Chicago has been a consistent bet this season, with 1.36 betting units against the puck line. But Chicago bettors took a hit last game when the ‘Hawks were shut out for the first time this season by the Montreal Canadiens (+120) at home. Despite Chicago outshooting the Canadiens 38-35, Corey Crawford (.945 SV%) let two slip by, which broke his eight-plus period shutout streak. Crawford will likely be between the pipes again on Thursday to face Claude Giroux and the Flyers (7 PM ET).

Philadelphia (1.49 units against the puck line) is coming off a loss of their own. Last Saturday, in a game against the Colorado Avalanche (+155), the Flyers went to a shootout after a 4-4 tie through regulation. Colorado’s Mikko Rantanen scored the game winner against Michal Neuvirth (.928 SV%). It’ll likely be Brian Elliott (.892 SV%) in net when the Flyers host the Blackhawks, however.
