NHL Betting: Detroit Red Wings vs. Chicago Blackhawks Betting Odds & Picks
Detroit Red Wings @ Chicago Blackhawks u5.5 (NHL Betting Odds) – Thursday January 1 ’09 1:05p
The Chicago Blackhawks and the Detroit Red Wings reignite their original 6 rivalry today in the Winter out door classic in Chitowns Wrigley Field on New Years day. Both teams expect this to be a hard fought physical affair .
It’s expected to be mostly cloudy in Chicago on Thursday with a high of 34 degrees and a 20 percent chance of snow, and the players , have told the media the ice conditions were far from favorable, which will make for a less than cohesive game. This I am betting will effect scoring in a negative way .
Hawks D-man Brian Campbell was quoted as saying:
“It will be like a playoff game, “I think the guys are revved up for it and want to show what they can do on national TV.”
Cristobal Huet is expected to start in goal for the Blachawks .In seven starts, Huet was 6-0-1 with a 1.41 GAA, and has given up just four goals during a current five-game winning streak. Ty Conklin, who has played in out side games before is listed as the starter for the Red Wings .He is is 6-0 L/6 along with a stingy 2.04 GAA vs the Hawks.
Considering the above mentioned conditions, the attitude of both teams, and the starting goal tending , I am expecting a low scoring hard hitting game to be on the agenda.
