Minnesota Wild vs Chicago Blackhawks prediction
The Blackhawks are a team that’s falling apart by the week as the offense isn’t producing, and they’ve been shutout in back to back games. The Blackhawks have been shutout in 3 of their last 4 games. The Blackhawks have scored 1 or fewer goals in 7 of their last 10 games. It’s a tough sell, folks. The Minnesota Wild have had issues on the road this season, but they’ve owned the Blackhawks over the years, which includes a 4-1 win back in December. The Blackhawks just aren’t a team I can take seriously the rest of the season. Give me the Wild and the PL for max betting value.
