After 17 seasons with the Senators, Daniel Alfredsson returns to Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa for the first time since signing with the Red Wings during the offseason.

"It's going to be great to meet a lot of friends," said Alfredsson. "That's what you miss the most. The game on Sunday will be very special."

The Red Wings are 5-1-1 in their past seven road games and 8-3-1 after Alfredsson and Darren Helm each scored twice in the win Friday. Since a seven-game winless streak, Detroit is 4-1-0, including 14 goals in its past three games.

"I think we're finding ways to put the puck in the net. I don't know if we are doing things a whole lot different from what we were doing when we kept on losing those games in OT and shootout, just the confidence of the puck going in is with us right now," Helm said.

Welcome to the Detroit Red Wings Game Day Blog, where you can get behind-the-scenes information, thoughts from players and staff, and up-to-date news on anything and everything Red Wings on game day.

You can watch today's 5:30 PM matchup on Fox Sports Detroit-Plus, NHL Network, or TSN or RDS for our Canadian fans, or listen in with Ken Kal and Paul Woods on AM1270.
