Vancouver Canucks vs Chicago Blackhawks prediction
The Hawks lost 3 in a row on the road after they had a tremendous streak going on away from home.
They are not playing solid hockey on the road anyway this season with a 47.07 Cf% ( 22th ), 44.58 xGF% ( 27th ), 41.25 HDCF% ( 29th ).
Lehner is not in great form ( allowed 10 goals over his last 3 starts ) and in case Crawford will start: 2.91 GAA / 0.91 SV% / 7.91 GSAA.
The Canucks are red hot as they won 9 of their last 10 games at home. This streak started at december the 22th and looking at this very span, they recorded a bad 40.82 xGF% ( 28th ), 45.20 CF% ( 27th ), 44.59 SCF% ( 25th ).
So pretty crazy that they won so many games in a row at home during this span right? True, but the thing is that they have been supper efficient with a monsterous 80.0 SCGF% ( 2nd best ) which is the key to all of this.
Leivo ( 19 points ) is out, but red hot Petterson ( back from an injurie ) and Miller have been super efficient indeed.
Markstrom with a big 15.07 GSAA is confirmed in net.
-Blackhawks are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in Vancouver.
Hence backing the Canucks.
