After a couple weeks off wrongly predicting every Blackhawks game before the circus trip, I felt it was time to dust off the prediction thread to see if I can get close to tonight’s game and to see which Blackhawks fan can get the closest to tonight’s games final score and goal scorers.
The Blues are tied with the Nashville Predators 3 points above the Blackhawks a top of the Central Division Standings 24 games into the season. The Blackhawks always seem to dominate December so tonight would be a great time to start dominating with the Blues tonight and the Predators at the end of the week.
The one question mark heading into tonight is that Antti Raanta will be in net instead of Corey Crawford who was spectacular throughout the entire circus trip. The Blackhawks will be looking to start winning more consistently on home ice with the calendar reading December.
Raanta stands on his head tonight while the Brad Richards line scores twice with Patrick Kane getting one of those goals in a 4-2 Blackhawks win at the United Center!
