Red Wings vs. Coyotes Prediction

I’m on the Red Wings here. I get why you could make a case for the Coyotes as home underdogs, as that’s where they’ve played their best hockey, but at a certain point, motivation has to come into play and the Red Wings are in the hunt for a playoff spot. Detroit can’t afford to drop winnable spots like these if they’re going to make that happen and the Red Wings actually have a winning record on the road. I’ll side with the Red Wings at home here.
