Alfredsson late scratch for Red Wings

DETROIT -- Daniel Alfredsson was a late scratch Friday night for the Detroit Red Wings because of a groin injury.

The 40-year old took warm-up prior to the game against the Washington Capitals at Joe Louis Arena but was scratched as a precautionary measure. His absence left the Red Wings with 17 skaters.

"I had no idea what was going on there. I came up after warm-up and evidently he had some groin tightness and so [trainer Piet Van Zant] scratched him," coach Mike Babcock said after a 4-3 shootout loss. "Obviously, you'd like to have enough players but it worked out good, our rotation was fine. That wasn't an issue. That had nothing to do with the game."

Oilers hoping to find net, snap losing skid

EDMONTON -- The Edmonton Oilers need to end a scoring drought before snapping a losing skid.

Heading into their game against the San Jose Sharks on Friday at Rexall Place (10 p.m. ET, TSN), the Oilers have not scored at home in 182:04 of play.

They have been shut out in their past three home games and are on a four-game losing skid.

"When you look at the chances from the Dallas game, we have two wide-open nets where their goalie made a hell of a save on one and the other one we hit the crossbar," Oilers coach Dallas Eakins said. "Those are two tap-ins usually. I'm not buying into the 'we can't score' right now. We're getting some good looks at their net.

"The one thing we worked on in practice the other day was our cycle game. That's something that maybe doesn't come naturally to our group. Our group likes to attack off the rush more than anything, but we've got to establish a cycle game and spend more time in the other team's zone."
