Detroit Red Wings vs. St. Louis Blues, 8PM ET (View Matchup)

The home team has won the last 5 meetings in this series, but the Red Wings are 17-7-1 in their last 25 games in St. Louis. Detroit is 7-2 in their last 9 games against the Western Conference while St. Louis is 0-5 in their last 5 games playing on 1 day of rest. My pick is with the underdog Wings as they have the better team but are the road dog here. Detroit should be able to find a way to sneak past St. Louis, which has won just 4 in its last 10 games.
