NBC Sports Network Rout - Rickenbach NHL Rotation #29 Wednesday 10* Top Play OVER the total in Chicago Blackhawks vs Boston Bruins @ 8:05 ET - The Bruins are off a big 4-0 shutout win last night while the Blackhawks fell short 3-2 in overtime at Minnesota. Back to back situations have a tendency to stress the goalie position and I expect that to work in our favor for a nice over in this match-up. Chicago is likely going to turn to Robin Lehner tonight. Though the netminder had been playing well, he is very likely to be rusty here as he has not been in between the pipes since prior to the All Star break two weeks ago! For Boston, since Tuukka Rask was in goal last night, the Bruins are expected to turn to Jaroslav Halak here. The back-up netminder was strong in his most recent road start. However, that was preceded by a trio of road starts in which he allowed an average of 4 goals per game! Halak is likely to see the road struggles resume here as the Blackhawks had been very hot prior to last night's road loss. Chicago had won 6 of 7 games prior to the loss to the Wild. Also, the Blackhawks averaged 4 goals per game during this 7-game stretch. Speaking of hot scoring, the Bruins have averaged 3.7 goals per game in their past 6 games and have scored 10 goals in their past two games. They have had a fire lit under them since returning from the All Star break and they also have revenge against the Blackhawks here from a home loss earlier this season. 4 of the last 5 meetings between these teams have totaled at least 6 goals. The average total in those 4 games was 8.3 goals and I am expecting at least 7 in this one given the situation. 10* OVER the total in Chicago
