Wings are the dog in this bout eh?? That I can go in on. They got Zetti back now and Gus the monster. I think they're at the start of a hot streak. Detroit and under 5.5

Why start a hot streak?? They are on a streak...  Detroit's road winning streak; they are 6-0-3 on the road. By the way: Jonas Gustavsson maynot play, he skipped practice on sunday after due to a sore groin. Probable to start is Petr Mrazek.

Taking the under 5

You're right about Detroit's goalie situation. That Mrazek is a little bit scary though.Sv% .900  and only 1 win in 4 tries.I'd feel a lot better if Gus was there but I still feel detroit knows what they're doing and can grind this one out. Not too many teams beat detroit twice in a row (hoping not quoting)  The good new is that Preds are no better in their net.

I've also read Howard is close maybe I'm going to wait and see who they suit up. Thanks BB for the heads up :) BOLTA

How can Det be listed as dog, guess because of the goalie issue or  is there man that??. Read that Zetterberg hasn't participated in practice but will play anyway.

Zetterberg says hes good to go.

Zetterberg (groin) said he will play Monday against the Predators, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

Spin: Referring to his absence from Sunday's skate as simply a "maintenance day," Zetterberg left no about about his status for Monday. GM Ken Holland said earlier in the day that Zetterberg has a tender groin, but it's evidently not something that will cost him time.

Not sure why/how the wings are the dog in this bout, but I can't find anything that sways me from a real solid detroit pick. You're right though with Zetti and Howard in I would've thought the line would've moved a lot more than it has.

Babcock confirmed that Howard will start tonight, what change of events.
