The Red Wings put their unbeaten road trip record on the line when they visit the Pacific Division leading Los
Angeles Kings on Monday night.
Detroit has taken the first four games of their 6 game road trip, all in which have come by 1 goal.
In the midst of a 4 game home stand, the Kings have split the first two games.
The Red Wings ended 2015 in a crashing manner as they dropped their final 3 games.
Once the calendar flipped though, the Wings momentum flipped as well. Detroit has won 4 straight games, all by a 1 goal margin as they continue their surge here in 2016.
The Red Wings haven’t been doing it with flashy offense as they’ve scored just 5 goals over their last 3 games. They’re only scoring 2.48 goals per game this season, so it comes as no surprise they’re struggling to find the back of the net.
Riley Sheahan was responsible for the tie breaking goal in the Wings last win as they knocked off Anaheim 2-1. Sheahan’s goal came with just over 3 minutes to play in the game.
The Wings have gone 11-5-2-1 away from home this season, which was boosted by their current 4 game road winning streak.
Los Angeles has split the first two games of their home stand, but have accumulated 3 points over the 2 games.
The Kings grabbed a 2-1 win over Toronto to start things off and then just 2 days later they fell by that same score in a shootout to St. Louis. The Kings will have 2 more home games remaining on this home stand, which bodes well as they are 13-6-0-1 inside the Staples Center this season.
Anze Kopitar continues to light up the scoresheet as he scored the only goal in the loss to St. Louis. Kopitar now has 11 points over the past 8 games for the Kings.
G Jonathan Quick has been a major reason for success for the Kings this season, especially as of late. Over his last 7, Quick has gone 6-0-1 and has allowed just 2 goals in 5 of those games.
Los Angeles will look to avoid falling in the season series to the Wings this season as they dropped a 3-2 decision in Detroit earlier in the year.

The Red Wings have been holding opponents from finding the back of the net themselves, which hasn’t caused them any problems from their lack of scoring. Look for another lower scoring game here as both tenders have played extremely well.
