Pick

The Red Wings have started the season playing extremely well and even though they didn’t play great in their last game, they were still able to pick up a point. Winnipeg has won two games in a row, but they also allowed 10 total goals in the two games prior to that. Detroit needs to get better goaltending from Husso, but they have had two very good starts from Reimer. The Red Wings have gone over 6.5 total goals in four straight games and I like the over here once again.
