Pick

The Red Wings started the season playing very well, but they have suffered two losses in a row and will play one of the best teams in the NHL here. Boston finally lost their first game of the season, and it came in bizarre fashion, as the Bruins blew a 3-1 lead late in the third. Boston’s defense has been incredible so far this year, but they will face a Detroit team that is scoring over 4.30 goals per game. I think this game could go either way, as Detroit is much better than they were last year, so I am going to take the Red Wings with the plus money.
