FREE NHL PREDICTION CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS VS ARIZONA COYOTES
The Chicago Blackhawks are running out of time to make the playoffs and the Coyotes are running out of games to make something out of their lost season. Both teams have clearly been struggling all season as it can only go up-hill from here; or can it? Scoring is a season-long issue for the Coyotes, who are 30th in scoring, 30th in goals against and 31st in the overall NHL standings with 42 losses in 55 games. Their most recent loss has to be one of the most difficult to handle all seasons. They lost Saturday night after the shootout went seven rounds. Flyers goalie Michal Neuvirth came off the bench cold, faced 5 shots in overtime and stopped all of them. Blackhawks are currently on a five game skid and looking to get on some sort of win streak to get back into the mix. Take Blackhawks looking to right the ship tonight.
