Detroit have a disappointing away trip
The game against St. Louis will be Detroit’s first home game since November 14. Jeff Blashill’s team has played four straight away games and lost them all. Moreover, the Red Wings conceded five pucks each to Columbus, Dallas, and Vegas. More importantly, in their final game of the tourney, Detroit failed to defeat Arizona, 1-2 in overtime.
The debacle proved Detroit’s level today. Yes, the team has made tremendous progress compared to last season, but they’re still only at the beginning of the road to return to at least a playoff contender.
St. Louis have reassured the fans and themselves
The Blues have given their fans little reason to cheer lately. Their increasing number of defeats has made Craig Berube’s team look wary of their prospects. However, as the previous game against Vegas showed, the huffing and puffing were almost without fire. Having conceded two goals midway through the first period of the home game, the Blues pulled themselves together, allowed nothing more to their opponent in the remaining 50+ minutes, and struck the Knights 5 times. Vladimir Tarasenko had two assists. St. Louis were once again second in the Central Division, one point behind leading Minnesota.
Expert Betting Tips
The success of Detroit in the upcoming match is very likely. After the unsuccessful trip, Jeff Blashill’s team will be extremely motivated, and in general, the season will go well in the home walls. The Red Wings have already beaten such powerful opponents as Edmonton, Vegas, Pittsburgh, and Columbus, while Florida and Tampa Bay have defeated Detroit outside of regulation time. In short, St. Louis, unstable of late, will have a tough time in Michigan.
