Chicago are 12-18 ATS at home.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of Chicago's last 6 games.

Boston are 22-37 ATS this season.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Boston's last 7 games.

Prediction

The Bruins have the #5 defense in the NHL and are allowing 2.2 gpg in their last 10 games. They've improved offensively scoring 3.9 gpg in the last 10. The Blackhawks aren't profitable ATS at home. The Bruins haven't been good ATS this season but the way they're playing I think they will win this one easy.
