Expert Picks: Available Here!

Preview: Two teams separated by just one win will get together in the Twin Cities of Minnesota. The defending Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks will take on the Minnesota Wild.

Chicago comes in with 70 points, tied for 9th in the Western Conference. The Blackhawks are a single point behind Calgary for 8th and two points behind Minnesota for 7th. Chicago has been hampered by injuries most of the season. Their one constant scoring threat this season has been Patrick Sharp. The center has 32 goals and 24 assists on the season. Chicago ranks as the fourth highest scoring team, scoring 3.1 goals per game. Chicago also ranks second in the NHL in power play percentage, as they score on nearly 25% of their attempts.

The Wild are led by left wing Martin Havlit. Havlit has scored 19 goals, but dished out 33 assists to lead the team with 52 points. Minnesota is coming off a 3-2 win on the road at Anaheim. The Wild are just five wins away from topping their win total of 38 last season.

My Betting Predictions: Chicago has a tough time on the road, which leads to a Wild win. Minnesota 4-3 in this one.
