Jonathan Bernier turned aside 38 of the 39 shots he faced on Saturday night as the Red Wings earned a 2-1 upset win over the Florida Panthers. Detroit has earned points in five of its 10 home games this season with a 3-5-2 record and is 3-4-1 over its last eight games since going 0-6-2 over its previous eight games. Bernier has provided a nice spark since returning from injury with a 4-2-0 record this season to go along with a respectable 2.74 goals-against average and a .910 save percentage.

The Red Wings are 6-3 in their last nine home games against the Predators per the OddsShark NHL Database.

Since opening the season with a 2-0-0 record after picking up back-to-back wins over the Columbus Blue Jackets, Nashville is just 5-10 over its last 15 games. The Predators have a -22 goal differential over that 15-game stretch and on the season rank 29th in goals for (with 2.29 per game) and 27th in goals against (with 3.35 per game). The Predators picked up a 4-2 win over the Blue Jackets on Saturday; they are 3-1 against Columbus and 4-9 against all other teams this season.

Tuesday night’s total is set at 5.5 goals at online betting sites. The OVER is 5-1 in Nashville’s last six road games against the Red Wings.

With Detroit and Nashville both sitting in the bottom five league-wide in goals scored and goals against, this series isn’t exactly a battle of titans; but it is one in which the Red Wings have a shot at earning points. The Red Wings continue their week after Tuesday night’s game with another game against Nashville on Thursday and then back-to-back road games against the Blackhawks in Chicago on Saturday and Sunday.
