Wrap Up

Tonight is almost as close to a must-win as you can get with the Islanders taking on the Buffalo Sabres you need to find a way to get two points to either keep pace with them or even take back that final Wild Card spot that you held three weeks ago and had a ten point lead before you let it slip away. This team is badly missing Dylan Larkin and needs to find a way to step up, maybe the skirmish yesterday at practice between Lucas Raymond and Ben Chiarot will ignite some fire in the boys for tonight’s game.

In their last ten games against Arizona, Detroit is 4-4-2, and have been outscored by the Coyotes 36-28 in those ten games. Detroit lost to Arizona last Thursday 4-0.
