This is a matchup of two teams that have their sights set in different directions right now. We gave clients the Blackhawks ML the other night when they won in Columbus, and we have just as much reason to do it tonight. Not only did they win that game pretty convincingly, it also essentially put an end to Columbus' season. Since that game, the Blue Jackets traded away one of their best defensemen as well as their captain, as they tank for the offseason. I think they've mailed it in for the year, and with the trade deadline taking place this afternoon, I could see a couple of more Blue Jackets being traded by game time. I think that will certainly affect their chemistry on the ice but also their mental focus on the game. Chicago has won their last 5 games in Columbus, and I think they'll make it 6 straight tonight.
