NHL News and Predictions

Colorado Avalanche vs. Detroit Red Wings (7:30 PM ET)

Line: Colorado Avalanche at Detroit Red Wings – view all NHL lines

The Detroit Red Wings extended their winning streak to three games with a convincing 3-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night. Danny DeKeyser and Henrik Zetterberg scored early in the first and third periods to help the Red Wings beat Ottawa and spoil Dion Phaneuf’s debut with his new team.

The Red Wings will look to sustain the momentum of that huge win when they take on the struggling Colorado Avalanche who are in the midst of a four-game slide. The Red Wings will fancy their chances of doing just that as they have fared extremely well against the Avalanche of late. The Red Wings have won five of their last seven meetings with the Avalanche. Detroit destroyed Colorado, 3-0, in their last encounter back in February 2015.

Writer’s Prediction

Detroit wins, 4-2.

St. Louis Blues vs. Florida Panthers (7:30 PM ET)

Best Games to Bet on: Colorado vs Detroit and St. Louis vs Florida

The Florida Panthers returned to winning ways Tuesday with an emphatic 7-4 win over the Buffalo Sabres. It was a huge bounce-back victory for the Panthers who snapped an 0-1-1 skid in which they scored just twice. The Atlantic Division-leading Panthers will look to make it back-to-back wins when they lock horns with the St. Louis Blues tonight.

St. Louis is coming off a gut-wrenching 2-1 overtime loss to the Winnipeg Jets. The Blues have been struggling for form of late, losing four of their last six games. They will take comfort in the fact, however, that they have beaten the Panthers in their last three meetings.

Writer’s Prediction

Florida edges past St. Louis, 2-1.
