The Detroit Red Wings have had some difficulties getting anything going in the early parts of the season, but will be heading into Wednesday’s game off of a 5-1 win over Ottawa.
They will be looking for their second win in a row against a New York Ranger team that beat up on the San Jose Sharks 7-4 the last time they were on the ice.
The Red Wings have failed to come up with a win during their previous 6 games at the Garden.
Detroit Red Wings
The Detroit Red Wings are not the team we have grown accustomed to watching over the last 25 years. That is how long it has been since Detroit has missed the playoffs, a streak that could be in jeopardy this season.
They were finally able to put a notch in the win column Monday night against Ottawa after dropping their first two games of the season.
Petr Mrazek was able to grab the win for Detroit and currently has a record of 1-2 with a 3.03 GAA on the season. He has won the only game he has faced the Rangers in his career and will look to defend his 1.96 GAA against New York.
The Red Wings have put the puck in the net 10 times in there three games this season while allowing their opponents to score a total of 11.
Detroit finished last season as one of the stronger defenses in the NHL last year, only allowing an average of 2.67 goals per game off of 29.7 shots.
They were 24th when it came to penalty kills, only allowing their opponents to convert on 18.5 percent of their opportunities.
New York Rangers
The New York Rangers have not had an issue lighting the lamp this season, scoring 14 goals on their way to 2-1 start.
They had their best offensive game of the season last Monday in a 7-4 beat down of the San Jose Sharks.
The game was a team effort with each of the goals coming from a different player. They were able to get the seven goals off of a total of only 29 shots.
The last two were scored in an empty net, none the less it was still an offensive performance worth writing home about.
Antti Raanta was able to stop 27 of 31 shots against the Sharks, but Henrik Lundqvist should be between the pipes on Wednesday night. He is 1-1 on the season with a 3.03 GAA.
Throughout his career, Lundqvist has a 5-3-2 record with a 2.17 GAA against the Red Wings.
The Rangers finished the year ranked 7th in the NHL last season with an average of 2.84 goals per game, while coming 26th with an average of 28.5 shots per game.

Free Detroit Red Wings vs. New York Rangers NHL Hockey Prediction
The New York Rangers are a no brainer in this one. The Red Wings lack the defense to keep up with the explosive New York offense.
Madison Garden is not the place to find your first road win of the season and the win Detroit has had at home came against an Ottawa team that is not exactly up to par.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: New York -150
I like the Rangers here with the total staying under 5.5. The Rangers are far better than Detroit with the puck and also have the edge in the goal.
