The NHL is back in action today as the Detroit Red Wings will clash with Pittsburgh Pirates.
The Detroit comes in off a 4-1 road loss to Boston Saturday afternoon. And on the other side, Pittsburgh dropped Montreal 4-1 at home Friday night in their last contest.
Detroit Red Wings Form
The Red Wings are one of the worsts teams in the league this season. Also, as I have predicted, they suffered an expected defeat in the game against the commanding Bruins. And now, the Red Wings entered Saturday night in the basement of the Atlantic Division, 36 points behind Toronto for the final guaranteed playoff spot. Additionally, they are 52 back of division-leading Boston. Furthermore, in the wild card picture, the Red Wings stand 39 points behind the Flyers for the second wild-card spot.
On the offensive side of the game, the Red Wings score an average of 2.02 goals per game.
As for the defensive side of the ice, Detroit is conceding an average of 3.71 points per game.
Pittsburgh Penguins Form
The Penguins are playing well. Moreover, they have won 4 of their last 6 games. And that form put the Penguins on the second spot in the Metropolitan Division and stood three points back of division-leading Washington. Therefore, it is safe to say that the Penguins are one of the main Stanley Cup contenders this season.
On the offensive side of the game, the Penguins score an average of 3.27 goals per game on the year.
And for the defensive side of the game, the Penguins are solid in their own zone as they allow 2.70 goals per contest.
The Red Wings are not showing any signs that they can turn it around. Also, their confidence is low as they have lots of defeats. Additionally, they are playing the second game of a back to back here and their third game in four nights here. And on the other side, the Penguins are a great team and they have been showing solid performances this season. Therefore, take the Penguins to win this one.
