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)

elliottBruins, one point ahead of Detroit for third in the Atlantic Division, have lost six of seven overall and four of five on the road. Boston forward David Krejci (undisclosed injury) is expected to play but forward Ryan Spooner (undisclosed injury) is questionable.
