The Detroit Red Wings finally got into the win column on Friday night and have forced a Game 5 in the toughest building in the NHL – San Jose! The Wings finally pulled it all together in Game 4 but did so without Pavel Datsyuk, Tomas Holmstrom or Johan Franzen appearing on the score sheet. The San Jose players know that they have not seen the best Wings team yet in the series and are wary ahead of Game 5.

Detroit has arguably been the better team in the last two games but has come away with a disappointing split. They have garnered 81 shots in the last two converting on seven of those chances. Offensively things are looking up for Game 5 – except for Holmstrom and Franzen who have yet to score in the series.

Let’s face it; Jimmy Howard is not a spectacular keeper. But he is solid and with a little help from his team can look a bit better than he is. Howard isn’t losing any games for Detroit but he is not winning any for them either.

The San Jose Sharks have proven a few times in the playoffs that they are capable of the huge comeback rally. Unfortunately in Game 4 their rally fell a little short. They have been outplayed in recent outings and despite a 6-1 record in their last seven games against Detroit in the playoffs; they are now faced with a newly confident bunch of Wings!

San Jose keeps finding new heroes every night in the playoffs. Ryan Clowe was the Stud in Game 4 with three assists to continue a break out playoff campaign for him. The Sharks will continue to bring their extremely well balanced attack on Game 5 – four lines that can all do damage.

Is anyone else worried about Antti Niemi? Sure he’s has a lot of action in the last two games but he just doesn’t seem as trustworthy as he should playing on a team with a 3-1 series lead. It appears as though the traffic that Detroit has finally achieved in front of him is making a huge difference.

NHL Betting Trends:

SJ are 34-13 in their last 47 overall.
Over is 15-6-2 in SJ last 23 overall.
Over is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings.

Betting Prediction: The Detroit Red Wings are a veteran team that exudes professionalism – they are not done yet! Truth be told, we haven’t seen the best Red Wings team yet in this series but they have been getting a little better every game. All of the pressure is now off Detroit and now squarely on the Sharks – we all know what that means!

Pick: Detroit Red Wings +125 and the Over – 5.5 goals
