Wrap Up

The Red Wings only have two games left this month and then will enter the All-Star break and won’t return to the ice until February 10th. Entering tonight’s tough matchup, the Red Wings are currently four points ahead of the Devils and Islanders for the final playoff spot; if they can find a way to scrape 2-3 points together over the next two games, they’ll be sitting in a nice spot entering the break and would have a decent chance to end their playoff drought and return to the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time since the 2015-16 season.

Detroit’s record against Vegas is 5-4-0 and has been outscored 28-26 in those nine games. Last season, Detroit split the season series with the Stanley Cup Champions.
