There’s no place like home for DET (35-17-2).  The Wings look to reach 18 consecutive home wins tonight, it is the league’s longest home win streak in nearly 36 years. The Wings sparkling 20-2-1 home record is due in large part to their blistering home scoring, they are averaging a whopping 3.83 goals per game at JLA, as opposed to only 2.52 goals per game on the road. And the good news is that DET finish their schedule with 18 of their remaining 28 games at the Joe, and tonights tilt with the Oil (21-27-5) starts a 6 game home stand for the club. The Wings will be looking for a little payback against the Oil after dropping last Saturdays game, 4-5, at EDM in the shootout.  Tonights tilt shouldn’t be too much trouble as the Oil are a league worst 6-19-2 on the road.  However, the Oil’s 22.0% PP (2) against the Wings gawd-awful 80.0% PK (25) will likely keep things closer than they should be.
