2 wins etch and now it is, as you probably figured out, time for Game 5 in this best of seven series. Anaheim has so far been the slightly better team, by winning two games in regulation time, while Chicago won its 2 in dubble and triple overtime. Chicago has a slightly thinner defensive line caused by an injury to Michael Rozilval and it is something the Ducks will try to take advantage of playing at home in Honda Center, when Anaheim can see which players the Blackhawks puts on the ice and then chose their own. The Finnish alderman of the Blackhawks, Kimmo Timonen, once a really good defenseman, has not been lucky in this playoffs. The 40 year old doesn’t get a lot of time on the ice, but the Blackhawks will give him some time. With Timonen on the ice, the Ducks will try to put their top line constellation with Getzlaf, Perry and Maroon to play against the old Finn. Ducks top line has been hotter than lava so far during the playoffs and they will probably produce tonight as well if they play against Timonen/Rundblad for example. I believe in another tight match between these two class acts, but it feels like the hockey gods should be on Anaheim’s side this evening. Ducks including OT is my pick of the day. The best odds is 1.78 at Unibet.
