The Bottom Line – Can Detroit Contend with the Oilers' High-Powered Offense?
The Red Wings face a difficult start to the second half of the season with the Oilers in town. With McDavid and Draisaitl leading the charge, the Red Wings must focus on playing strong defense and forcing the Oilers to the outside. Ville Husso will need to bring his best game in net, but it may still not be enough to secure a win against the talented Oilers offense.
