Buffalo and Detroit are the two bottom-dwellers in the Atlantic Division, but they feel like two teams going in different directions at this late juncture of the season.

The wins have been a little hard to come by with a 3-8-2 record over the last month, but chemistry is being found between players like Jack Eichel (20-29-49), Evander Kane (25-14-39)and Ryan O’Reilly (17-30-47) and that is something to build on for next year.

They were finally rewarded with a win last time out, taking down the Ducks 2-1 in a shootout that went ten rounds.

In Detroit, it is all but certain that the Red Wings 25 year playoff streak is about to come to an end. But they have won two straight -over the two worst teams in the league. They beat Arizona 5-4 in a shootout on Thursday and followed it up with a 5-1 win over the Avalanche on Saturday.

The wins broke a 1-5-1 sequence to start the month. This game is the second which sees them playing three games in four nights.

The veterans have been leading in March as Henrik Zetterberg has 1-10-11 in nine games and Tomas Tatar has 6-4-10.

Monday night games are hard for teams to get up for in general, and that’s likely to be the case for two teams with little to play for at this time of the year. So if anything the edge has to go to the home team who can rely on the crowd for some energy.

Bovada has the Red Wings favorites at 150-moneyline with the total sitting at 5 at MyBookie.

NHL Puckline odds at BetOnline the Red Wings were favored by -1½ (+205)
