Sport: NHL | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1700)
Pick
-170 (True) - Edmonton Oilers to win series. @ bet365

Chicago caught a break with the expanded postseason format. Before the stoppage, they were seven points out of a playoff position. The Hawks have missed the playoffs the last two seasons after nine straight appearances. This season Chicago was 32-30-8 and finished 12th in the Western Conference, and last in the Central Division.

Edmonton finished the season at 37-25-9 and just missed out on the fourth seed falling just behind Dallas in win percentage. They finished second behind Vegas in the Pacific Division. Leon Draisaitl (110) and Connor McDavid (97) led the league in scoring.

Chicago won the regular-season matchup 2-1. Chicago averaged 3.03 goals per game on offense and in the defensive end they gave up 3.11 goals. Edmonton put up 3.17 goals while giving up 3.06 goals.

Corey Crawford has been "unfit to play" since the teams were able to get back on the ice. The Blackhawks are hoping he will be able to make the trip with the team. If not they will be at a huge disadvantage as they have 4 goalies with little experience. If he does play, you cannot be sure what kind of shape he will be in or how sharp he will be.

Edmonton will be on home ice, even though there will not be any crowds, they will still have an advantage.

Play on Edmonton to win the series. This is a 10* play
