The Wings finished strong Wednesday night, netting three goals in the third to put away the Capitals 4-2 and look to win their second in a row tonight against the Los Angeles Kings. Detroit has won six of their past eight regular-season meetings against the Kings dating to 2011-12, and goaltender Jimmy Howard is a big reason why. Howard went 6-2-0 with a 1.88 goals-against average and .941 save percentage. The Red wings will be again without forward Johan Franzen (pulled groin) who has practiced for three straight days. He plans to return Sunday at the Buffalo Sabres. Regardless, Detroit seeks to extend their regular-season dominance over L.A.
