To begin the 2021-22 season, the Detroit Red Wings were surprising profit-takers with the NHL betting odds. For the past several seasons, Detroit has been going through a slow and frustrating rebuild. But the good start to this year created false hope for a potential playoff berth. Since reality set in the Red Wings were exposed as thin. Detroit will be out of postseason action for the sixth consecutive season. Counter to that is a New York Rangers team enjoying a breakthrough season. New York is playoff-bound after missing the 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs. First year Ranger head coach Gerard Gallant has engineered one of the best defensive teams in the NHL. New York’s win percentage has improved from .536 last season to .669 this year.
The Detroit Red Wings will host the New York Rangers at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan. This game will take place on Wednesday, March 30, 2022, at 7:30 p.m. ET, with television coverage on TNT.
