The Red Wings are coming off another impressive outing as they defeated the New York Rangers 3-2. Detroit concluded their four-game homestand with a 3-1 record and will be on he road tonight as they take on the Hurricanes. This will be the first match up between the two teams, but last season Detroit took two of three from the Canes. Look for Henrik Zetterberg to have a big game, as he had five points (1 goal, 4 assists) in his two games against the Hurricanes last year.
Jimmy Howard played great last night, stopping 32 pucks and will likely get a break tonight on the ladder half of the back-to-back, making room for Petr Mrazek's third start between the pipes this season. The Red Wings are 8-2 in their past 10 games.
