Detroit Red Wings
The Red Wings looked both sluggish and sloppy in their last game, a 1–0 loss in Buffalo. They are now 0–4–1 in their last five. A trip to Tampa Bay will likely do nothing to help that.
There is some good news, however. Andreas Athanasiou is practicing this week and could be in the lineup soon, though it doesn’t appear it will be soon enough to face the Lightning.
Detroit started 4–1 by winning some close games. Now those close games are going the other way. It won’t be next week until the Wings are back at home, too.
They have to finish off Florida with Tampa Bay on Thursday and the Panthers over the weekend before they get back to Motown.
Tampa Bay Lightning
The Lightning are going as well as any team out there right now. They scored in every period, including three in the third, on Tuesday to down the Hurricanes, 5–1.
That win comes on the heels of a 7–1 drubbing of Pittsburgh and a shutout win over Columbus the game before that. This Tampa Bay team can win in all sorts of ways.
They have been perfect at home, too. They all love Steven Stamkos in Amalie Arena and he notched two more points against the Hurricanes to up his total to 20 this season.
He leads the NHL and second is his teammate Nikita Kucherov with 17. The next closest to anybody not on the Tampa Bay first line? Jaden Schwartz of St. Louis with 13.
