Red Wings vs. Blackhawks Prediction

I’m on the Red Wings here. Detroit’s the far better team playing far better hockey right now and the Blackhawks are just struggling to put any positive results together. They have a slightly better chance being at home, but slightly isn’t going to cut it here. Give me Detroit in this one.
