Look for Blackhawks to win in Minnesota for Ailing Coach
The Pick: Chicago -185 over Minnesota
The big news earlier today was that Chicago head coach Joel Quenneville is hospitalized and in stable condition. The best information we have heard is that he is being treated for a undisclosed health concern. Perhaps this serves as extra motivation for the Stanley Cup Champions who are sitting four points out of a playoff position. Chicago has won only one game in regulation in their last five and return home after a six game road trip. The Blackhawks last home game was ironically a loss to tonight's opponent the Minnesota Wild 4-2. The Wild played at home last night losing to Vancouver 4-1. Minnesota has won five of their last seven road games and are only one point out of a playoff spot. Still this is as close to a must-win game as there is in the month of February for the Chicago Blackhawks. Look for them to inch closer to the playoffs by winning at home tonight.
