The Detroit Red Wings are in Anaheim to take on the Ducks at 10:30 p.m. EDT.
The Red Wings have won four games in a row, their longest winning streak this season, and are getting production from everyone on the roster. The offense has been able to score when needed, the defense has been impenetrable and Jimmy Howard, well he has been Jimmy Howard.
Anaheim is coming off of a loss to Phoenix, but have scored three goals in their past four games. Selanne, Getzlaf, Perry, and Ryan are big offense weapons for the Ducks and when they are crying and getting thrown out of games they need to be watched constantly.
Justin Abdelkader could be an X-factor for the Red Wings, he has 4 points against the Duck this season.
The other X-facter could be the “Get the puck to Eaves” line. Tootoo’s fore-checking, Emmerton’s defense, and Eaves’ shot is a beautiful combination.
Prediction: The Red Wings are hot, why would they cool down now? Red Wings victory 3-1.
