Red Wings surrendered 49 goals in 14 March games, a goals-against average of 3.49. Detroit has scored a power-play goal in a season-high six consecutive games and are 9-for-20 (45 per cent) over that span. Detroit goalie Petr Mrazek has been pulled from four of his last five starts.

Pick: The Red Wings (-110)

Boston Bruins (-225) at St. Louis Blues (+185)

Boston forward David Krejci (undisclosed injury) is expected to play but forward Ryan Spooner (undisclosed injury) is questionable.
