The Detroit Red Wings are putting together some decent performances lately to where they're worth a look here, especially with how they jumped on the Blackhawks last night. With that said, I need to see a little more before I start taking the Red Wings seriously. The Chicago Blackhawks are a team we've cashed some nice tickets on this season and a loss here and there doesn't shake my confidence. I'll back the Blackhawks for a bounce back victory.
