Pretty entertaining game so far,  2-1 Habs with 6 minutes to go in the first. After watching for a few minutes it dawned on me that these teams are now in the wings division and I have been smiling ever since.

What do u guys think o/u 99.5 pts for Detroit?

I feel like the less travel and easier eastern conference will push them over that number. I am thinking of throwing some action on it. They are also 14-1 to get to the cup... I see some value there.

Instead, 3 of the bottom 4 teams in ESPN's power rankings--Tampa, Florida, Buffalo. 

I would take the over, but I wouldn't put too much on it. Some other ESPN computer prediction machine said they would have 88 points, IIRC, in an article I read yesterday. That seems really low.

Trouba has had a decent game so far. 1st period he looked great, getting a few quality shots and drawing a penalty. 2nd period he has looked like it's moving a little fast for him, but still is playing well.

Edit: Just as I post this, Trouba gets his first career point with an assist on the Frolik goal.
