The Detroit Red Wings and the Toronto Maple Leafs will both be trying to pick up a win on Wednesday when they battle at Air Canada Centre.

ABOUT THE RED WINGS (4-2-0): Gustav Nyquist has landed on the scoresheet in just one of the first six games but registered a season-high six shots to match Green in the loss to the Lightning. While Anthony Mantha, captain Henrik Zetterberg and rookie Martin Frk have scored three goals apiece, Detroit still is looking for the first tallies from Tomas Tatar (13 shots) and Darren Helm. Danny DeKeyser (lower body) has missed three consecutive games and is expected to be out at least another week, but fellow defenseman Niklas Kronwall has posted a plus-3 rating in three games after missing three with a groin injury.

ABOUT THE MAPLE LEAFS (5-1-0): Toronto showed it can win without receiving a big performance from reigning Calder Trophy winner Auston Matthews, as the 20-year-old center was held to one shot and no points on Tuesday. Rielly has notched five assists, pulling within one of 100 in his career, to lead the team in that category and Matthews has collected a club-best eight points while Nazem Kadri netted his third goal of the season against Washington. Andersen has played in all six games, but backup Curtis McElhinney is expected to see his first action of the season Wednesday after going 6-7-0 with a .914 save percentage with the Maple Leafs in 2016-17.

Oddsmakers opened the Red Wings as -110-moneyline favorites versus the Maple Leafs, while the game’s total opened at 5.5.

The Toronto Maple Leafs hope to avoid a letdown just 24 hours after a confidence-building road victory when they host the improving Detroit Red Wings in an Atlantic Division tussle on Wednesday. Veteran forward Patrick Marleau, who has recorded three goals and five points with his new team, is slated to play the 1,500th game of his career as Toronto completes its first back-to-back set of the campaign.

The Maple Leafs posted their first shutout of the season on Tuesday, topping Washington 2-0 as Frederik Andersen turned aside 30 shots and defenseman Morgan Rielly notched a pair of assists for the league’s top-scoring team. The Red Wings suffered their first home defeat of the campaign on Monday as they went 0-for-6 on the power play, dropping to 4-for-24 on the season, and gave up a short-handed goal in a 3-2 loss to Tampa Bay. “I thought we were the better team 5-on-5,” Detroit coach Jeff Blashill told reporters. “Our power play had looks, for sure, but we didn’t score and we gave up a shorty. That’s a hard combination. There were a lot of things process-wise we were really good at, but we certainly didn’t get the result we wanted.” Defenseman Mike Green continues to lead the Red Wings with nine points after scoring his first goal in Monday’s setback.

The Maple Leafs were a 2-0 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Capitals. That made winners of bettors who got Toronto at +111 on the moneyline, while the total score (2) was good news for UNDER bettors.

In their last action, Detroit was a 3-2 loser at home against the Lightning. Bettors on Tampa Bay at -125 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
