A team on 2 game losing streak meets with a team on 2 game winning streak as the Detroit Red Wings visit Edmonton to take on the Oilers.
The Red Wings are in the midst of a 2 game losing streak as they dropped their 2nd straight game on Saturday, to the Montreal Canadiens in 4-1 fashion.

The Oilers have put together a mini two game winning streak of their own after a 2-1 win over Vancouver on Sunday.
Like Detroit, Edmonton is getting some production from their rookie. Connor McDavid has put in 2 goals to go along with a pair of assists in this 2 game winning streak for the Oilers.
Lauri Korpikoski continues to produce along side the rookie as he notched his 2nd goal in 3 games after converting on a breakaway attempt Sunday.
