Detroit vs Boston: NHL Original Six Squads Clash in Matinee Action in the Motor City

Detroit vs Boston: NHL Original Six Squads Clash in Matinee Action in the Motor City

Detroit Red Wings: A quarter century of excellence continues

Always reloading, the Red Wings are looking to make it a quarter century of winning in the Motor City. After they posted a dismal 17-57-6 record - the Wings missed the playoffs during the 1985-86 NHL season but Detroit rebounded with a 34-6-10 mark the following year and began their current run of earning a postseason berth during 24 straight seasons. That's the longest ongoing streak in North American “Big Four” professional sports. Sitting in third place, one point behind Boston in the Atlantic Division, the Red Wings have rolled to a 10-5-2 record since the beginning of January.

Boston Bruins: Road warriors continue to roll in contests played outside of Beantown

Apart from the Washington Capitals, who win no matter where they play, no team has been hotter on the road than Boston who are 18-5-3 away from the TD Garden this season. Playing the third of a six game road trip, the Bruins have won two in a row, 6-2 in Winnipeg and 4-2 in Minnesota, and have now won six straight as visitors. After stumbling to a 1-4-1 record to begin the New Year, Boston has battled back with a 9-3-1 record over their last thirteen contests. Offense has carried Boston as their 2.96 GF/PG is the NHL's third best mark while their 2.73 GA/PG ranks 21st overall.

Boston vs Detroit NHL Decision: Tuukka Rask (20-16-5 GAA 2.55) facing Petr Mrazek (21-10-5 GAA 1.94) is the goaltending duel this afternoon. Now in his fourth season, Mrazek has grabbed the reigns as the Wings starting netminder and his 1.94 GAA is currently the best mark in the NHL. After allowing five goals on 32 shots, during the Bruins 9-2 home loss to Los Angeles on Tuesday, Rask rebounded with a 34-save performance during the Bruins win in Winnipeg two nights later. Detroit last played on Friday when they dropped a 3-2 (SO) decision at home versus the Colorado Avalanche. Understanding they are road warriors, Boston is playing back-to-back games and this is the Bruins fourth match in six days. We are rolling with the rested Red Wings here with a five-unit wager on the money line odds posted on the NHL betting board at the Bet365 online sportsbook.
