Fans in the United States will be able to watch the Detroit Red Wings aim for their 14th consecutive win Saturday afternoon at Joe Louis Arena while facing off with their Central Division rival the Chicago Blackhawks on both NBCsports.com and NHL.com.
The 12:30 p.m. ET game is being featured as NBC's Game of the Week. The Blackhawks lead the Central Division with 57 points, but the Red Wings could leap them in the standings via a tiebreaker if they win in regulation.
Detroit is 16-2-1 this season at home and hasn't lost at The Joe since Nov. 3 against Calgary.
It's a little different but it feels amazing. A new chapter in my life and I'm excited. It's been amazing. Better than I expected. The weather is great, the place is just amazing. I can't say enough good things about it. I'm glad to get the season going.
