Senators vs Red Wings Betting Prediction

The Red Wings come into this game playing very well over the last couple of weeks and they are looking to head into the All-Star break with a ton of momentum with a win. The Red Wings are one of the better offensive teams in the NHL, but their defense/goaltending has been much better recently. Ottawa has played better over their last six or seven games, but they are only 6-13-0 on the road. The Senators are not a good defensive team and I think they are going to struggle to stop the Detroit offensive attack. Take the Red Wings here.
