Coming off a 3-2 shootout loss to the Washington Capitals, the Detroit Red Wings host the Montreal Canadiens tonight.
The Eastern Conference-leading Habs are without starting goalie Carey Price and are on a three-game losing streak. They’ll turn to Dustin Tokarski in the crease against Detroit. Tokarski held the Wings to a single goal in his appearance against them last season, a 4-1 Montreal victory on November 16.
Petr Mrazek gets the nod in goal for Detroit with no other lineup changes expected. Jakub Kindl will be the healthy scratch on defense.
Stupid stat of the day: The Red Wings have tied a franchise record with seven consecutive losses to the Canadiens.
Game time is 7:30 PM on FSD.
