Boston enters with a 14-9-3-1 record after a 3-1 home win over the Islanders Saturday night. Detroit is 11-13-5-1 following a 2-1 home overtime loss to the Panthers on Monday night. The Bruins won three out of four meetings last season, while the over went 3-1.

Bet on Bruins vs. Red Wings

The Red Wings are struggling badly this season and couldn't take advantage of the early lead against the Panthers. Although Howard has mostly been fantastic in net this season, poor defense and a lack of playmakers have held Detroit down. Although the home team has typically had success in this series, take the better team here. That is the Bruins.
