The Detroit Red Wings travel to Pittsburgh today to face the Penguins. The Red Wings are coming off a 3-2 shootout win against the Capitals yesterday.
The Detroit Red Wings face the Pittsburgh Penguins today in Pittsburgh in their last road game before the bye week.
The Red Wings snapped a five game losing streak yesterday by beating the Washington Capitals 3-2 in the shootout.
As usual nothing is easy for the Red Wings this season. The Capitals would score late in the second and late in the third to force overtime.
For as bad as the Red Wings have been this season, it’s pretty ironic that they’re 7-0 in the shootout after being so bad in the shootout the last two years.
Today they travel to Pittsburgh to face the Pittsburgh Penguins. This is the last game in that rough two week stretch and sure enough this stretch has been a disaster.
The Red Wings have one win and one overtime loss during this stretch and they have fallen even further behind the playoff race.
Petr Mrazek is expected to get the start tonight as he has seemingly regained his confidence during this stretch.
Things won’t be easy today in Pittsburgh for the Red Wings. The Penguins have the best home record in the league and they have scored the most goals in the league.
Once again the Red Wings can’t get into a high scoring game with a team like the Penguins. Mrazek has to steal this game and the Red Wings have to get a couple lucky bounces today.
Here is all the important information for today’s game:
Detroit Red Wings (23-25-10) at Pittsburgh Penguin (36-13-8)
