PREDATORS (8-4-2) at RED WINGS (4-10-1)
7:30 p.m. ET; ESPN+, FS-D+, FS-TN, NHL.TV
The Detroit Red Wings will try to win their second game since Oct. 10 when they face the Nashville Predators at Little Caesars Arena on Monday.
The Red Wings are 1-9-1 in their past 11 games and have been outscored 46-19, including 11-3 in losses to the Carolina Hurricanes and Florida Panthers. They will also be without defensemen Mike Green (illness) and Trevor Daley (lower body).
Daley left the loss to the Panthers on Saturday early in the third period and Green is out for a second straight game. Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said he doesn't believe Green's illness is related to the virus that limited him to 43 games last season.
Nashville is winless in two games (0-1-1) after a four-game winning streak. They have outscored their opponents 22-11 in that stretch with each loss by one goal.
Players to watch
Predators goalie Pekka Rinne is 7-0-2 with a 2.19 goals-against average, .920 save percentage and two shutouts in nine games. He did not play in Nashville's 5-3 loss to Detroit on Oct. 5.
Red Wings forward Anthony Mantha has scored a team-high nine goals. He will be moving back to the top line alongside Dylan Larkin and Tyler Bertuzzi.
They said it
"I don't think there's any one thing that has been a problem over both of these losses. We didn't play well in the third period (against the Calgary Flames on Oct. 31), but the last game was just a close-checking game where we got behind by two goals and didn't take enough advantage of the chances we had." -- Predators coach Peter Laviolette on losses to the Flames and New York Rangers.
"It is tough to keep from being frustrated at a time like this, but frustration is the No. 1 wasted human emotion. It does no good to anybody or anything, so you have to find a way to learn from it. We've got a game tonight, and if we win, we're going to come into the locker room feeling good about ourselves again." -- Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill
