The Blackhawks play the New Jersey Devils two days before Christmas so going into tonight’s game it’s up to Chicago to find out whether the Hawks will check off a New Jersey win and check it twice. The Devils are a .500 team that doesn’t score but don’t give up goals either, so the Hawks need to jump out in front early and often to avoid a dreadfully boring game before Christmas.
Last Game’s Prediction– I picked the Hawks to win 4-3 with a Bryan Bickell goal so to quote one of my kids- My prediction was an Epic Fail!
Tonight’s Prediction– The Hawks get back to their winning ways when a Devils team comes to Chicago to play out one last game before their Christmas break. The Hawks will pick up a 4-2 win against the Devils and I will go back to the well one more time with Bickell getting his first goal since returning from injury.
