The Carolina Hurricanes and the Detroit Red Wings meet in NHL action from Little Caesars Arena on Saturday night.

The Carolina Hurricanes will look to build some steam after opening the year with a 3-0 blanking of these same Detroit Red Wings last time out. Nino Niederreiter opened the scoring for the ‘Canes just 3:38 into the game and that goal held up until Ryan Dzingel added an insurance marker late in the 3rd period and Andrei Svechnikov put up a 3rd goal on an empty net to ice the win and send Detroit back empty-handed, which is a familiar feeling for this Red Wings team dating back to last year.

Petr Mrazek got the win and shutout against his former team, stopping all 14 shots faced in the winning effort while Thomas Greiss took the loss for the Wings after allowing two goals on 42 shots faced in the losing effort for Detroit.

Carolina is 6-2 in their last 8 road games and 54-26 in their last 80 games as a favorite while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall. Detroit is 10-42 in their last 52 games overall and 8-20 in their last 28 home games while the under is 9-4-1 in their last 14 games as a home underdog. The favorite is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings between these two teams.

These two teams came with different expectations in the opener, but it was Carolina who lived up to them and now we’re in the same ballpark line wise as we were in the first meeting. I expect there to be adjustments made and as such I think we have a lower scoring game on our hands in this one so I’ll side with the under as my free pick but my stronger play is on the side and I have that available as a premium pick that you can find here.
