Thank you for joining me on this journey through the NHL regular season! Today’s the final day of the campaign and not many teams even have much to play for tonight.

Expert NHL Picks: Thursday, April 18

Below, you’ll find my expert Blackhawks vs. Kings picks for their matchup tonight. Stay tuned for my final NHL picks of the regular season in today's writeup. It’s worth noting that I made my prediction for today at Bet365 Sportsbook, one of the best platforms in the industry.




Blackhawks vs. Kings Picks For Today, 4/18

The Kings are in a prime position to secure the 3rd spot in the Pacific Division, and they are determined to do so. With an impressive home record of 21-12-7, they have proven themselves to be a force to be reckoned with. 

On the other hand, the Blackhawks have struggled on the road, boasting a dismal 7-32-1 record away from home. This stark contrast in performance is reflected in the odds for tonight's game. 

Despite the odds being stacked against them, I have full confidence in the Kings' ability to come out on top. Their motivation to avoid a top seed in the playoffs will drive them to dominate the game. That's why I'm backing LA on the puck line for my Blackhawks vs. Kings picks tonight.
