Prediction

The Penguins continue to lose games and will get here probably tired and lack of motivation after a tough loss in overtime against the Bruins in Pittsburgh. The Blackhawks are having a great start of the season winning 5 of their first 7 games and have been playing great offense averaging 4 goals per game this season. Go with the Blackhawks to take the win at home against a struggling Penguins team who are allowing over 3 goals per game.
