On the second night of a back-to-back after facing the Vancouver Canucks, the Minnesota Wild head to Joe Louis Arena in Detroit to take on the Red Wings.
Detroit, coming off a 2-1 overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning, will look to finish strong in the last few games ever in famous Joe Louis Arena.
In what has been a very high-quality season for the Minnesota Wild under first-year head coach Bruce Boudreau, the team has had a lot of issues on both sides of the ice over the past 10 games.
The Wild are just 2-8-0 in the last 10 games and the team’s quality of play has diminished considerably.
Defensively, the Wild have given up 3.4 goals per game over the last 10 games. On the year, the team has been one of the NHL’s best in that category. Minnesota gives up 2.51 goals per game on the season, but has had issues recently.
The issues have affected the play in between the pipes as well. Goaltender Devan Dubnyk has faced a lot of dangerous shots and allowed quite a few more goals than normal for him.
On the season, he still has solid stats, including a 2.17 goals against average and a .927 save percentage.
Offense was a strong point all season as well up until the last 10 games. The Wild have averaged just 2.4 goals per game in that stretch.
Detroit Red Wings
It’s been a rough year for the Detroit Red Wings, who are just a few games away from saying goodbye to the beloved Joe Louis Arena.
The Red Wings are going to miss the playoffs this season, despite playing in the weakest division in the NHL, the Atlantic.
Very little has gone right for this team, which is 25th in the league in goals scored and 22nd in goals against. Offensively, the Red Wings average just 2.48 goals per game, while on defense, the team gives up 2.95 per game.
The Red Wings have just one 20-plus-goal scorer in Tomas Tatar. He’s been solid all year, tallying 21 goals and 18 assists. Over his last five games, he has four goals and two assists.
Center Dylan Larkin hasn’t had the sophomore season that many were hoping for, but he has still done some nice things on the ice.
This season, he has 15 goals and 12 assists, including two goals and an assist over his last five games.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Minnesota is 0-5 ATS in the last five games
- Detroit is 4-8 SU in the last 12 games
