5 things to watch: Red Wings look to extend win streak


After beginning 0-2 for the first time in seven years, the Detroit Red Wings are driving a four-game successful ability, Kane Jersey, related their lengthiest run of 2015-16.

It’s another active 7 times, with four activities in six evenings, three of them at house, where the Red Wings are 3-0.

Here are five things to look at this week:

Seeking five in a row

The Red Wings will search for their fifth in a row Wednesday, when the Carolina Tornados check out Joe Louis Field (7:30 p.m., Fox Activities Detroit). Detroit’s last win ability of at least five activities was a six-game run from Jan. 13-27, 2015.

Carolina won twice at JLA in a duration of 11 times one season ago, but the Red Wings are 10-4 in their previous 14 vs. the Tornados.

Forwards Martin Frk and Andrej Nestrasil, stated off waivers from the Red Wings, have been mostly healthier scrapes. Nestrasil has performed two activities, Frk one.

This will be the 6th successive street activity for the Tornados (1-2-2), whose house operator is Weekend.

Larkin looking to get rid of through

After six activities, nobody predicted Dylan Larkin to have more battles (one) than objectives (none). But Larkin is second on the group with 17 photos and is enjoying hard and producing possibilities. The conversion to middle, with included protecting liability, was challenging. He has shifted returning to the side previous times two activities.

Others also are looking to get rid of through; one range (Gustav Nyquist-Darren Helm-Thomas Vanek) is providing most of the violation. Henrik Zetterberg, returning at middle previous times two activities, has no objectives, three helps and just seven photos. Tomas Tatar has one objective and one support but has produced possibilities and brings the group with 18 photos.

Blues streak

The Red Wings on Weekend check out St. Louis (8 p.m., FSD), where they have won four in a row, previous times two in extra time.

The Doldrums (4-1-1) obtained right side Fingernail Yakupov, the NHL’s top choose this season, from Edmonton before the season. He has two objectives and four factors. St. Louis is No. 1 in the group on the charge destroy (95 percent).

Rookie defenseman He Sproul made a powerful impact in his first two activities, adding offensively (two helps, seven shots) and enjoying well defensively.

The protection performed well enough over the weekend that there likely won’t be something different for Wednesday (Xavier Ouellet was the only healthier scratch). Can Sproul protected a normal identify in the collection, even when Niklas Kronwall profits from his joint issue? The 6-4 Sproul’s big right taken is a resource, especially on the ability perform.

Back-to-back at house again

The Red Wings hardly ever perform house activities on successive times, but the compacted planned has led to two places this 30 days. After defeating Chattanooga and San Jose over the weekend, Detroit serves Birkenstock boston on Weekend (7 p.m., FSD) and California Weekend (5 p.m., FSD Plus).

The Bruins (3-2-0) have won seven of their previous eight against the Red Wings. Tuukka Rask (3-0, 1.67 goals-against frequent, .947 preserve percentage) and Kaira Marchand (three objectives, nine points) are off to powerful begins.

Florida (3-1-1), which defeat the Detroit 4-1 on Oct. 15, is 6-3-0 in its previous nine vs. the Red Wings. Jonathan Marchessault brings the Panthers with seven factors.
