Chicago BlackhawksChicago Blackhawks vs. Los Angeles Kings Game 3 Free NHL Pick: If the Los Angeles Kings are going to have a chance to legitimately win the Stanley Cup for the second straight season, they are going to have to beat the NHL odds on Tuesday night against the Chicago Blackhawks. The Hawks are only +120 underdogs, and they are clearly the team that appears to be on their way to the Stanley Cup Finals, but there is still a heck of a lot left to decide at this point, starting on Tuesday night.

NHL Odds: Blackhawks +120 / Kings -127 (Total: 5)

The Kings haven’t lost a game at home here in the playoffs, and as a result, they aren’t anywhere near out of this series yet. That being said, this series doesn’t quite feel the same as the rest of them. Chicago was the definitively better of these two teams in the first two games, and Los Angeles hasn’t shown any abilities to beat G Corey Crawford on a consistent basis, and both of the goals that the team scored on Sunday in Game 2 were essentially garbage time goals after the game was said and done with. From that standpoint, if you’re betting on the Kings, you are essentially betting on the fact that G Jonathan Quick is going to have the game of his life against one of the best offenses in the game. Any time that you’re dealing with Quick, you know that’s a possibility. However, in the end, the Blackhawks are the better of these two teams, and they are ultimately going to take at least one of these two games in Tinseltown, and if that’s the case, the Blackhawks are the team to back.
