01:00 New Jersey Devils – Chicago Blackhawks

Chicago Blackhawks have been dominant in recent weeks, winning 9 out of 10 games in regulation time. They have done this without one of their best goal scorers, Patrick Sharp, who makes his return to lineup tonight.

More importantly, Blackhawks have rest advantage in this game as Devils played last night in Carolina. New Jersey have often played their goalie Cory Schneider even in both back-to-back games as their backup goaltender has terrible 4.73 Goals Against average in his limited games this season. It is statiscally proven that goaltender's workload has an impact to his game (Tired goalie 90.1 save% vs Rested goalie 91.2 save%). Whichever goalie Devils start with, the situation is not ideal which furthermore increases the chances for Chicago's away win.
