Situational Slaughter - Rickenbach NHL Rotation #8 Sunday 10* Winnipeg Jets Money Line (-) vs Chicago Blackhawks @ 7:05 ET - I know this is a back to back spot for the Jets but they saved their #1 goalie for this game and are off an easy 5-2 win versus Ottawa early yesterday. Winnipeg will have red hot Connor Hellebuyck between the pipes for this game. He and the Jets are hell bent on getting revenge here as they have lost the last two meetings against the Blackhawks by a combined score of 9-3. Keep in mind, Winnipeg comes into this game having won 3 of 4 games including twice knocking off the Stanley Cup Champion Blues. As for Chicago, they have lost 3 of 4 games as they have cooled off. Also, they expect to have Corey Crawford between the pipes for this one. I know he has produced some strong starts lately but he has struggled in divisional games this season. Crawford is 1-6 and has allowed 24 goals in 8 games (7 starts) in divisional action. By the way, that doesn't even include facing the Jets this season. He hasn't faced them since last season and all the recent results are ugly. Crawford has allowed 14 goals in his last 3 starts against Winnipeg and that includes allowing 4 or more goal in EACH of the 3 starts. The Blackhawks do have the rest edge here but I feel we're getting a tremendous bargain here with the Jets on home ice and holding the goalie edge in this match-up in my opinion. This is a key battle in the playoff race and Winnipeg is ready to avenge those two losses. Double revenge spot for the Jets and they get the job done in a key divisional match-up here. 10* WINNIPEG
