Chicago Blackhawks at Ottawa Senators (-130, 5.5)

The Blackhawks and Senators both have some question marks in the crease right now.

Ottawa is still waiting for Craig Anderson to get back on the ice after he cut his hand preparing a meal last week, leaving rookie Robin Lehner and newly-acquired Ben Bishop to man the goal.

Meanwhile in Chicago, Corey Crawford has been pulled in his last two starts, putting Ray Emery back in the spotlight. That spotlight should be a lot brighter in Ottawa.

Emery came in to rescue Crawford after he allowed three goals on 10 shots against the Maple Leafs on Wednesday. Emery stopped 23 of the 24 shots he faced to help the Blackhawks to a 5-4 victory.

"You look at the schedule, it was going to be a tough schedule the past five, six, seven games,” Patrick Kane told reporters after picking up two points against the Leafs. “We knew that, and the rest of the way out. Our goal is to make the playoffs. Once we get in we know we can do some damage."

The Blackhawks will have to watch out for Ottawa’s dangerous power play as the Senators have scored seven times with the man advantage in their last five games.

Still, we think Emery is going to stick it to his former team.

Pick: Blackhawks

Dallas Stars at Edmonton Oilers (-105, 5.5)

When the Edmonton Oilers got off to a great start this season, some people wondered whether they could contend for a playoff spot in the tightly-packed Western Conference.

Some major injuries and inexperience will likely keep them out of the dance this year, but the future is obviously very bright for this club.

"We should be excited about improving as an organization, we should all be excited about that," Oilers coach Tom Renney told reporters. "But we should be disappointed that we don't have ourselves in a playoff position right now; we should be upset enough about that to make sure it doesn't happen again.”

The Oilers just aren’t tight enough yet. They turn the puck over too much in the neutral zone and suffer from lapses in concentration that sometimes turn one-goal deficits into blowouts.

They were picked apart by a disciplined St. Louis team Wednesday and could suffer the same fate against the Stars, who have collected at least a point in seven of their last eight games.

Pick: Stars
