Red Wings In Case You Missed It

Goalie Ville Husso continues to be the Detroit Red Wings’ most valuable contributor.
Red Wings’ Next Game
The Red Wings (24-20-8) play the Edmonton Oilers (30-19-5) in Edmonton tonight. If Vrana plays tonight, the hope would be that he can provide an offensive charge. The Oilers are 9-1-2 in their past 12 games. Edmonton has averaged 4.5 goals per game in that span. The recent surge includes a 5-2 win against the Red Wings in Detroit on Feb. 7
