A pair of clubs on lengthy losing streaks will try to get back on track tonight, as the Detroit Red Wings host the Anaheim Ducks at Joe Louis Arena.

DETROIT -- Maybe all the Red Wings need is for Darren Helm to get his hair cut.
Helm's blond hair curls out from under his helmet and his facial hair is a bit scruffy these days.
"Change things up, feel fresh, feel better, feel good about yourself and come to the rink with a better attitude," Helm said after Friday's practice. "(Maybe) get a haircut, shave...
DETROIT -- The Red Wings didn't care that the Anaheim Ducks were at the end of a seven-game, 13-day road trip, they just needed a win.
Captain Nick Lidstrom, the ageless wonder, led the way with two goals and an assist as the Wings shut out the Ducks, 5-0, at Joe Louis Arena Saturday night.
"What can you say about Nick that hasn't been said, you know?" said goaltender...
The roadtrip began with so much promise.
After a thrilling, hard-fought 3-2 shootout loss in Chicago on October 25 that was followed by a textbook road performance in a 3-2 win at Minnesota two nights later, the Anaheim Ducks appeared on the precipice of breaking out of some early season inconsistencies with a unifying business trip through the Central and Eastern time zones.
Nicklas Lidstrom had two goals and an assist, Jimmy Howard made 22 saves for his seventh NHL shutout, and the Detroit Red Wings snapped a six-game losing streak by beating the Anaheim Ducks 5-0 on Saturday night.
The Red Wings also broke out of a scoring slump after they netted only six goals during their slide.
Johan Franzen had a goal and two assists, and Niklas Kronwall and...
Detroit Red Wings veteran right wing Todd Bertuzzi will miss Saturday's game against the Anaheim Ducks with the flu.
Bertuzzi, 36, will be replaced in the lineup by the 26-year-old left wing Fabian Brunnstrom, who was recalled from Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League.
The 23rd overall pick of the 1993 draft, Bertuzzi has collected one goal, two assists and 18 penalty...
The Detroit Red Wings and New York Islanders put an end to their respective six-game losing skids on Saturday.
Reigning Norris Trophy winner Nicklas Lidstrom scored two goals and Jimmy Howard made 22 saves for his seventh career shutout as the Red Wings posted a 5-0 victory over the road-weary Anaheim Ducks.
Lidstrom and Henrik Zetterberg scored 50 seconds apart early in the second...
Mired in their worst losing streak in four seasons, the Detroit Red Wings may get just what they need with a home game against the struggling Anaheim Ducks.
After all, facing the Ducks at Joe Louis Arena has almost always led to a win in the past.
The Red Wings try to avoid losing seven straight for the first time in two decades and continue their home dominance over Anaheim on...
The Red Wings talked extensively about getting back to basics before losing, 4-1, on Thursday night at Joe Louis Arena to Calgary, the latest in a string of one-goal performances. They talked about it again afterward, as neither Henrik Zetterberg nor Pavel Datsyuk, the team's superstar forwards, had a shot on net after 40 minutes and only combined for three in the third period.
The last time the Red Wings ended a six-game losing streak, it took a hard hit that knocked Nicklas Lidstrom out of the game four seasons ago.
The Red Wings are on a six-game losing streak as Anaheim arrives in Detroit.When: 4 PDT.
Valtteri Filppula doesn't have the answer any more than his teammates do: How can they, as a group, and how can he, as a top-six forward, be in such a mess? Since starting 5-0, the Red Wings have tumbled down the standings and stumbled to score. They haven't won in two weeks, have one point during their past six games, all losses, and have six goals during that stretch.
Win or lose, you still have to support the home team. If you can't get to Joe Louis Arena tonight, check out the Red Wings-Ducks game on Fox Sports Detroit at 7. And, of course, it's "Hockey Night in Canada." The Bruins take on the Maple Leafs in Toronto at 7 on (CBC, Channel 9), and the red-hot Oilers host Phoenix at 10.
It has been a long time between victories for Hockeytown's finest, and the world has changed a bit in the meantime. (Though not as much as some people would have you believe.)
If there’s a remedy to end The Suck, it has to be Corey Perry.
