Randy’s Free Pick

I’m not running to the window to lay juice with the Red Wings, but this is a game they should win at home. The San Jose Sharks still have issues on the road and their defense has been rough to say the least. If the Red Wings have any chance of chipping away in the standings and making things interesting, these are the games they need to take advantage of. Give me the home team.
