The Detroit Red Wings on the other hand are a team who does not need to worry about the playoffs in 2021, as they are a team in complete rebuild mode which should mean the Hurricanes should have no problems here, but there is a reason we play these games and that is because surprises happen.
I am sure the Hurricanes overlooked the Red Wings at least a little bit in that first game, as they easily could have lost that last game and I am pretty confident they won’t be making that mistake twice, as a loss here could really put a dent in this team’s chances of finishing in the top spot in the division.
The Hurricanes have put together not only an impressive winning streak, but also an impressive season as a whole off of the back of their stellar offense which averages 3.37 goals per game with an outstanding 31.8% success rate on the power-play.
The offense comes as a collective in Carolina, as the Hurricanes have 5 guys with 20 points or more, but the guy I would look out for is Vincent Trochek, who has looked awfully good this year putting up a team-leading 13 goals to go along with 10 assists.
James Reimer is currently projected to be the starting goalie, although that is unconfirmed so do check the news prior to puck drop, and he has been getting it done for Carolina despite not having amazing stats, as this Hurricanes team often times just has way more firepower than their opponents.
Detroit Red Wings
Outside of a crazy 6-4 upset against the Tampa Bay Lightning this Red Wings team has not done much winning lately only picking up 1 win in their last 6 outings. Those poor performances now have the team in last place in the division with 3 points between them and the next team up the Nashville Predators.
Anthony Mantha was the hero in that upset win over Tampa a few games back and he would be one of the few offensive players to look out for in this spot, as he does have 8 goals and 6 assists which does make him the team leader in goal-scoring which tells you just how bad it has been in Detroit.
Jonathan Bernier is the unconfirmed starter here and he has been having a very nice season and honestly without him this team would look a whole lot worse, as the veteran goalie comes into this matchup with a .912 save percentage and GAA just short of 3.

Free Carolina Hurricanes vs. Detroit Red Wings NHL Prediction:
I think the Carolina Hurricanes will come into this game focused with plenty of motivation to win given their place in the division. The Hurricanes will know the Red Wings will not roll over now after that first game and I can see that clicking the Hurricanes into a different gear here, so in order to reduce the juice on the Hurricanes a bit I am going to ride with them on the puckline here, as a multiple goal win seems likely here for the visitors.
