Wrap Up

The Red Wings are now 2-1-0 in their last three games, and this will wrap up a stretch of top teams in the Eastern Conference race. The fact the Red Wings have been playing some solid hockey is a promising outlook for the season, and the scoring has woken up, as they are even in scoring during those three games, scoring nine goals and allowing nine. The challenging part tonight is they may be without Dylan Larkin as he is a game-time decision after sustaining an injury in Saturday’s win over Boston; however, they do get Robby Fabbri back tonight, which should provide a boost to their scoring.

The Red Wings, in their last ten games against the New York, are 4-5-1 and have been outscored 34-22. The Red Wings last season went 2-1-0 against the Rangers but were outscored 11-9.
