After a disappointing loss in Newark on Tuesday, the Red Wings will look to bounce back tonight when the Devils come to Hockeytown.
Deadline acquisition David Legwand debuted with the Red Wings on Thursday, playing on a line with Franzen and Gustav Nyquist. He posted two shots and a minus-2 rating. The Red Wings held a pair of leads on a night when they retired the jersey of longtime defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom, but ultimately lost to the Colorado Avalanche 3-2 in overtime. It was the ninth time in the past eleven home games that the Wings have earned at least one point.
"I thought we did a lot of great things tonight," said goaltender Jimmy Howard, who made 22 saves. "It's important to remember that we still got a point. [It] keeps us in the race here. It doesn't matter, every single night we gotta find a way to get points."
Tonight, the Wings will look to earn two more points at The Joe.
