The Bruins are 4-0 in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and 7-2 in their last 9 road games. The Red Wings are 7-15 in their last 22 games following a win and 4-1 in their last 5 vs. Atlantic. The Bruins are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Detroit and 5-0 in the last 5 meetings overall.
The Bruins have had their way with the Red Wings as of late and are playing better hockey right now overall. I like the road team here.
