Detroit won its season opener Thursday night via a 4-2 home victory over the Wild. Ottawa is 0-0-1 as it lost its opener at home via a 5-4 overtime defeat to the Capitals. The Red Wings won three out of four meetings last year with the over-under going 2-2.

The Senators received two goals from Mark Stone in the OT loss to Washington while Chris Wideman and Derick Brassard each had one goal. Brassard added two assists, while Bobby Ryan also had two assists. Wideman and Dion Phaneuf notched one assist apiece. Craig Anderson stopped 19 of 23 shots.

Bet on Red Wings vs. Senators

The Red Wings surprised many people by winning their opener and showed there is some good young talent in the mix such as Larkin and Mantha. The problem is Detroit also has many veterans who haven't produced to the level of their contract, leaving the team in flux as it opens a new arena. Ottawa will be looking for a bounceback performance after the difficult OT loss and the Red Wings are the perfect candidate, especially since Detroit won the season series a year ago.
