The Red Wings Take on the Canadiens at the Joe Thursday in a game that really means everything to Detroit.
The wings are clinging to playoff aspirations amid a tight 4 way race for the final playoff spot while the Habs are simply looking forward to the end of a disastrous season.
Detroit Red Wings
Mrazek and the wings look to bounce back from a pounding at the hands of the Lightning this week.
With less than 10 games left, Detroit has a favourable schedule facing off in 4 games with low-lying teams and a 1-1 matchup with Philadelphia, which whom the are tied with for that final playoff spot.
This is the start of a make or break series of games for wings, so expect them to come out strong at home.
Two things we can take from a disappointing season is 1) Price is the absolute heart of this team and undeniably the best net minder in the league and 2) the core of this team was extremely over rated and an overhaul is inevitable in the off-season.
That being said, the young core is getting an extended view and many have preformed above expectations.

Free Montreal Canadiens vs. Detroit Red Wings NHL Hockey Prediction
The Red Wings need to come into this game with a desperation mentality. They looked strong heading into March but have since fallen flat and have been beaten badly on the road.
Joe Louis has been kinder, with Detroit having won 7 of the last 10 at home. Mzerak is expected to be back in net after an illness and squares off against what I assume will be Ben Scrivens.
That is a huge advantage for Detroit, and expect the home goalie to be at his best, especially against a Habs team that is scoring less than 2.2gpg on the road this season.
The Habs have only managed 1 win in their last 6 road games, and that was against the Sabres.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Detroit PL/-1.5
At this time of this post, odds are still off but I assume the game will open at Detroit -190/-200.
This is a great spot to take the PL, even though Montreal might try to keep it close, I see Detroit dictating the play, and the -1.5 might come down to an empty net goal.
Less risky play can be a Detroit in regulation play.
