canes on the season in points and goals, had an assist in the win over the Wild, and has three goals and three assists in his last five games. #1 G Petr Mrazek (9-3-1 2.62 GAA) is slated to get the start in this non-conference game and the Canes have won his last two starts but he was not in between the pipes in the last game against the Wild.

Another dominating win

In their last game the Blackhawks laid a 4-1 beat down on the Buffalo Sabres and in their previous game, they crushed the Nashville Predators 7-2. Patrick Kane scored in the game and he has been red-hot as of late lighting the lamp in each of his last six games. Kirby Dach scored two goals in the win over the Sabres and the 18-year old rookie has four goals in his last four games.

Kane leads the Blackhawks in points, goals, and assists and he has six goals and four assists in his last five games. He has 11 goals on the season and no other Chicago player has more than six. Corey Crawford (4-4-2 3.01 GAA) is scheduled to start in this game and he was in goal in the win over the Sabres where he stopped 33 of 34 shots. However, he was also in goal in late October in Carolina where he gave up four goals on 31 shots in the 4-0 Chicago loss.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Hurricanes have won four of their last five games facing the Blackhawks and beat them a couple of weeks back at home. However, the Blackhawks will avenge that loss on home ice in the Windy City in this game. Their offense will stay hot and while their defense will not shut out the Hurricanes, they will keep them from lighting the lamp often. The Blackhawks will get the win to extend their winning streak to five while putting an end to Carolina’s win streak.

Prediction: Blackhawks

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

In four of Chicago's last six games, the total has gone Over and that has been the winning pick in five of Carolina's last seven road games. Those trends will continue, as this will be a game where defense will be at a premium. Kane and the Blackhawks attack will stay hot and they will beat the Canes in what will be a high scoring affair. The total went Under in the first matchup this season between these teams with the Blackhawks being shut out but that will not be the case in this game. Take the Over in this non-conference affair between two hot teams.

Prediction: Over

Jason Green

I dig every sport and the NFL is my favorite. My team is the Redskins and my 2nd favorite is whoever is playing the Cowboys! I am a great handicapper and if you don't believe me just ask. I don't just write about betting on games I actually bet on them and I have done well, which is why it is a good idea to follow my picks.
