Detroit does have a chance to bring home a win in this game. The Red Wings had a so-so preseason, but are a team that at least showed up defensively in the past and are bringing in a good goalie that has been tested in the past and is familiar with the play of the Lightning and the lack of a strong offensive showing will help the Red Wings in getting the win here. Final Score Prediction, Detroit Red Wings win 4-2.
