Blackhawks Aim For NHL Playoff Series Sweep of The Wild

Blackhawks Aim For NHL Playoff Series Sweep of The Wild

Superstars are delivering for the Blackhawks

Playoff success is largely dependant on a teams top players showing up and producing. That’s certainly the case in Chicago as Patrick Kane, Duncan Keith, Jonathan Toews and Patrick Sharp have posted a combined 39 points through the Blackhawks first nine games. Chicago has also settled on Corey Crawford in net and he has won four consecutive starts including a 30 save shutout on Tuesday.

Minnesota Wild: Surprising success against St. Louis has not carried over

Count us in the crowd that was surprised by Minnesota’s quarterfinal win over St. Louis. That said, a harboring of things to come surfaced during the final two games as the Wild were out shot by a 68-40 margin but still managed to pick up a pair of 4-1 victories. A combination of bad Blues goaltending, coupled with Devan Dubnyk playing largely lights out, propelled the Wild into the semifinals.

Wild vs Blackhawks NHL Playoff Prediction: While some of the the Dubnyk magic has worn off, offense is the biggest problem in Minnesota. Add in the seven points from Hawks forward Marion Hossa and Chicago has five players in the top twenty playoff scoring race. Minnesota has one player in the top twenty with the nine points Zach Parise has posted. We are taking the pucks with the higher scoring team and backing the Blackhawks with a 1000 unit wager on the spread price posted at BetOnline.
