Free Boston Bruins vs. Detroit Red Wings NHL Prediction:
The Detroit Red Wings have owned the Boston Bruins in their previous three matchups, going 3-0-0 during the span.
Detroit has been able to put the puck in the net for an average of 4.33 goals per game while holding Boston to an average of just 2.33
The Red Wings have three power-play goals during the three games on nine attempts while the Bruins have scored just once on 11 opportunities.
What a difference a season can make. Sure, Detroit is 3-0-0 in their previous three games against the Bruins. This will be the first meeting between the two teams this season, though.
Not only are the Bruins scoring about a goal and a half more a game than the Red Wings, they are also much stronger on the defensive end of the ice, especially between the pipes.
Both of these teams are spending a ton of time in the penalty box every night. The only difference is that Boston has actually been able to be productive while skating a man down.
Detroit has given up three shorthanded goals to opponents this season. I think that number increases in Friday’s game. My money is on Boston.
