This is the second of three between the Carolina Hurricanes and the Detroit Red Wings. The teams met Oct. 4, a 3-2 overtime win by the Red Wings in which Stephen Weiss scored the game-winner.
The Wings enter the game having not won since Nov. 2, going 0-2-5 since then. At Joe Louis Arena, their winless skid is eight games, the team's longest since 1991.
"It's just a frustrating time for us right now. It doesn't seem like anything's going our way out there, but you've got to go out there and work for your breaks," goalie Jimmy Howard said after a 2-0 loss to the Nashville Predators on Tuesday. Tonight, the Wings will look to get back on track against Carolina.
