The Chicago Blackhawks have played 24 games this season and they’ve yet to lose once in regulation. On Friday, they’ll try to keep that perfect record intact when they finish up their home-and-home series with the Colorado Avalanche.
The Blackhawks record-setting streak has been nothing short of incredible as they continue to find ways to win. A total of 13 different players have scored game-winning goals during this unprecedented run, including Daniel Carcillo’s last-minute squeaker against Colorado on Wednesday.
The Avalanche come into this contest struggling in a big way as they have lost six of their last seven games. Scoring seems to be the issue for them these days as they’ve tallied just 15 goals in their last seven games. The good news is that home-ice advantage could be a factor as the Avs are 6-2-1 at home compared to 2-8-3 when away. The Avs pushed the Blackhawks to their limits on Wednesday in Chicago so the venue change could be the tipping point.
Keep an eye on the betting lines for this matchup as the Blackhawks are dealing with a couple of minor injuries.
