After a late third period comeback in Winnipeg, the Red Wings look to sweep their road trip as they take on the Maple Leafs. The Wings hope to get another big game out of their captain, Henrik Zetterberg, who led the way with four assists in a 4-1 win in Toronto and then notched the game winner with 10 seconds left in overtime at the Joe in a 1-0 victory.

Jimmy Howard will be back between the pipes tonight in Toronto after backup Petr Mrazek held it down Thursday night. Detroit might also be without center Pavel Datsyuk for the third consecutive game, as he is trying to get over a nagging groin injury. Nonetheless, the Red Wings have won three of their past four games and have earned at least a point in six of their previous seven.
