The surging Wings made it seven in a row on Friday by scoring three times in the first period and cruising to a 4-1 victory in Buffalo. The Avs are 4-3-0 as they enter the finale of an eight-game homestand after a 3-2 shootout victory against St. Louis on Friday.

The Wings-Avs contest is one of two that gets under way at 8 p.m. ET.
