The Vegas Golden Knights look to stay hot on home ice in a matinee contest against the Chicago Blackhawks. TonesTakes gives his prediction for this matchup and shares his picks.

Chicago Blackhawks vs Vegas Golden Knights: A Sin City Matinee Show

The streaking Chicago Blackhawks visit the Golden Knights today, in Las Vegas. After they traded Marc-Andre Fleury at the trade deadline, the Hawks have reeled off two consecutive road wins at Anaheim and Los Angeles. They will look to sweep this quick, 3 game road trip, but that is going to be a tough task today. The Golden Knights. who continue to be ravaged by injuries, are fighting for their playoff lives for the first time in their short history. The Knights sit 1 point behind Dallas for the final Wild Card spot in the West and 3 points behind the Oilers for 3rd in the Pacific.

Chicago Blackhawks vs Las Vegas Golden Knights Prediction

The Knights have had issues scoring in the month of March, but a lot of that has come on the road. In 8 road games this month, the Knights are averaging 2.00 goals per game. In 6 home games this month, the Knights are averaging 3.83 goals per game. These numbers are consistent with their overall season averages of 3.31 goals per game at home and 2.84 goals per game on the road, so the Knights are a better scoring team on home ice. Las Vegas' power play also goes from an 8th worst 16% on the road to a respectable 22.1% at home. Their home power play has been hot lately, scoring goals in each of their last four games, including a 3 goal performance against Nashville on Thursday night.

Despite only allowing 5 goals in their last 2 road games, the Blackhawks struggle to keep pucks out of their own net away from home. They are allowing 3.56 goals against on the road, which is 4th most in the league. Chicago's road penalty kill is 15th at 79%, which is respectable, but they draw a tough matchup today.

I like to look at trends for day games as NHL players are creatures of habit. In 7 day games this season, the Blackhawks are allowing a 6th most 3.71 goals per game. In 5 day games this season, the Knights are averaging a 12th most 3.41 goals per game.

I expect the Golden Knights to continue their hot home scoring pace today against the Blackhawks

Jonathan Marchessault Over .5 Power Play Points (+205) (Bet $100 to Win $205)

I mentioned how hot the Vegas home Power play is. Marchessault is at the center of that. Jonathan has registered a power play point in 3 of his last 4 home games, including a 3 point performance against Nashville. Marchessault leads the Knights with 19 power play points this season. I see tremendous value in this number today.
