The Blackhawks enter on a three-game win streak, including two victories as underdogs. Last time out was a 2-1 win over the Arizona Coyotes at home Friday. Each of the three wins are one-goal games, hitting the Under in each.

Blackhawks at Kraken projected goalies

Marc-Andre Fleury (3-7-0, 3.50 GAA, .897 SV%) vs. Philipp Grubauer (4-7-1, 3.18 GAA, .880 SV%)

Fleury has found his sea legs after a rough start to his tenure in Chitown. He has backstopped back-to-back wins, including a 3-2 shootout against the Pittsburgh Penguins Tuesday against his original NHL team.

Grubauer, a Vezina Trophy finalist last season with the Colorado Avalanche, is finding expansion team life tough. He has dropped three straight games, allowing 13 goals during the span, including at least 3 goals in each loss. He enters 1-3-0 with a 3.87 GAA and .847 SV% in four November starts.

Blackhawks at Kraken odds, lines, picks and predictions


Blackhawks 4, Kraken 3

Money line

The BLACKHAWKS (+122) are a great value on the road as they enter on a three-game win streak, lately finding ways to win. The Kraken are moderate favorites for a team struggling and playing poor defense with inconsistent goaltending.

Against the spread

The Blackhawks +1.5 (-220) have been involved in one-goal games the past three times out, all wins. Six of their last 10 games have been decided by one goal. Still, this is too expensive if you want a little insurance. If you like the Blackhawks, just play them straight up.



The OVER 5.5 (-115) has been the rule for the Kraken, cashing in six straight games. It's worth playing lightly here as the Blackhawks actually enter on a 3-0 Under run. But even Chicago's sputtering offense should find some success in Seattle.
