After finishing up 2019 on a high note with a 2-0 win over the San Jose Sharks, the Red Wings are back to their losing ways in 2020 with a 4-1 loss against the Dallas Stars and a 4-2 loss against the Chicago Blackhawks. Detroit has remarkably won both of its games against the Canadiens, defeating Montreal 4-2 as a +170 road underdog back in October and 2-1 as a +200 road underdog in December. The Red Wings are 8-30-3 overall and 2-16-2 on the road against all other teams this season, but against Montreal the Wings are 2-0 with two regulation wins.

The Red Wings are 2-3 over their last five home games since going 0-6 in their previous six games in Detroit per the OddsShark NHL Database.

Montreal wrapped up a three-game homestand on Monday night with a 3-2 loss to the Winnipeg Jets, dropping to 18-18-7 on the season and 0-5-1 over its last six games. This is the second time this season that a long losing streak has erased a solid run of games preceding it; Montreal went 7-1-1 through mid November only to go 0-5-3 over its next eight games. The Canadiens broke out of that slump with a 7-3 run, only to find themselves back in another one now. Montreal is 10-8-3 on the road this season.

Tuesday night’s total is set at six goals at sports betting sites. The OVER is 5-1 in Montreal’s last six road games and in Detroit’s last six home games.

Detroit took advantage of a slumping Sharks team to earn a win at home last week. The Red Wings have another legitimate shot at a win on Tuesday night, and the home fans will be rooting for them to convert on it.
