Games featuring a pair of squads that are just playing out the rest of the shoe in the final days of the season can be a crapshoot. Making matters more intriguing, the Blackhawks (273) and Coyotes (292) have yielded more goals than anyone else in the Western Conference. At first glance, you might be thinking ‘over’ but I’m on the opposite side. Coyotes rookie goalie Karel Vejmelka has displayed encouraging progress throughout his freshman campaign, while the same could be said of Blackhawks net-minder Kevin Lankinen since attaining the starting job in Chicago. With that high total of 6.5, just one has to come through.
