Puck Line Pick
One tough road game after another for the Detroit Red Wings, as they make a quick turn around with an early clash against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Detroit’s losing woes have continued on the road and it won’t get any easier, as the Penguins come off a strong three-goal home victory over Montreal. The Red Wings have lost four of the last five head-to-heads against the Penguins. Detroit has also struggled to win in recent trips to PPG Paints Arena. Things looked hopeful for the Wings in their game in Boston, by scoring early, but it went downhill quickly for them after that. Taking the Penguins at on the puck line is the right move.
Over Under Pick
When facing the Red Wings, it seems like the perfect opportunity for the opposing team to really pad the stats offensively. However, teams just haven’t been doing that very often. Detroit only managed one goal in their loss at Boston, as the Bruins took that game 4-1. The last three games for Pittsburgh has resulted in five-goal totals or less. This match-up features a six-goal total, but regardless when the Red Wings are involved an under total is the best play.
