The Detroit Red Wings and Nashville Predators meet Thursday in NHL action at the Bridgestone Arena.
The Detroit Red Wings need a win after losing 10 of their last 12 games. The Detroit Red Wings are averaging 1.9 goals per game and are scoring on 9.3 percent of their power play opportunities. Tyler Bertuzzi leads Detroit with five goals, Filip Hronek has six assists and Dylan Larkin has 42 shots on goal. Defensively, the Detroit Red Wings are allowing 3.3 goals per game and are killing 70 percent of their opponents power plays. Thomas Greiss has given up 13 goals on 129 shots faced and Jonathan Bernier has allowed 13 goals on 109 shots.
The Nashville Predators need a win after losing five of their last six games. The Nashville Predators are averaging 2.4 goals per game and are scoring on 15.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Filip Forsberg leads Nashville with six goals, Viktor Arvidsson has five assists and Roman Josi has 44 shots on goal.

The Red Wings are 10-44 in their last 54 road games and 13-52 in their last 65 overall. The Predators are 7-0 in their last 7 Thursday games and 1-5 in their last 6 overall. The under is 5-1 in Red Wings last 6 overall. The under is 3-1-1 in Predators last 5 home games. The Red Wings are 6-0 in the last 6 meetings in Nashville and 10-2 in the last 12 meetings.
The Detroit Red Wings are making a case as the worst team in the league again, as they have nothing going for them right now and the offense doesn't improve from game to game. The Nashville Predators are having their issues as well, but they've also had a rather tough schedule and they've shown more effort offensively. The Predators have a better chance of turning things around than the Red Wings do. Give me the Preds at home and the PL to shave down the ML price.
