Slow night in the NHL with just 3 games on tap so we have nothing big for tonight. Therefor we turn our attention over to the Boston Bruins vs Detroit Red Wings match-up where we have a small free NHL pick of the day.
Boston Bruins vs Detroit Red Wings Free NHL Pick (10/15/14)
It’s been a tough start to the season for the Bruins being 1-3 and it’s not just one position that’s at fault. All three: offense, defense and goaltending are all to blame. The good news though is David Krejci is back and will be relied on tonight as he was the leading scorer last season. Krejci returned last game and played 19 minutes, look for him to play around 24-ish minutes tonight.
Of Boston’s 3 losses, one came in the final second vs Colorado where Danny Briere was left all alone in front of the net. A complete break down by the defense which doesn’t happen to often in Boston. Look for the Bruins to fix that tonight.
As for Detroit not taking anything away from them but they are a young team with a lot of young stars in the making but they are not anywhere ready to have a competitive season in my opinion. Although being in the Eastern Conference now, they do have a better chance. Maybe if Pavel Datsyuk wasn’t injured to start a season – again – I would consider Detroit to win tonight, but he as we all know is out, again.
This play comes down to me believing that Boston will not open the season 1-4. There is just no way this experienced well rounded team is going to be 1-4 after tonight. Boston has played 4 games already and should have the rust shaken off as where Detroit ha sonly played 2 games and may need a few more games to shake the rust off.
I expect a dominating performance from Boston although it may not be as easy as most think v.s. a well coached Mike Babcock team. Therefor we are keeping this pick small as so should you.
Boston Bruins -120 ($120 to win $100)
