Randy’s Free Pick
I’m not excited to lay juice with the Detroit Red Wings, but they are the better team here and if they’re going to keep making strides in the right direction these are games they need to win. The Arizona Coyotes are arguably the worst team in the league, and playing at home doesn’t help them. Price isn’t ideal for a hit or miss Red Wings side, but it beats the alternative.
