The Red Wings are in a slightly different boat here in 2021, as Steve Yzerman and the Red Wings are in full on rebuild mode and although they may have their sights set on the future they have proven up to this point that they can compete and steal a win when they bring their A-game.
The Hurricanes last win over the Nashville Predators put them 1 point ahead of the defending Stanley Cup Champions in the Central Division and although they currently sit atop the division they know it will be very tough to hold on to the top spot with the Lightning breathing down their neck the rest of the way.
Lightning fans will also point to the fact that outside the Panthers the Hurricanes did not really beat anyone too tough during their 7 game winning streak and that the last team to beat the Canes’ was in fact the Tampa Bay Lightning who took 3 games of a 4 game series a few weeks ago.
Nevertheless the Hurricanes have to be happy with where they are and the fact that they have 5 different players who have now got 20 points or more shows their depth and that they do not rely on just one or two guys on a night to night basis.
James Reimer is the projected starter here and he has some decent stats with a .908 save percentage and a 2.71 goals against average, but that is not where this Hurricanes team wants to win or lose games as their mentality is firmly, ”we will outscore you”, as they are averaging a whopping 3.42 goals per game.
Detroit Red Wings
The Detroit Red Wings have only won one of their last 5 games, but that game came last time out and came against the defending Stanley Cup Champion Lightning who they were able to defeat 6-4.
Performances like that should have Red Wings fans excited about the future and in terms of there here and now I would be surprised if the Red Wings do not come into this game with a bit of a bounce in their step, as they now look to take down the other giant of the division.
Jonathan Bernier should counter James Reimer here in the Red Wings net who is having a quietly solid season considering he plays for the Red Wings holding down a save percentage of .910 and a goals against average around 3.

Free Carolina Hurricanes vs. Detroit Red Wings NHL Prediction:
The Carolina Hurricanes are big favorites here and they deserve to be, as they have the offensive weapons to really light up a team like the Red Wings and I do not trust the Red Wings to be able to come up with enough offense to counter that.
Also, the Red Wins were out-shot by the Lightning in that last game by only 20 shots, so it is not like they were stellar in that last game taking advantage of a bit of good fortune to take care of Tampa in that game.
