7 p.m. ET; ESPN+, FS-D, FS-CR, NHL.TV
Anthony Mantha will not play for the Detroit Red Wings when they host the Carolina Hurricanes at Little Caesars Arena on Sunday.
The forward sustained a lower-body injury in the first period of a 5-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils on Saturday and is expected to miss at least a week. The Red Wings allowed four third-period goals and are winless in their past five games (0-3-2) since a three-game winning streak.
Goalie James Reimer is expected to start for the Hurricanes, who defeated the Florida Panthers 4-2 on Saturday to win for the fifth time in six games.
Players to watch
Red Wings rookie forward Filip Zadina was recalled from Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League to replace Mantha in the lineup. Zadina, the No. 6 pick in the 2018 NHL Draft, has 13 points (seven goals, six assists) in 19 AHL games this season.
Hurricanes forward Andrei Svechnikov has 11 points (five goals, six assists) in a seven-game point streak and leads the team in scoring with 26 points (11 goals, 15 assists).

"I thought it was as good a game [as we've played] start to finish, even though we got down. We were playing fine. I just love the fact it didn't change one bit what we were doing." -- Hurricanes coach Rod Brind'Amour on Carolina's comeback win against Florida on Saturday
"We've been really porous defensively the last couple of games and that's not good enough. The biggest thing I made clear for our group for [Sunday] and the long-term future of this team is that we have to play hockey the right way." -- Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill
