The Pittsburgh Penguins head to the Motor City to take on the Red Wings as both teams try for two important points with the regular season winding down.
The Penguins have saved their best hockey for the perfect time. Before an ugly 3-0 loss at the hands of the New Jersey Devils on Thursday, the Pens had rattled off six straight wins to pull into 5th place in the crowded Eastern Conference.
Pittsburgh is right behind the New York Rangers for 2nd place in the Metropolitan Division and has a very good chance of hosting a playoff series once the postseason begins.
Even without Evgeni Malkin in the lineup, the Penguins offense has been one of the hottest in the NHL.
Pittsburgh has averaged nearly 4 goals per game over its last six games, including a 4 goals per game average in its last three road games.
Detroit Red Wings
Detroit’s coveted playoff streak is on the line with less than 10 games remaining in the regular season. The Wings are desperate for all of the wins they can muster from here on out.
Detroit’s road play has been especially suspect as the Red Wings have dropped 10 of their last 14 games on the road. Luckily for them, this one’s at home.
After nabbing a pair of back-to-back road wins, the Red Wings were clobbered by the Tampa Bay Lighting on Tuesday. Detroit has struggled both offensively and defensively this season, and now the Wings welcome the hottest team in hockey to Joe Louis Arena.
The Red Wings nearly blew a four-goal lead to the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday, but held on for the 4-3 win and two very critical points in the standings.
Detroit is currently outside of the playoff picture, but still just six points out of 3rd in the Eastern Conference.

Free Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Detroit Red Wings NHL Hockey Prediction
Despite being blanked at home to New Jersey, the Penguins are still one of the hottest teams in the league. However, the Red Wings are desperate. Detroit has struggled badly down the stretch, but those struggles have almost all been on the road.
The Wings have played extremely well at home since the beginning of February and I think they’ll steal one against a very dangerous Penguins team.
