Red Wings vs Hurricanes Betting Prediction

Detroit comes into this matchup trying to stay in the Wild Card race in the Eastern Conference, but they have played pretty poorly over the last few weeks. The Red Wings are currently on the outside looking in for the playoffs and they are coming off of a crushing loss to the Capitals, who they are chasing in the standings. Carolina has lost two of their last three games, but they are 24-9-4 at home this season. The Hurricanes are a very solid team and they are trying to catch the Rangers for first in the Metro. Carolina is the much better defensive team in this matchup and I expect them to get back on track with a strong defensive effort. Take the under here.
