Tonight, The Red Wings travel a half-hour north of Anaheim for a match up with the defending Stanley Cup Champions, LA Kings. Detroit suffered a 4-3 shootout loss at the Honda Center last night, in a game they let get away. Detroit is 2-0-1 on the trip thus far and is three points behind the Tampa Bay Lightning for second place in the Atlantic Division. "I thought we controlled the game," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. "The puck found a way in our net a couple times. I didn't like it, but I thought our team played good and played hard. Our kids were good." Jonas Gustavsson is expected to make his first start since November 5th, since being out with a shoulder injury. Henrik Zetterberg is expected to miss his second consecutive game this season.
