The Red Wings are 13-40 in their last 53 road games, 2-6 in their last 8 Friday games and 12-41 in their last 53 overall. The Rangers are 5-2 in their last 7 home games, 5-2 in their last 7 vs. Eastern Conference and 8-24 in their last 32 Friday games. The under is 9-2 in Red Wings last 11 Friday games. The over is 13-3-2 in Rangers last 18 overall. The Red Wings are 3-8 in the last 11 meetings in New York and 5-1 in the last 6 meetings. The home team is 13-5 in the last 18 meetings. The under is 10-1-1 in the last 12 meetings in New York and 20-4-3 in the last 27 meetings.

The Detroit Red Wings can't win on the road to save their life and the constant defensive issues makes them that much tougher to get behind. You're sitting on a pile of cash if you've blindly faded the Red Wings this season, especially on the road. The New York Rangers are quietly improving their play over the last couple of weeks and have played their best hockey by far at home. While the Red Wings have won five of the last six meetings against the Rangers, I'll side with the home team in this contest.
