ABOUT LAST GAME: Red Wings must do this to take strides forward

HEADING TO BEIJING: Justin Abdelkader leaves Wings’ AHL team to represent US at Olympics

Game notes: The Wings are on the second game of a back-to-back, after beating the Pittsburgh Penguins in a shootout. The win ended a skid of three games, with 17 goals over that span.

The Leafs won the first matchup between these two teams in October. They are one of the best teams in the league — albeit a bit inconsistent in the win column — ranking in the top 10 in power play percentage (first in the NHL), penalty kill percentage (fourth), goals allowed per game (sixth) and goals scored per game (seventh). Goaltender Jack Campbell is having an excellent season; 20-6-3 record, .926 save percentage and 2.26 goals allowed per game.

One big change from that October win: Tyler Bertuzzi will be in the lineup. The Wings’ leading scorer had to sit out the earlier game in Toronto, due to his unvaccinated status.

These two teams play again Feb. 26 and April 26. After Saturday’s Original Six matchup, Detroit stays home for a Monday game vs. the Anaheim Ducks while the Leafs play the New Jersey Devils that same evening.
