The Detroit Red Wings face the Los Angeles Kings tonight in LA. The Red Wings close out a back to back tonight after playing in Anaheim last night.
The Detroit Red Wings face the Los Angeles Kings tonight at the Staples Center. The Red Wings are finishing up a back to back and played the Anaheim Ducks last night.The Ducks led after the first period 1-0 thanks to a turnover by Jonathan Ericsson. I know, shocking right?
The Red Wings also had a hard time getting the puck of their zone in that period and while Petr Mrazek was good in the first, he let up a juicy rebound on that Ducks goal. Brendan Smith thought he tied the game in the second period but the goal was overturned due to goalie interference. The game would remain 1-0 heading to the third.
The Ducks added a late goal in the third to seal the game and win it 2-0. The Red Wings again were awful on the power play. They haven’t score a power play goal on the road since October 19th.
Mrazek was not bad last night but the Red Wings defense and special teams let them down again. They also lost Smith and Niklas Kronwall to injuries during this game.
Things don’t get easier for the Red Wings as they face the Los Angeles Kings tonight especially with the Red Wings playing a back to back. With Mrazek getting the start last night, I would think Jared Coreau would get the start tonight.
Here is all the important information for tonight’s game:
Detroit Red Wings (16-17-5) at Los Angeles Kings (19-15-4)
