Bet On Sharks Red Wings – Sharks Look To Bite In To Red Wings Record Home Run

The Detroit Red Wings climbed to the top of the Western conference standings by setting an NHL record with 21 straight home wins. Their next home game will be a true test of just how far the team has come over that run. The Red Wings have been eliminated from the postseason in each of the past two years by the San Jose Sharks, and while neither team will be eliminated after these teams meet again for a matinee game this Sunday, it could very well be a preview of what is to come once the playoffs get underway.

Detroit’s record run increased the gap between them and the Sharks to 12 points in the West standings, although both teams are in good position within their own divisions. San Jose is in the middle of a season-high nine game road trip, and there is really no debating that this will be their toughest stop.

After a tough shutout loss in St. Louis to open their trip, the Sharks bounced back with a 5-3 win over the Washington Capitals before heading to Tampa Bay and Florida for back-to-back games Thursday and Friday. San Jose has performed well away from home this season, but they will need to show more of a killer instinct overall. Despite ranking in the top-10 in the NHL in goals scored, goals allowed, and powerplay percentage, the Sharks have just 68 points, fifth-most in the west.

Like most things that the Red Wings do, from spectacular drafting all the way to the Stanley Cup rings, it seems like their record home run has flown a little too low under the radar. Despite having to role with No. 3 goalie Joey MacDonald, Detroit made it to 21 straight home wins to set the NHL record, and did so in an age of competitive parity where a streak that long is beyond reason. Howard could be back in goal for the Red Wings on Sunday, and with the league’s most complete team in front of him he should continue to put up solid numbers for the sports betting favorites.

Whether it is the magic hands of Pavel Datsyuk, the pure size of Johan Franzen, or the incredible poise of captain Nicklas Lidstrom, this Red Wings’ team is the definition of complete. The sports bet odds say that this team will have to start losing at home sooner or later, but with the Sharks struggling against fatigue on this extended road trip, it is unlikely that they will be the team to put an end to it. Detroit will be eager to prove itself after consecutive playoff exits at the hands of San Jose, and Sunday’s game should be a good start.
