Colorado vs Chicago: Avalanche and Blackhawks Clash in the Windy City
National Hockey League action is our focus today as first meets worst when Chicago hosts Colorado. The Blackhawks are tied for the Central lead with Nashville while the Avalanche are last overall in the division. Puck drop is scheduled for 8:30 PM ET on January 6, 2015, at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. Back the Hawks who have been red hot at home recently.
Hawks continue to soar at the Madhouse on Madison
There’s no place like home and few teams protect their pond better than the Blackhawks. Chicago aims for their 11th win in their last 12 games played at the United Center when Colorado comes calling tonight. The Hawks are soaring as they are on a 14-3-1 run and should be rested after two days off following a 5-4 win in OT at home against Dallas on Sunday. Chicago’s 2.15 goals against per game is the best mark in the NHL.
Colorado continues as one of the most inconsistent teams in the NHL
Mile High expectations haven’t been met as Colorado is one of the worst teams in the league as we near the halfway point of the 2014-15 NHL schedule. Loaded with a solid mix of rising stars and savvy veterans, the Avalanche are just 15-16-8 and sit nine points out of the last playoff spot in the West. Colorado visits Chicago for the first time this season but they are 0-2 against the Hawks after dropping 3-2 and 5-2 decisions at home. Blackhawks vs Avalanche Prediction: In addition to their stellar defensive play, Chicago can also fill the nets as the Hawks sit fifth overall with a 3.05 GPG average. Colorado meanwhile is a lowly 24th in both goals for (2.46) and goals against (2.95) per game this season. We will soar with the Hawks by placing a 500 unit wager on the Chicago money line posted on the betting board at the SportsInteraction online sportsbook.
