Malcolm Subban had a night of regression in goal, allowing all five Detroit tallies over the last two periods of play. Chicago will look to bounce back tonight with rookie Kevin Lankinen between the pipes.
The 25-year old Finland native is 8-3-3 with a 2.59 goals-against average and a .921% save percentage this season. The Blackhawks will be off until Thursday night after this game, continuing their home stand with three straight meetings against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Bets We Like With a Red Wings Win
Red Wings Team Total OVER 2.5 Goals (+100, William Hill)
Detroit’s offense matched their season high total last night with five goals scored, and 10 goals combined in their last two contests. Veterans Bobby Ryan and Sam Gagner have been pulling their weight with the absence of captain Dylan Larkin due to injury. They will have to continue their pressure to win a third straight game.
Bets We Like With a Blackhawks Win
Patrick Kane to Score a Goal Anytime (+145, DraftKings)
Everyone is watching the veteran tonight to see if he can score his 400th career goal, which would make him the fourth player in Blackhawks history to reach that milestone. Kane has been electric as of late, scoring 31 points in 22 games, including three goals and six assists in his last four contests.
Look for “Showtime” to cross off another accomplishment on his Hall-of-Fame resume tonight with a goal.

Bets We Like Independent of the Outcome
Full Game UNDER 5.5 Goals (-112, FanDuel)
Both clubs have been involved in their fair share of low-scoring games as of late, with the Hawks going 6-4 to the under in their last 10 games, while Detroit has gone under in four of their last seven contests. With Lankinen in net for Chicago, I expect a better defensive showing than what we saw in last night’s contest.
Blackhawks vs. Red Wings Prediction
Chicago is going to be out for revenge tonight, and with a few days off on the horizon, I like for the Blackhawks to play their A-Game here and beat Detroit by a 4-2 final.
