The last time we saw these two teams Corey Crawford and Jonathan Quick were in net, but tonight it will be all backups as the two Western Conference powerhouses star goalies are currently injured. The Blackhawks seemed to have Quick’s number all season long from opening day until Game #5 in the Western Conference Finals so it will be interesting to see if the Hawks offensive road show will be able to score at home against a goalie they aren’t familiar with like they are with Quick
Last Night’s Prediction- All I know is I didn’t predict the Blackhawks getting blown out so I have already forgotten because whatever it was it was pretty far off.
Tonight’s Prediction- This is a heavyweight battle so I’m predicting a 3-2 Blackhawks win in a shootout with Patrick Sharp picking up a goal and the shootout winner.
What is your prediction for tonight? Don’t be scared! Please leave your prediction for tonight’s game!
