Red Wings forward Lucas Raymond is thrilled to be playing NHL games in his Swedish homeland.

The Griswolds went on a European vacation, but the Detroit Red Wings are on a European mission. They are viewing the NHL Global Series, with games in Stickholm against the Ottawa Senators (Thursday) and Toronto Maple Leafs (Friday) as a business trip. And if they are able to come home packing a pair of wins, then business will be good.

“When we do hit the ice it’s to focus and be prepared to work on the things that we need to that will put us in the best position to win those two games,” Detroit defenseman Jeff Petry said.
