The Red Wings are coming off another come-from-behind win as they were able to defeat the Ottawa Senators Saturday night in overtime. Gustav Nyquist scored the game winner Saturday and also had three assists in Detroit's 6-3 victory last week against Buffalo. The Boston Bruins and Detroit Red Wings have split their prior two meetings, with Detroit winning 2-1 on the first game of the year and Boston winning 3-2 in a shootout Oct. 22. Both games were played in Detroit. Gustav Nyquist had two goals in the two games.
Jimmy Howard returned to the lineup in a 3-2 overtime win against the Ottawa Senators on Saturday after an injury absence, making 31 saves. Howie is expected to make his second consecutive start tonight in an Atlantic Division showdown at the Garden.
