Detroit Red Wings at Edmonton Oilers

October 30, 2007

The red-hot Red Wings will have back-up Chris Osgood in net when they face the struggling Edmonton Oilers Tuesday night. 

The Oilers have actually been the dominant team over the past 10 games head-to-head, compiling a 7-3 record against the Wings. The teams last met on Oct. 8, when Detroit won 4-2 on home ice. 

Detroit (9-2-1) last played against the Canucks in Vancouver on Sunday, winning 3-2, while Edmonton (5-7-0) beat the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday, also 3-2. 

Detroit’s starting goalie, Dominik Hasek, is out one to two weeks with a sore hip. He is not expected to play on the Red Wings’ current road trip.

Edmonton is 4-1 SU in its past five home games against Detroit. 

Betting Line: The Red Wings are a 195-moneyline favorite at BookMaker. The over/under is 5½.
