The Detroit Red Wings and Nashville Predators meet Tuesday in NHL action at the Bridgestone Arena.
The Detroit Red Wings need a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Detroit Red Wings are averaging 2.3 goals per game and are scoring on 12.1 percent of their power play opportunities. Robby Fabbri leads Detroit with nine goals, Filip Hronek has 17 assists and Dylan Larkin has 91 shots on goal. Defensively, the Detroit Red Wings are allowing 3.3 goals per game and are killing 71.9 percent of their opponents power plays. Thomas Greiss has given up 53 goals on 462 shots faced and Jonathan Bernier has allowed 43 goals on 523 shots.
The Nashville Predators look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Nashville Predators are averaging 2.3 goals per game and are scoring on 19 percent of their power play opportunities. Filip Forsberg leads Nashville with 11 goals, Roman Josi has 14 assists and Viktor Arvidsson has 103 shots on goal. Defensively, the Nashville Predators are allowing 3.2 goals per game and are killing 70.5 percent of their opponents power plays. Juuse Saros has allowed 36 goals on 412 shots faced and Pekka Rinne has allowed 58 goals on 572 shots.
The Red Wings are 10-41 in their last 51 road games and 20-63 in their last 83 overall. The Predators are 8-1 in their last 9 games as a home favorite and 6-2 in their last 8 games as a favorite. The under is 2-0-2 in Red Wings last 4 overall. The under is 7-2 in Predators last 9 games as a favorite. The Red Wings are 7-1 in the last 8 meetings in Nashville and 12-4 in the last 16 meetings. The underdog is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings. The road team is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.
The Detroit Red Wings are back in one of those funks where it's hard to back them with any confidence, especially on the road where they've had no success even dating back to last season. The Nashville Predators have had issues stringing wins together this season, but they've shown recent signs of life and they've been dominant in the favorite role for the most part. Price is a bit steep, but I still like the Preds to get the job done on their home ice.
