Red Wings are a Poor Bet With No Rest

Dylan Larkin Detroit Red Wings

The Detroit Red Wings are coming off a solid homestand but will immediately have to hit the road when they travel to Brooklyn to tangle with the New York Islanders in Monday night’s slate of NHL action. The Red Wings, who are fresh off a 4-0-1 showing at Joe Louis Arena, are far from a reliable play in the second half of back-to-back games. Detroit is a measly 0-5 in their last five when playing without a day of rest.

Shark Bites
  • The Islanders are 1-4 in their last 5 vs. the Eastern Conference.
  • The Islanders are 5-2 in their last 7 home games.
  • The Red Wings are 7-3 in their last 10 road games.

When the Wings and Isles collide in the Big Apple, high-scoring affairs are the norm. The OVER has paid out in six of the last seven meetings between the clubs. At the time of writing, the line and total for the game were off the board.

One player to watch out for in tonight’s contest is Islanders’ captain John Tavares. Tavares has collected six goals and eight assists over his last nine games.

The Wings are looking to complete a sweep of the season series in the wake of a 5-1 home victory over New York on February 6.
