The Detroit Red Wings welcome the Ottawa Senators to Joe Louis Arena tonight. Both teams come into tonight’s game winners of two straight games.
For the first time since December, the Detroit Red Wings have started to look good at the Joe. The Red Wings shutout the Florida Panthers on Wednesday, 3-0.
Dion Phaneuf is expected to be in the lineup for the Senators tonight. If you remember, the Red Wings were reportedly close to acquiring Phaneuf last season but wouldn’t part with Anthony Mantha.
The Red Wings have won two of the three meetings against the Senators so far this season.
Here is all the important information for tonight’s game:

The Red Wings, coming off two straight wins have looked good. They have outscored the New York Islanders and Florida Panthers 8-1 over these two games.
Kukla’s Korner says the Red Wings will not have any lineup changes for tonight. Why would they? If it isn’t broke don’t fix it and this lineup has been very good for the Red Wings.
Even though the Florida Panthers beat the Buffalo Sabres last night, to go back up eight points in the Atlantic Division, if the Red Wings can stay hot that will bode well for them catching the Panthers.
