After being swept by Nashville in last year’s playoffs, the Blackhawks are off to a 3-1-1 start to 2017. Chicago is coming off a 5-2 loss at home to Minnesota. The Blackhawks are scoring 4.60 goals per game this season while allowing 2.40 per game. Ryan Hartman is leading the team with eight points on two goals and six assists while Brandon Saad has recorded five goals and two assists. Corey Crawford is 3-1 in net this year with a 1.50 GAA and a .956 save percentage.

Nashville start the season with a pair of road losses but has since won its last two games, both at home. The Predators are putting up 3.25 goals per game while allowing 3.50 per contest. Filip Forsberg has four goals and two assists to lead the team so far while P.K. Subban has added one goal with five assists. Pekka Rinne is 2-1 in his three starts with a 3.08 GAA and a .902 save percentage.

Bet on Predators vs. Blackhawks

Chicago should have plenty of motivation in this game. The Blackhawks were swept out of the playoffs as the top seed by Nashville last year. Chicago should have revenge on its mind and the Blackhawks have looked great to start 2017. Chicago has been starting very fast, putting up 2.2 goals per game in the first period while Nashville is averaging just half a goal in the first. I think Chicago starts fast again and rides that to a win.
