Blackhawks vs Red Wings Betting Prediction

Detroit had their three game winning streak snapped on Wednesday night, but they played pretty well against a very good Rangers team and had a chance to win that game late. Chicago has won two of their last three games, but they are only 4-7-0 on the road. The Red Wings defense has been a nice surprise so far this season and they have only allowed six goals in their last four games. Detroit is on the second game of a back to back and Chicago has played better recently, so I think it is worth a shot taking Chicago with the plus money here.
