Free NHL Pick For Feb 18: Blackhawks vs. Blue Jackets
Chicago Blackhawks (1.66) vs. Columbus Blue Jackets (2.38); Total 5.5
1:05 PM ET starting time for this game.
It is finally over. Of course I am talking about the much publicized losing streak of the Chicago Blackhawks. Chicago had lost 9 in a row heading into New York to face a tough Rangers team. Many thought surely the Blackhawks were headed for a 10th straight loss but that was not the case. Instead the Hawks came out firing and put up 4 quick goals in the 1st period. The Hawks would go on to win the game 4-2 putting an end to their losing streak. Today the Hawks will face a Blue Jackets team that is having a miserable season. To make matters worse for Columbus the team has announced that Rick Nash is being shopped around and is expected to be moved before the trade deadline. The Blackhawks just ended their losing streak. Can they now start a winning streak?

Chicago Blackhawks vs. Columbus Blue Jackets Prediction:
The Blackhawks are not as bad as they have looked the past two weeks and there is no panic in Chicago as they are still in a playoff spot at 6th in the West. Now that Chicago has got the monkey off their back I like they to keep it going today and there couldn’t be a better opponent for them to do it against. Chicago has won 5 in a row over Columbus and 7 of the last 8 meetings with them. There are a lot of distractions in Columbus and they are not very good to begin with. Currently the Blackhawks are a 1.66 (or -152) favorite at 5 Dimes Sportsbook. I’ll take the Blackhawks for the win in this game
