The Boston Bruins visit Joe Louis Arena today when they take on the Detroit Red Wings. The Boston Bruins have won 4 of the last 5 meetings with the Red Wings but they are just 2-5 in their last 7 meetings in Detroit. Another angle to look at in this game is the under and that only 5 of the last 17 meetings have gone over the total.
Head to Head trends
Bruins are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
Bruins are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Detroit.
Detroit Red Wings (+103)
The Detroit Red Wings had a bit of an off year last season finishing with 93 points and just squeaking into the playoffs. The Red Wings big problem last season was their play at home which is usually pretty good but they were actually 5 games under .500 at home last season. So far this season the Wings are 1-1 they actually beat the Bruins 2-1 in their home opener and then lost a close one to Anaheim. Both of the Wings games have gone under the total and that’s kind of how I see the Red Wings this season as a low scoring defensive team.
Detroit Red Wings Trends
Red Wings are 472-229-27 in their last 728 home games.
Red Wings are 1-4 in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference.
Boston Bruins (-113)
The Boston Bruins had the best record in hockey last season and finished with 117 points. The Bruins were a total power house they finished the season with 261 goals on offense and just 177 goals on defense for a +84 goal differential. Just to show how good that actually was the next best goal differential was just +57 by the Anaheim Ducks a full 27 goals less then the Bruins. So far this season that high powered offense has not been their as they have scored just 4 goals over their first four games so thats going to have to change if they want to start winning again. This is no surprise seeing how the Bruins have only scored 4 goals all season but they have gone under the total in all four of their games.
Boston Bruins Trends
Bruins are 41-18 in their last 59 games playing on 1 days rest.
Bruins are 53-26 in their last 79 vs. Eastern Conference.
I like the Boston Bruins over the Red Wings in this one the Bruins are still a top team and it’s hard to keep them down so I see kind of a bounce back game for the Bruins here. I also like the under in this one as both teams play a defensive style of hockey in general but they’re also not exactly lighting it up right now.
