  • Don’t look now but the Blues are back. They’ve won four straight games and can cap off their five-game Eastern Conference road swing with a win tonight in their final game at the Joe Louis Arena. Conversely, the Red Wings have lost four straight and been outscored 17-9 in those games.

    SHARK BITES
    • The Red Wings are 1-8 SU in their last 9 games as underdog.
    • The total has gone UNDER in 7 of the Blues' last 8 games against the Red Wings.
    • Red Wings goalies have produced a combined save percentage of .898 this month.

    These former division rivals used to see a lot of each other before the last NHL alignment that saw the Red Wings move to the Eastern Conference but Detroit is now a much different team than when these teams competed for Central Division supremacy. Detroit is fighting to stay afloat in an awful Atlantic Division and is in serious trouble of missing the playoffs for the first time in 23 years.

    St. Louis, though, has shifted into overdrive and has been making a steady ascent in the West since Ken Hitchcock was relieved of his duties as head coach. The Blues have a +2 goal differential per game in the month of February and their netminders are leading the NHL in save percentage since they fired goalie coach Jim Corsi.

    Far be it from me to say the Blues are going to win in this spot but let’s be real here – they probably will. They’ve been one of the best teams in the league since the coaching change and Detroit has all but given up.
