The Detroit Red Wings need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Detroit Red Wings are averaging 2.2 goals per game and are scoring on 11.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Anthony Mantha leads Detroit with 11 goals, Filip Hronek has 20 assists and Dylan Larkin has 120 shots on goal. Defensively, the Detroit Red Wings are allowing 3.2 goals per game and are killing 75 percent of their opponents power plays. Thomas Greiss has given up 71 goals on 686 shots faced and Jonathan Bernier has allowed 50 goals on 555 shots.
The Carolina Hurricanes look for a win after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Carolina Hurricanes are averaging 3.2 goals per game and are scoring on 29.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Sebastian Aho leads Carolina with 17 goals, Dougie Hamilton has 27 assists and Andrei Svechnikov has 111 shots on goal.

The Red Wings are 8-45 in their last 53 road games and 28-82 in their last 110 overall. The Hurricanes are 14-6 in their last 20 home games and 15-6 in their last 21 overall. The over is 3-0-1 in Red Wings last 4 overall. The under is 8-3-3 in Hurricanes last 14 overall. The Red Wings are 9-3 in the last 12 meetings in Carolina and 2-6 in the last 8 meetings. The road team is 15-7 in the last 22 meetings. The favorite is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
The Detroit Red Wings aren't a team you want to make a habit of backing, as they have major issues offensively, they don't string wins together and they've been god awful on the road dating back to last season. The Carolina Hurricanes are one of the more consistent teams in the league. With all that said, the Red Wings have won three of the six meetings this season against the Hurricanes, which includes a massive underdog cash on Saturday. These prices are insane. I'll take a shot in the dark with the Red Wings.
