The Red Wings are likely looking forward to inviting the Blackhawks into the Little Caesars Arena, as they have looked way better as of late and are not at all the historically bad team they were made out to be in the preseason.
The Balckhawks are coming off of a 4-1 loss to this Detroit team, so they are very much aware they are not pushovers, so given what happened in that last game I would look for Chciago to throw everything at Detroit on Saturday.
You can’t have enough good things to say about Patrick Kane this year, as he continues on his Hall of Fame career adding 14 goals and 40 assists this year and that is with one of his main line mates down this year in Toews, so it could very well have been a down year but that never happened.
Detroit Red Wings
The Detroit Red Wings are looking ahead to the off season which was shown by Steve Yzerman’s move to ship Anthony Mantha to the Washington Capitals, as this team’s focus turns to the future of the club.
The Detroit Red Wings have not been awful in terms of defending and goal tending this year, but their main issue has been putting the puck in the net with this team only averaging 2.27 goals per game, and just a couple goals in each game is not going to get you very far, so it is a testament to the rest of their team that they have the record they do despite that poor offense.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Blackhawks are 4-1 in their last 5 games following a loss of 3 or more goals.

- Red Wings are 6-15 in their last 21 games following a win.
- Red Wings are 14-37 in their last 51 vs. a team with a losing record.
- Red Wings are 21-58 in their last 79 when their opponent scores 2 goals or less in their previous game.
Free Chicago Blackhawks vs. Detroit Red Wings NHL Prediction:
I do like the Chicago Blackhawks in this spot quite a bit, as they do have way more talent then the Red Wings do right now and -145 on the moneyline looks great despite this team just losing to the Red Wings in their last game.
I expect them to be way more prepared and disciplined this time around, and I just feel like it is going to be tough for the Red Wings to contain the likes of Kane and Debrincat this time around.
Kevin Lankinen is also likely going to start here for the Balchawks, and whenever he is in net it gives the Blackhawks a boost, as he has been stellar at times this year even though his numbers do not blow you away.
