Nobody is giving Detroit much of a chance when they travel to Winnipeg on Friday night. The Red Wings are an OK -10-1 on the road but Winnipeg is a tough place to go get a win as the Jets are 15-6-1 on their own ice.
Detroit Red Wings
Detroit is having another down year and that’s continued recently with a 2-6-2 record over their last 10. The Wings have lost 8 of 9 but somehow scored a 4-3 win in Nashville on January 5th. Detroit is 1-3 their last four road games, but on 12/20 they beat Carolina 4-1 as +210 underdogs. Is this secretly a dangerous team?
Jimmy Howard takes the net for Detroit with just 1 win in his last 8 starts. Howard has allowed 3+ goals in six straight games which isn’t a good trend as Winnipeg’s offense has really found a groove lately.
Winnipeg has been playing angry lately after an 0-4 shutout loss in Pittsburgh. They’ve won two games in a row, outscoring Dallas and Colorado by a combined 12-5. It’s a nice home bounceback after the Jets suffered back-to-back losses at Bell MTS, 1-4 to Calgary and 1-3 to Minnesota at the end of December.
Laurent Brossoit is probable to get the start Friday ahead of Connor Hellebuyck. Brossoit has won five in a row including a shutout his last time out. Hellebuyck is in net Friday night so he’ll be unavailable in the back-to-back. The backup goaltender hasn’t started a game since December 23rd however so he could come out a bit rusty.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Red Wings are 16-35 their last 51 road games
- Red Wings are 6-16 their last 22 vs. Western Conference
- Jets are 14-5 their last 19 overall
Free Detroit Red Wings vs. Winnipeg Jets NHL Prediction:
There’s not a whole lot of upside on Detroit in this game except for maybe the fact that Winnipeg has their backup goaltender in net. The Red Wings are on the road for the first time since 12/29 so it will be interesting to see how they react to traveling again.
Detroit will have had two nights off ahead of Friday’s game whereas Winnipeg is playing in the B2B after traveling back-and-forth to Minnesota. Is fatigue going to be enough to swing this game the Red Wings’ way?
