The Red Wings look to put an end to their massive losing streak when they welcome in the much improved New York Islanders to Detroit on Friday night.
New York Islanders
The Islanders were a team looking to find their identity throughout the first half of the season.
A run towards the end that has carried over into the 2nd half has this team back in the playoff hunt. The Islanders enter play on Friday on a current 7 game point streak. New York boasts a 6-0-1 record during that span as they’re getting solid play on both sides of the puck.
New York comes in off an impressive win over the Washington Capitals last time out and looks to use that boost here on the road, a place where they have struggled.
New York has gone just 6-9-3-1 away from Brooklyn, as defensive struggles have led to their poor record. The Islanders have given up 3.05 goals per road game, one of the worst road marks in the league.
G Thomas Greiss is going to be a big reason why they have a chance here on Friday, as he enters play 9-2-3 over his last 14 games.
Detroit Red Wings
The Red Wings have just gone in the complete opposite direction of the Islanders.
Detroit enters play losers of 5 straight and if they don’t find a turnaround rather quickly, this team is going to see their season collapse.
The Wings have continued to try various things to get this team going, as line changes on both normal lines and power play lines were made. However, nothing has come about as this team has just simply struggled to get anything going.
They do have G Petr Mrazek to lean on here, as he has had good career numbers against the Islanders.
Mrazek enters play with a 4-2 record against New York and the Islanders enter play losers of the last 4 of 6 against Detroit.
