The under has consistently hit when the Habs play on the road. The under is 21-7-6 in the Canadiens' last 34 games outside of Montreal and is also 28-12-15 in the team's last 55 games when playing the fourth game of a 4-in-6 days situation.

The under is also 3-1-1 in the Red Wings' last five home games and is 23-11-4 in their last 38 games when playing opponents from the Atlantic Division. These two teams tend to cash the under for bettors when they play each other as well, as the under is 4-1-1 in the last six meetings and 6-2-1 in the last nine meetings in Detroit.

Petr Mrazek allowed three goals on 18 shots in a relief appearance against the Lightning on Tuesday but that was an ugly game overall for most Wings players. Mrazek was also dealing with an illness, which is why he served as Jimmy Howard's understudy that night. Look for the 24-year-old to play lights out tonight.
