Detroit has won four games in a row and six of its past seven following a 6-4 win against the Buffalo Sabres Sunday, in a game where Tom McCullom recorded his first career victory. “Took a lot of different exits, about 17 different detours and I think it went the wrong way 10 times too,” McCollum said. “Fortunately I found my way on the right path and the team played fantastic in front of me, which really made it a lot easier.” The Red Wings have scored 17 goals during their winning streak, led by Henrik Zetterberg, who had a hat trick against the Sabres and leads Detroit with 41 points this season.
Tonight, Detroit will face a struggling Minnesota team that is (3-6-1) in their last 10 games following a 3-1 loss last night against the Blue Jackets. The Minnesota Wild and Detroit Red Wings each won on home ice last season. The Red Wings won 4-3 at Joe Louis Arena on Mar. 23. Detroit forward Gustav Nyquist had three goals in the two games. The Wild are 4-3-0 in their past seven games in Detroit. Petr Mrazek is expected to be back between the pipes tonight for the Red Wings.
