7 p.m. ET; FS-D+, FS-CR, NHL.TV
Red Wings team scope
The Detroit Red Wings are 5-1-1 in their past seven games, and will play their third game in three days, and second in as many days at the Carolina Hurricanes. Detroit defeated Carolina 4-3 in overtime Monday in a game rescheduled from Dec. 9 because of ice issues. The game Tuesday is regularly scheduled, creating the back-to back set. The Red Wings recalled center Ben Street from Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League. Street has 29 games of NHL experience over four seasons with the Calgary Flames and Colorado Avalanche. He could replace Luke Glendening, who left the game Monday with a lower-body injury. Defenseman Daniel Renouf was assigned to Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League on Tuesday, one day after skating 13:35 in his NHL debut, a sign defenseman Niklas Kronwall (knee) could return after missing the game Monday. Center Henrik Zetterberg is one point from 900 in his NHL career.
Hurricanes team scope
The Hurricanes, thanks to a 7-0-4 run, have moved back into contention, four points behind the Boston Bruins for the second wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Eastern Conference. "It's a great point," coach Bill Peters said after the 4-3 overtime loss to the Red Wings on Monday. "To get a point out of that is huge. We need to learn from the way we played [Monday] and be better [Tuesday]." The outcome of the game Monday became secondary when goaltender Eddie Lack was stretchered off the ice after a collision with Detroit forward Andreas Athanasiou on the game-winning goal. Lack was taken to a hospital where tests revealed he had feeling in all his extremities and diagnosed with a neck strain. He later took to social media to assure his followers everything looks alright. "He's stiff and sore, as you can imagine, and he's going to get some more treatment here this evening when he comes back and gets looked at," Peters said. "I think we dodged a bullet there." Carolina recalled goaltender Alex Nedeljkovic from Florida of the ECHL on Tuesday. Defenseman Ryan Murphy left the game Monday with a lower-body injury in the third period and did not return.
