Has Detroit finally found its offense? After a December in which they scored two or fewer goals seven times in 14 games, the Red Wings scored five times in the win at Dallas.
The Red Wings will need all the offense they can muster as they enter what may be the toughest road stretch of the season, with games against San Jose, the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks, who have a combined six home regulation losses among them. The Red Wings have the best road record in the Eastern Conference (13-4-3).
"It's a big challenge, but at the same time a good opportunity for us to get things going," defensemen Niklas Kronwall said Wednesday. "We didn't play great in Dallas but took advantage of our opportunities. Goaltending was great for us. We have to build on that."
