_Between a battle of sea creatures or aerial creatures, which one would you choose? It seems to be quite a difficult choice but if we try to analyze their strength and weaknesses then we will have no problem dealing with difficult choices. Free hockey picks like this one will help you make the right choice when it comes to your bets.

The San Jose Sharks lost to a 1-0 against the St. Louis Blues on Saturday. It seems that they are already treading on rough seawaters since they have to be ready for a very different style of game in the second leg against the Chicago Blackhawks. On Sunday, they’ll have to get ready for a high-scoring contest as the Chicago Blackhawks and their slew of weapons lead the Western Conference with 96 goals scored.

The Sharks may be on a whirlpool as of the moment.

Sunday December 11th
NHL Odds: Blackhawks -130

Shark Attack:
The Sharks may take the victory in this battle because there are several reasons why they have to do something different. The Blackhawks has issues with the goaltender controversy to fill their hands. It roots from the fact that Corey Crawford has been struggling mightily over the last couple of weeks and backup Ray Emery has outplayed him. Crawford has allowed 17 goals in his last five starts while posting a GAA of 4.08 in that span. And it’s not as if he’s faced thousands of shots either since he has only stopped 116 of 133 shots in five games which gives it an equivalent percentage of 0.872. If there’s anything than can boost the Shark’s offense then it’s none other than a struggling goalie.

Blackhawks Up:
The Blackhawks has a smooth road to victory since the Sharks are almost drowning in funk. Back in November 23rd the Sharks won 1-0 and that was the last time they met. Since that time, the Sharks have just two wins in their last seven. Even though they topped Dallas 5-2 earlier this week, they are in a scoring slump as they have just eight goals in their other six games. Martin Havlat has just four assists in his last 14 games while Patrick Marleau has just one goal in his last six games.

Also the Blackhawks are rested as opposed to the restless Sharks who have back to back games on the road. The Blackhawks are in fact the highest scoring team in the Western Conference and they might not have to work so hard to get back at the drowning Sharks.
