After a tough 1-0 loss to St. Louis on Sunday, Detroit looks to get back on track Thursday night when they host the San Jose Sharks, who have had their share of struggles on the road.
"You always want to play well at home," center Valtteri Filppula told the team's official website. "Definitely would be a good start to get a home win and then go on the road and hopefully get some confidence."
The Red Wings begin a four-game trip Friday against Chicago before finishing up with three of their last four at home.
"It's been a tough month," defenseman Niklas Kronwall said. "Hopefully we can kind of reset everything and come back more energized because we're coming down to the wire here and it's going to be so tight all the way through."
