Things to Look For

Robby Fabbri is back, and the Wings hope he can provide a spark. “He has a good stick,” coach Derek Lalonde said Monday. “He did a good job with his rehab (and) worked really hard at it. I was told by our medical professionals he was a month out and it’s been probably three weeks and change, which is a good sign for us.” Christian Fischer is expected to play, but Dylan Larkin’s availability may be a game-time decision. Larkin sustained an upper-body injury in Saturday’s win over Boston. …

The Rangers have their injury woes as well. The list of injured includes goalie Igor Shesterkin, who is day-to-day and didn’t dress in New York’s overtime loss to Minnesota over the weekend. Jonathan Quick is the backup. The longtime L.A. Kings goalie has won seven of his last eight starts against the Red Wings. …

Klim Kostin and Joe Veleno demonstrate why, as they try to put together furniture, why they shouldn’t give up on playing hockey any time soon.

Ville Husso will get the start tonight in goal. The Red Wings, meanwhile, have trailed 2-0 to start each of their last five games, and Husso has allowed more than his share of bad goals, “We only gave them five scoring chances five on five the entire game to Boston,” Lalonde said. “Unfortunately, two of those were in the back of our net to start the game. Ville has given us a chance; 5-2-1, we’ll take that win percentage. His numbers reflect that sporadic play. He’s probably in the bottom 40, 50th in the league with some of his numbers. Obviously, not good enough. We feel very confident when he’s in net. I think he’s working on complete games.” …

Meanwhile, online sportsbooks are liking what they’ve seen so far from the Red Wings.
