7 p.m. ET; FS-D, CBC, NHL.TV
The Toronto Maple Leafs will try to end a three-game losing streak when they visit the Detroit Red Wings at Little Caesars Arena on Saturday.
The Maple Leafs have been outscored 16-10 in their past three games (0-2-1) including a 7-3 home loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday.
The Red Wings' top line of Anthony Mantha, Tyler Bertuzzi and Dylan Larkin will look to stay hot; they have 20 points (10 goals, 10 assists) in four games this season.
Players to watch
Maple Leafs forward Auston Matthews has seven points (six goals, one assist) in five games. He and Mantha are tied for second in the League in goals trailing James Neal of the Edmonton Oilers, who has seven.
Red Wings defenseman Danny DeKeyser has four assists in four games this season.
They said it
"They've got a lot of speed on that line and they've also got a lot of grit, so they can handle about every situation offensively and defensively. They will try to get in front of our net and try to get a bounce, but they can all shoot as well, so we have to stay focused when they are out there." -- Maple Leafs forward Mitchell Marner on facing Detroit's top line
"Discipline is going to huge tonight. I watched the replay of the first period of Toronto and Tampa Bay, and I don't want to face either one of those power plays. You can't put Toronto out there over and over, because they will eventually get into the zone and score." -- Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill on Toronto's power play.
