Red Wings team scope

The Detroit Red Wings ended a three-game losing streak (0-3-0) with a 5-4 shootout win against the Ottawa Senators on Monday in the first game of their back-to-back series against the Senators. It was an NHL-high 28th time the Red Wings have played beyond regulation time this season. They are 7-12 in overtime and 9-0 in shootouts. This will be the Red Wings' last road game of the season before finishing with the final games at the Joe Louis Arena, against the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday and the New Jersey Devils on Sunday. Jimmy Howard likely will start in goal and play his 400th NHL game; Petr Mrazek made 41 saves Monday.

 

Senators team scope

Forward Clarke MacArthur will be in the lineup for the Ottawa Senators for the first time since Oct. 14, 2015 when they try to move back into second in the Atlantic Division. The Senators need a win and losses by the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins. Ottawa is third, one point behind the Maple Leafs, and are tied with the Bruins but have one game in hand. The Senators have lost five games in a row (0-3-2) and are 2-5-4 in their past 11. Ottawa and Boston each is four points ahead of the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Senators trailed 4-2 in the third period against the Red Wings on Monday and rallied to get a point in the 5-4 shootout loss. "This was a huge comeback for us," forward Kyle Turris said Monday. "Now we've got a chance to play those guys again [Tuesday] and really start to build some momentum." Forward Bobby Ryan will not play after sustaining an upper-body injury against the Red Wings. Ryan Dzingel will replace him in the lineup.
