Having won just one of their last nine outings, the Detroit Red Wings (8th in Atlantic Division) will be trying to pick up an odd win while visiting Manitoba, with the hosting Winnipeg Jets (2nd in Central) returning home after a defeat in Minnesota…

Wings Get Beaten By Habs

The latest five-game homestand of the Detroit Red Wings (16-22-7) finished with a 1-3-1 total after the team recorded its second consecutive defeat (0-2-0) following a 3-2 loss to the Montreal Canadiens at Little Caesars Arena on Tuesday. With that, the Wings have now dropped eight of their past nine fixtures (1-6-2) and have managed to register just two victories in their last 14 contests (2-9-3). Detroit is 8th in the Atlantic Division with 39 points from 45 games, trailing a playoff berth in the Eastern Conference by 13 points. Dylan Larkin leads the team with 18 goals and 41 points.

Goalie Jimmy Howard made 22 saves versus Montreal, taking his current performance status to 11-12-5 for the year with a 2.79 GAA and a .916 save percentage. He has posted a 2-6-2 career record against the Winnipeg Jets with a 3.21 GAA and a .906 save percentage. The Red Wings, meanwhile, are netting the 8th lowest quantity of goals per game so far this year (2.76), while allowing the 7th highest amount on the defensive end (3.31). They are 21st in power play with a 17.1% success rate and 20th in penalty kill with 78.5% efficiency.

Jets Falter In Minnesota

The Winnipeg Jets (27-14-2) lost for the first time in three contests (2-1-0) after being edged out with a count of 3-2 by the Minnesota Wild at Xcel Energy Center yesterday. It was Winnipeg’s fourth defeat in the last seven fixtures (3-4-0), with the team still having won 14 of its last 20 games (14-6-0). The Jets currently occupy the 2nd position of the Central Division with 56 points from 43 contests. Blake Wheeler leads Winnipeg with 55 points (7 goals, 48 assists), while Mark Scheifele (54 points) and Patrik Laine (32 points) are tied on a team-high 24 goals.

Goalie Connor Hellebuyck (19-13-1 on the year with a 2.87 GAA and a .908 save percentage) made 19 saves in Minnesota, but will vacate the crease for Laurent Brossoit for the visit of Detroit. Brossoit is 8-1-1 for the ongoing campaign with a 2.11 GAA and a .939 save percentage, and has won his only previous start against the Red Wings, allowing just a single goal on 28 shots in a 2-1 victory for Winnipeg back on Oct. 26. The Jets are 8th in most goals scored per game (3.42), 12th in least goals given up on average (2.84), 2nd best in power play (28.6%) and 14th in penalty kill (80.2%).

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Even though the Red Wings have not been getting any positive results lately, their overall performances have not been all that bad. In fact, visiting Winnipeg while the Jets are playing with no rest is a pretty good opportunity for Detroit to get back in the win column, as the team has already won half of its last four trips to Manitoba. The Jets have also been quite off form when playing on Fridays, losing on four of the past five occasions. So, don’t be too surprised to see the visitors claim an unexpected victory in this one.

Prediction: Detroit Red Wings

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Ten of the very last 11 meetings between the two sides in Winnipeg have finished above the total. So, another goal-fest is definitely a given in this case. Three of the last four contests of the Jets played on the second night of a back-to-back set have already seen more than six snipes netted, while 18 of the previous 26 road outings of the Red Wings have all been high-scoring affairs.

Prediction: Over 6.5
