KINGS (13-18-3) at RED WINGS (9-22-3)
7 p.m. ET; ESPN+, FS-D, FS-W, NHL.TV
The Detroit Red Wings will try to win for the third straight time when they play the Los Angeles Kings at Little Caesars Arena on Sunday.
After ending an 0-10-2 skid with a 5-2 win against the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday, Detroit defeated the Montreal Canadiens 2-1 on Saturday behind 42 saves from Jonathan Bernier.
The Kings have gotten points in three straight games (2-0-1) after a 5-4 shootout loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday. The Kings scored twice in the final five minutes of regulation to tie the game, but Anze Kopitar missed a third-period penalty shot and again in the shootout.
Players to watch
Kings forward Tyler Toffoli has six points (two goals, four assists) in a three-game multi-point streak, moving him to third on the team in scoring with 19 points (eight goals, 11 assists) in 33 games.
Red Wings forward Robby Fabbri, playing on the first line, has five points (three goals, two assists) in his past four games.
They said it
"It had a little bit of everything -- good start. We got into a bit of penalty trouble. They claw back as we expected. They're a very scrappy, competitive team. They don't go away, nor do we. We talked about that between periods. 'We got to respond here a little bit and push,' and I thought we did that late in the third." -- Kings coach Todd McLellan after the Pittsburgh loss
"Obviously we went through an extremely difficult stretch there, but I find that the last four or five games we played really well. We just had some bad bounces that ended up in the net. But the last two games, we've had luck, and sometimes that's what it takes to get things going." -- Red Wings goalie Jonathan Bernier

Neither team skated Sunday morning after playing Saturday night.
Kopitar, who needs one point to tie Wayne Gretzky (918) for fourth on the Kings career list, has failed to register a point in eight of his past nine games. … A Detroit win would match their longest winning streak of the season, set in the last three games before the 12-game winless streak.
