Detroit Red Wings

The Detroit Red Wings have struggled all season long. While they have shown slight promises on certain games, their overall campaign has been subpar, to say the least. Interestingly, however, Detroit has put up some of its outstanding performances against an unlikely victim – the Carolina Hurricanes. The Red Wings have won four of their seven meetings against the Hurricanes this season, a feat that could be a factor in their faceoff at the PNC Arena on Thursday. Sure, the Red Wings are entering the rink as heavy underdogs. But their hosts could not deny their head-to-head record may somehow affect the way they match up when the puck is dropped.  

Players to watch: F. Hronek D (G 2 A 21 PTS 23), D. Larkin C (G 9 A 14 PTS 23),  A. Erne LW (G 11 A 8 PTS 19).

Carolina Hurricanes

Securing a playoff spot is not the ultimate goal for the Hurricanes. The team knows that there is no reason for them to loosen up their intensity on ice, especially with other teams exhibiting grit in the wrapping stages of the regular season. The manner and approach that they have in the homestretch will have significant implications on how they are going to fare with the rest of the contenders in the league. And being a top-two team overall in the NHL, Carolina is aware that there is a huge target on its back. Their last seven regular-season games could also be the best time for them to test some potential playoff schemes, especially that they will be at home in five games of the last stretch. 

Players to watch: S. Aho RW (G 21 A 28 PTS 49), D. Hamilton D (G 8 A 31 PTS 39), V. Trocheck C (G 17 A 22 PTS 39).
