This is the first matchup for the Red Wings against their former teammate Tyler Bertuzzi as he is playing in his third game as a member of the Boston Bruins having recorded an assist in his first game. This game will be a tough task for the Red Wings as they will have to shut down the Bruins' explosive offense led by David Pastrnak. The Red Wings will be without Robby Fabbri for this one after he suffered an injury in Thursday's game, is considered day-to-day, and a huge loss for the Wings' offense. The Red Wings did call up Austin Czarnik to fill the gap.

The Red Wings' first defensive pairing in Moritz Seider and Jake Walman has done a great job keeping other teams superstars at bay since they were paired together for the first time on New Year's Eve. Magnus Hellberg gets the nod in net for this one and he will have a tough task as the Bruins' offense averages 3.76 goals per game which is second in the league. The Bruins also allow 2.10 goals a game while the Red Wings score 2.97 a game and allow 3.25 per game.

Wrap Up

The Red Wings picked up a much-needed win on Wednesday over the Blackhawks to snap their six-game losing streak and keep pace with the teams ahead of them for the playoff chase. Today’s game will not be an easy task against the best team in the league.

The Red Wings trail the Pittsburgh Penguins by seven points for the final playoff spot. They still have four teams ahead of them in the standings from reaching that spot, so they still need help. A win or even managing a point today could go a long way in the Red Wings building momentum.
