Really quick and dirty GDT today. DET (24-13-1) take their 18th ranked road record (9-11-0) to DAL tonight to begin a four game road trip [you can do the math - all but two of DET’s losses occurred on the road]. While the Wings have won 12 straight at JLA, they have lost six of nine on the road heading into this trip.
The Stars (21-15-1) are struggling to keep pace in the Pacific, and just looking at the numbers it is no wonder why. They are upside down in scoring (-0.21 goal differential), have poor special teams (15.2 PP (21) and 81.2 PK (22), and give up the most shots in the league (32.1 SA/G). However, DAL is coming off an impressive 4-2 win against BOS. Kari Lehtonen needed to make only 18 saves, and DAL scored two PP goals to end a four game, 0-for-11 drought on the PP.
Homer and Helm are still out. LGRW and Let’s Go Blue.
