The Detroit Red Wings will look for a fourth straight win when they visit the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight.
Rookie goaltender Petr Mrazek will make his 11th consecutive start despite Jimmy Howard being healthy and activated off of injured reserve. Mrazek has put together a 9-1-0 record in Howard’s absence while posting a 0.67 goals-against average during the team’s current win streak.
The Penguins could have Blake Comeau back in the lineup. Comeau has missed 20 games with an upper body injury. His return could help the Penguins offensively. Pittsburgh failed to score more than two goals in 14 of the 20 games Comeau missed.
Detroit edged the Penguins 4-3 in overtime in the only other meeting between the two clubs this season. Tonight marks the second of three meetings.
Puck drop is at 8 p.m. ET on NBCSN. You can also stream it on NBC Sports Live Extra.
