Detroit Red Wings

The Red Wings dropped their third straight game as the Chicago Blackhawks pummeled their defense on Wednesday, 8-5. It was a bitter pill to swallow especially with the loss happening at home. If there is one thing that Detroit has to learn from the latest defeat, it is the avoidance of slow starts. The team fell to a 4-0 deficit early in the game. And while they were able to mount a surge, the Blackhawks shifted to a higher gear to complete the wild victory. Defense overall has been a problem for the Red Wings in their last couple of games. In fact, the team allowed 17 goals in their last three games alone. A lackluster defense will equate to a disaster when they visit Pittsburgh on Friday. Fans can expect Detroit to come out with a better effort this time. 

Players to watch: D. Larkin C (G 20, A 18, PTS 38), T. Bertuzzi LW (G 20, A 18, PTS 38), L. Raymond RW (G 11, A 23, PTS 34).

Pittsburgh Penguins

The mission remains the same for the Penguins. Despite absorbing a shocking defeat on Wednesday, the confidence remains high for PIttsburgh. The team is eager to get back to the winning track after having their previous six-game winning streak snapped by Seattle. Pittsburgh wants to stick with the positives from the recent loss. And the most evident of them is that no team has to be taken lightly in the NHL. Riding a seven-game point streak, the PIttsburgh vows to be locked as they face the dangerous Detroit Red Wings squad.

Players to watch: J. Guentzel LW (G 21, A 19, PTS 40), K. Letang D (G 5, A 32, PTS 37), S. Crosby C (G 11, A 23, PTS 34).
