Red Wings at Blackhawks: What Bettors Need to Know

Detroit Red Wings at Chicago Blackhawks (-208, 5)

Series is tied 3-3.

The Detroit Red Wings are in the same position they were in during their Western Conference first-round series against the Pacific Division champion Anaheim Ducks. This time, however, the top-seeded Chicago Blackhawks have all the momentum on their side as they host seventh-seeded Detroit in Game 7 of their second-round matchup on Wednesday. The Red Wings trailed the Ducks 3-2 before winning Game 6 at home and emerging with a 3-2 victory in the decisive seventh game in Anaheim.

Detroit captured three straight games against Original Six rival Chicago after dropping the series opener but have been unable to put away the Presidents' Trophy winner. The Blackhawks were held to a total of two goals - both from Patrick Kane - in their three losses before their offense began clicking. Andrew Shaw scored twice in a 4-1 home triumph in Game 5 and Chicago erupted for three tallies in the first 9:43 of the third period on Monday to erase a one-goal deficit and avoid elimination a second straight time with a 4-3 win.

ABOUT THE RED WINGS: Chicago has done a tremendous job shutting down Detroit's top two offensive weapons. Captain Henrik Zetterberg has recorded three assists over the first six games of the series, while center Pavel Datsyuk has scored one goal and set up one other. Considering their past production in Game 7s, the dynamic duo is being counted on to help the Red Wings avoid a total collapse. Zetterberg has collected eight points in seven career seventh games and Datsyuk has recorded five points in six Game 7s. "In games like these, that's when they shine the most," defenseman Niklas Kronwall told the Detroit Free Press. "They seem to find that comfort zone and just go out there and produce and make things happen out of nowhere." Center Damien Brunner has scored three of his team-leading five goals in this series.

ABOUT THE BLACKHAWKS: Right wing Jamal Mayers, who has yet to appear in a game this postseason, admitted his actions during **** warmups on Monday were intended to unnerve the Red Wings. Mayers intentionally shot several pucks into Detroit's net with Jimmy Howard still standing in the crease, earning himself a fine from the NHL. "I was trying to get under their skin, I'm not going to hide behind it or lie to you," Mayers told the Detroit Free Press. Despite staving off elimination twice, the Blackhawks realize there's still work to do. "It's all for nothing if we can't win the next game," defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson told the Chicago Sun-Times. Marian Hossa added, "We still know if you lose, it's all a waste." Hossa (six) and Michal Handzus (four) are the only Chicago players to have appeared in more than one Game 7.


* Under is 7-1-4 in the last 12 meetings in Chicago.
* Under is 19-6-4 in the last 29 meetings.
* Home team is 5-2 in the last seven meetings.
* Red Wings are 3-10 in the last 13 meetings.
* Red Wings are 1-5 in the last six meetings in Chicago.


1. The winner earns a trip to the conference final to face reigning Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles. The Blackhawks would begin the series at home, while the Red Wings would start on the road.

2. The Blackhawks became the 49th team in NHL history to force a seventh game after trailing 3-1 in a series. Half of the first 48 teams have won Game 7.

3. Chicago's Joel Quenneville is 0-5 as a coach in playoff series against the Red Wings.

2013 NHL Playoffs

Presidents' Cup winner Blackhawks forced Game 7 at home with wins in Games 5-6; they are 5-1 at home in playoffs, with only loss in Game 2 of this series. Five of Hawks' seven playoff wins are by 3+ goals; they're 2-3 in games decided by 1-2 goals. Detroit has same amount of power plays as Chicago in series, but is 1-21 on power play, while Chicago is 4-21. Detroit is 3-4 on road in playoffs, winning a Game 7 in Anaheim, but they led this series 3-1, then had 2-1 lead after two periods in Game 6 and couldn't close deal, doubtful they're going to win second consecutive Game 7 on road. Hosts are 19-4 in this round of playoffs, with under 12-7-4, 2-1-3 in this series. Under is 15-4-4 in last 23 series games.
