The Vegas Golden Knights head to Chicago to take on the terrible Blackhawks.
Vegas is on a five-game winning streak, and they have an easy matchup today to make it six in a row. They are currently being challenged for the number one seed in the West by both the division rival Kings and the Dallas Stars in the Central Division. So taking on the worst team in the league, it’s a great spot to give themselves some breathing room as the air is thin atop the Western Conference.

Golden Knights vs. Blackhawks Best Picks
Jack Eichel has been working hard on the top line for Vegas, recording five points and 18 shots in his last five games. However, with a walkover game today, the top line shouldn’t be working as hard as they have at other points in this winning streak. As a result, bettors should look for a light day from Line 1 and look for some production from more unlikely candidates.

Golden Knights vs Blackhawks Prediction
Laurent Brossoit is making his first start of the season, and it’s an excellent spot taking on Chicago. He appeared in 24 games last year for Vegas but has spent all of this season with the Silver Knights. He’ll look to make the most of this opportunity tonight. He should give up a few, but Mrazek should give up more than a few for Chicago. An obvious edge is going to Vegas, but the over is the best play in this one.
