Red Wings vs. Maple Leafs preview
Toronto returned to winning ways for the first time in 11 days with a 3-2 win over Chicago on Wednesday.
“Overall we’ve always started well here,” Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas said of NHL.com’s Dave McCarthy. “It wasn’t the start we envisioned, but hopefully we can use it to endure hardships, question marks and criticism and learn how to deal with them well to help us move forward.”
The Maple Leafs beat the Blackhawks 3-2 in overtime on game winner William Nylander. Toronto’s leading scorer, six points, has three goals and is assisting this season.
“We got two big points (Wednesday), but there’s no question we need to tighten up our game,” Leafs captain John Tavares said of McCarthy. “It’s not the effort and commitment, but part of our execution in some areas defensively with access to our net needs to improve. It is too common to trust our guardians.
Detroit will look to maintain the Leafs’ one-game streak after finishing their own overtime game. The Red Wings lost to the unbeaten Florida Panthers (8-0-0) in a 3-2 overtime game on Friday.
“I’m disappointed that we didn’t have two [points]. We were obviously in a position where we could have gotten two, ”Red Wings head coach Jeff Blashill said according to Brett McWethy of DetroitRedWings.com. “I thought that in the second, we started to play better hockey. They have a great stretching game. They come back on the ice really well, so if you give them time and space, they have a great offensive attack.
Red Wings goaltender Alex Nedeljkovic has been solid in his last two starts with over 30 saves and stopping over 90% of opponents’ shots. With the Red Wings playing two nights in a row, the Leafs will likely have to pass Thomas Greiss instead. He has a .917 save percentage, a 2.55 goals-against average and a 3-1-0 record.
Toronto, meanwhile, have been trying to launch their offense all season – never scoring more than three goals in a game. After Nylander, the Leafs have no one with more than four points this season.
Leafs goalie Jack Campbell gives his team a particular chance when playing in goal. Campbell is 3-2-1 with a .918 save percentage and a 2.31 goals-against average. Substitutes Michael Hutchinson and Petr Mrazek each started once with losses, more than four goals against per game and save percentages in the top .800.
Detroit has offensive firepower led by left winger Tyler Bertuzzi, who has nine points on six goals and three assists. Lucas Raymond and Dylan Larkin each have eight points and Moritz Seider has seven. Vladislav Namestnikov, Adam Erne and Robby Fabbri have five each.
