(The Spread) – In what has turned out to be the series of the second round, the Red Wings and Sharks will put everything on the line tonight in Game 7.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com have made the Sharks –126 money line favorites over the visiting Red Wings, who are +116 on the ML. The over/under total for this game is currently 5.5 goals.

After building a 3-0 series lead, the Sharks have completely fallen apart in Games 4-6. On Tuesday, the Red Wings used three third period goals to beat San Jose 3-1 and even up the best-of-seven series.

Goaltender Jimmy Howard was once again one of the unsung heroes, saving 24 of the 25 shots that he faced in Game 7. Meanwhile, Detroit peppered San Jose goalie Antti Niemi with 44 shots in the victory while scoring on 42 of those attempts. Henrik Zetterberg, Darren Helm and Valterri Filppula all finished with one goal apiece.

NHL Playoff Free Pick: I think the Sharks will complete the choke-job tonight at home. They’re completely out of sync offensively, they’re frustrated (as evidence of the chippiness that took place at the end of Game 6) and they have completely lost all of the momentum. According to latest NHL trends, the Red Wings are 6-1 in their last seven games following a win and 8-3 in their last 11 games overall. Meanwhile, the Sharks are 3-7 in their last 10 games playing on one day of rest and haven’t won since Game 3 of this series. At +116, the price on the Red Wings is just too good to pass up.
