Detroit is clinging to a berth in the Stanley Cup Playoffs while trying to tread water through a spate of injuries that never seems to end.
Detroit comes to L.A. off a 4-1 road loss to the San Jose Sharks on Thursday, a game in which the Red Wings got back rookie defenseman Danny DeKeyser from a groin injury but didn't have top center Pavel Datsyuk (lower body). They're also missing four regulars who are on injured reserve.
One guy they've recently gotten back from injury is starting goalie Jimmy Howard, who's been up-and-down in four games since his return. Tonight, he and a depleted Detroit team will look to bounce back in Los Angeles.
