The Red Wings returns home to Joe Louis Arena following a three game, week long trip to Western Canada that proved to be very fruitful as they earned 5 of the 6 possible points. Scoring goals in two separate games at the 0.3 second mark against Edmonton in the third and Vancouver in overtime earned the Wings three of those 5 points.
Pittsburgh won the first meeting of these two teams with a 2-1 SO win over Jimmy Howard on January 31. This is the 17th meeting between the two teams since the start of the 2008 Stanley Cup Finals. The record for Detroit in those games is 8-6-2.
Puck drops at 7:00 pm ET and the game will air on Versus and TSN. Comment below and as always, GO WINGS!
