The Chicago Blackhawks can’t get out of their own way right now, and a lot of that has to do with an offense that can’t produce consistently. The Anaheim Ducks have their own issues, but they’ve been picking up a win here and there recently, and they’re playing their best hockey on home ice. I just can’t get behind the Blackhawks in their current form, especially on the road. Give me the ducks and the cheap price.
