Free NHL Pick For Tonight Mar 21: Red Wings vs. Rangers
Detroit Red Wings (2.20) vs. New York Rangers (1.71); Total 5
7:35 PM ET starting time for this game.
Great matchup between two good teams in the Red Wings and Rangers. The big story surrounding this game is the Red Wings goalie situation. Howard is out again (groin) and Conklin was put on waivers but cleared and it will be Ty Conkling that gets the start tonight for Detroit. Conklin has not played much this year and he has not been very good either going 3-5 with 3.40 GAA and save % of just .878. This is not good news for the Red Wings as they have been struggling and could actually lose a top 4 spot (and home ice) come the playoffs. The Rangers have not been great lately either but they did end a 2 game losing streak with a 4-2 win over the Devils. It looks as though the Red Wings will be without Lidstrom again as he is listed as doubtful. Datsyuk is back and playing for Detroit which should help their sluggish offence. Can Detroit end a 5 game losing streak with a win in New York tonight?

Red Wings vs Rangers Prediction:
I do like the Rangers to win this game but they are a pretty big favorite (1.71) and they haven’t exactly been playing great hockey themselves. What I do like in this game is the OVER. Currently the total for this game is 5 goals (1.83 for the over) at Bodog Sportsbook. The Detroit defence has been a mess the past 10 games and losing Howard again doesn’t help plus it looks as though Lidstrom won’t play either. And the Rangers have been giving up a lot more goals recently than what we have been use to seeing from them. The Rangers have allowed 3 or more goals in 8 of their last 10 games. The Red Wings have allowed 3 or more goals in 7 straight games. Asking for more than 5 goals in this game is not asking a lot. I’ll take the OVER 5 goals for 1.83 at Bodog Sportsbook.
