Coming off a 2-1 overtime loss to the Montreal Canadiens, the Red Wings host the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight in Detroit’s “Hockey Fights Cancer” game.
As part of the event, goalie Jimmy Howard will wear a pink-accented mask.
The Penguins are coming off a 5-3 loss last night to the cross-state rival Philadelphia Flyers, in which they also debuted a unique piece of game-wear – their new throwback alternate jerseys.
Stupid stat of the day: The Red Wings are 21-9-6 all-time in the regular season against the Penguins at Joe Louis Arena.
Game time is 7:30 on FSD.
