The St. Louis Blues and the Detroit Red Wings will both be gunning for a victory on Saturday when they meet at Little Caesars Arena.

ABOUT THE BLUES (19-8-2): Jake Allen carried just an .883 save percentage in his previous 10 games before turning aside all 29 shots he faced in a 3-0 win versus Dallas. The 27-year-old New Brunswick native could see double duty this weekend after the team placed backup Carton Hutton (lower body) on injured reserve Friday. Allen owns a 1-0-3 career mark against Detroit, but suffered a hard-luck 2-1 shootout loss last season despite turning aside 26 of 27 shots.

ABOUT THE RED WINGS (11-12-5): Detroit recalled a familiar name on Friday as Tyler Bertuzzi was summoned from Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League. The nephew of former Red Wing Todd Bertuzzi, the younger forward has scored five goals and set up four others in 12 games with the Griffins in 2017-18 after being selected as the Most Valuable Player of last season’s AHL playoffs. The 22-year-old is expected to make his season debut in place of David Booth, who is nursing an undisclosed injury.

Oddsmakers opened the Blues as -149-moneyline favorites versus the Red Wings, while the game’s total opened at 5.5.

Brayden Schenn has been hot and cold since the start of November, and the 26-year-old appears to be heating up again. Schenn has scored four goals in the last two contests for the St. Louis Blues, who bid to extend their winning streak to three games on Saturday afternoon against the Detroit Red Wings at Little Caesars Arena.

Schenn recorded four-point performances to bookend an eight-game point streak before failing to dent the scoresheet in five straight contests prior to extending his recent offensive outburst with a power-play goal in a 3-0 win over Dallas on Thursday. While Schenn has been streaky for the Blues, he has been consistent versus the Red Wings with 12 points (six goals, six assists) in 14 career encounters. Detroit snapped a seven-game skid with a 5-1 rout of Winnipeg, giving coach Jeff Blashill reason to believe that a turnaround could be in the team’s future. “It’s funny how a week in this league or two weeks can change a story,” Blashill said. “Two weeks ago I think a lot of people felt like we were in a great spot, and then two weeks later we’re not. Let’s change that story two weeks from now.”

The Red Wings were a 5-1 winner in their most recent outing at home against the Jets. That made winners of bettors who got Detroit at +123 on the moneyline, while the total score (6) was good news for OVER bettors.

St. Louis won its last outing, a 3-0 result against the Stars on December 07. Bettors who backed the Blues at -157 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (3) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.
