   The Blackhawks have been very, very hot, going 4-1 in their last five games, which they've only played five games since the new year. The Blackhawks last ten games, they are 8-2 comming off a loss vs the Wild, where the game went into a shootout.  11 goals were scored in that game, with the Blackhawks blowing a late lead in the last five minutes of the game.  The Blackhawks are the favorites tonight at home vs. the ANAHEIM(19-14), who have gave up 139 goals thus far this season, while the Blackhawks have only gave up 98 goals, and six of thoes were last night.

   The Chicago Blackhawks haven't been forced to deal with many humbling setbacks this season. At least they won't have to wait long to try and bounce back from their most frustrating loss of the season last night like I said. 

  The stunning collapse was one of the few times this season the Blackhawks showed a lack of composure and confidence on the ice. Chicago has scored at least five goals in five of six games, but it allowed more than three for the first time in that span Saturday. The Blackhawks have given up more than four goals only three times this season.

But tonight vs the Dallas stars, the Blackhawks are the favorite, and the Puckline is -1.5(+110) and the Money lines is around -280.   I'm very much on the Blackhawks who are 15-4 when the total is at 5.5 and 6-0 playing on Sunday!! Also the Blackhawks are 8-2 when playing back-to-back days. On other hands, Anaheim is 6-15 on the road where the total is 5.5 and 0-4 on Sundays.  When the Blackhawks are 8-2 when playing back to back, Anaheim is 1-7!!! By the way, Anaheim is 6-16 on the road, and the Blackhawks are 20-4 at home!! In the last three season, 6 of 10 games in this series have gone UNDER THE TOTAL over the last 3 seasons, and CHICAGO is 4-1-0 straight up against ANAHEIM over the last 3 seasons.

Good luck!! GO B-HAWKS!
