San Jose Sharks at Chicago Blackhawks (-125, 5.5)

Is there a goalie controversy brewing in Chicago?

Ray Emery, the backup to Corey Crawford for most of the season, has played three games in a row. Emery won two of those contests, allowing just two goals each at St. Louis and then at the Islanders on Thursday. Head coach Joel Quenneville said there is no controversy, but he added that Emery could get another start on Sunday.

“I don't call this a goalie controversy at all,” Quenneville noted. “If you look at all the teams in the league, I think every goalie that wasn't a starter gets a chance to get a couple games in a row or even more. Over the course of a season you're going to see some things where the other guy gets multiple starts.”

Of course, it may not matter who starts for the Blackhawks. They have scored 16 goals in their last four outings and have earned points in all four.

The Sharks, meanwhile, have lost four of their last six despite Thursday’s 5-2 home win over Dallas. They will be playing on no day’s rest after Saturday night’s game at St. Louis.

Pick: Blackhawks


Florida Panthers at New York Rangers (-145, 5)

Jose Theodore should be back in goal for the Southeast Division-leading Panthers after getting a rest in his team’s 2-1 overtime loss at Buffalo on Friday night.

Theodore is 11-5-3 with a 2.17 GAA and .929 save percentage this season. He has allowed only six total goals in his last five games (three wins, a loss, and an overtime loss). On Thursday, Theodore made 40 saves in a 2-0 shutout at Boston.

“It was a game where I saw the puck well and knew it would be tough for them to score,” Theodore said after the shutout. “When I am at the top of my game, I’m tough to beat.”

“We have to keep this going. We’re playing confident right now,” said Tomas Kopecky, who scored once against the Bruins. “We’re trying to prove those people who never believed in us [wrong]. I think we’re doing a pretty good job of it.”

The Rangers, meanwhile, have dropped two in a row following a five-game winning streak. They will be coming off a Saturday night date at Buffalo.

Pick: Panthers
