Pregame: Red Wings @ Lightning – Game 2

Having stolen away home ice advantage in the series with a 3-2 win in Game One on Thursday, the Red Wings have a chance to take control with a Game Two win over the Lightning.

They’ll need to do better than their 14-shot performance in the opening game, where 44 saves by Petr Mrazek kept the Red Wings alive.

Mrazek gets the start again for Detroit, as the Red Wings will roll the same lineup as they won with.

Stupid stat of the day: The Red Wings have not won the first two games of a series since their 2011 sweep of the Phoenix Coyotes in the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

Game time is 3:00 PM on NBC.
