Does anyone else have a bad feeling about Detroit this season? The Wings begin their quest toward Lord Stanley’s Cup on Wednesday night against a Phoenix Coyotes club that gained 99 points this season – 99! Don’t ask me how but they did it.

The Wings have battled injuries all season and the present is no different. Henrik Zetterberg will miss Game 1 and by all accounts could be out longer than that. His absence is huge – Zetterberg was Detroit’s leading scorer this season. Detroit finished the season 4-4-2 which doesn’t exactly breed an air of optimism!

Drew Miller, Dan Cleary and Todd Bertuzzi all have two points in their last two games – Mike Modano is pointless in four games and Valtteri Filppula and Juri Hudler have one point in their last five. Without Zetterberg somebody has to pick it up!

Jimmy Howard will get the nod in net on Wednesday night – he finished the season with an OK 2.79 goals against average and was 1-1-0 with a 3.53 goals against average in his last two starts.

The Phoenix Coyotes are going to bring their all around, no frills style to the playoffs again. Everyone on this team competes hard each and every night. They are not going to roll over for the mighty Wings – guaranteed!

Offensively, no one Coyotes line scares the Wings. The only have one – 20 goal scorer. But what the Coyotes do have is balance – 10 Coyotes scored in double digits this season! Shane Doan is the leader and has picked up his game down the stretch while the others have followed.

Ilya Bryzgalov will have to be the difference in this game. He was 8-3-2 with a 1.89 goals against average in his last 13 games and is 2-0-2 against Detroit this season.

NHL Betting Trends:
Under is 8-2-1 in PHO last 11 overall.
PHO are 22-8 in their last 30 Wed. games.
DET are 115-43-11 in their last 169 Wed. games.
DET are 304-133-16 in their last 453 home games.
PHO are 12-30-6 in the last 48 meetings.
Over is 7-3-4 in the last 14 meetings.

Betting Prediction: The Phoenix Coyotes were a better road team than a home team this season while the Red Wings have been miserable on home ice in the second half of the season – under .500 in their last 26!

I love Phoenix in this game – the Wings have been absolutely brutal on home ice lately and without Zetterberg, the team simply isn’t the same. Part of Detroit’s past success is because of their swagger and the 2011 Wings have no swagger.

Pick: Phoenix Coyotes +150
