Detroit has won in all three of its stops so far during its current road swing, and a win in Winnipeg tonight is all that stands between the Wings and a perfect 4-0-0 mark on the trip. Detroit looked particularly impressive in its last game on Saturday, beating the Edmonton Oilers 5-0.
"We controlled the game and played well," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. "We wanted to play three periods, not two like we did (against Calgary)."
With three straight wins, the Red Wings are now in a three-way tie for first place in the Atlantic Division with the Tampa Bay Lightning and Toronto Maple Leafs.
