The Hurricanes have to be careful though, as any team can beat anyone in the NHL and if they overlook the Red Wings they might be in for a shock on home ice.
Detroit Red Wings
The Red Wings have only managed to beat one team in their last 6 starts, but that win was a 5-1 victory over the defending Stanley Cup champion Lightning, so they should feel like they can compete with anyone on their day.
The biggest problem for the Red Wings here in 2020 has been putting the puck in the back of the net, as this team is only averaging 2.17 goals per game and have a power play which only converts about 12% of their opportunities.
It is not like they have some lock down type of defense to off set the lack of scoring either, as they are giving up well over 3 goals per game which can be put down to their inexperienced blue line and occasional poor goalkeeping.
Jonathan Bernier is the projected starter in this spot coming in here with very average statistics of around a .900 save percentage and close to a 3.00 goals against average and I would not count on those numbers improving if he does in fact end up between the pipes, as the Carolina Hurricanes bring one awesome offense with them.
The Carolina Hurricanes are coming in here with three straight wins in their back pocket, so they should be feeling great that they can extend their streak to 4 here against possibly the worst team in the league.
This Hurricanes team has been getting the job done more with their defense as of late only allowing 2 goals in their last 3 games which included two shutouts, and once again they should like their chances of picking up another shutout against a team who has really struggled to find the back of the net.
Sebastian Aho is clearly the guy to look out for on this offense which averages 3.18 goals per game, as he already has 16 goals and 21 assists and does not look to be slowing down at all.
NHL Betting Trends:

Free Detroit Red Wings vs. Carolina Hurricanes NHL Prediction:
You likely need to lay 2.5 goals here in order to get this close to even money, but I am willing to do that in this spot, as Carolina are in a tight race for the division and I see them coming into this game with a ton of motivation.
They also outmatch the Red Wings in nearly every category and Detroit, although they did pick up that win against Tampa, have seen them lose a little bit of that edge which made them a bit more competitive earlier in the year.
