The Red Wings are 4-0 in their last 4 after scoring 2 goals or less in their previous game and are 4-0 in their last 4 when their opponent allows 2 goals or less in their previous game while the under is 4-0-3 in Red Wings last 7 after scoring 2 goals or less in their previous game. The under is 3-0-1 in Lightning last 4 when their opponent scores 2 goals or less in their previous game and is 3-0-1 in Lightning last 4 games following a win while Tampa Bay are 7-1 in their last 8 Wednesday games.
