Red Wings-Hurricanes game-day articles: Green out, Lashoff questionable

Updated 4x at 1:41 PM: The Detroit Red Wings face the Carolina Hurricanes this evening (7:00 PM on FSD Plus/FS Carolinas/97.1 FM), and the teams' morning skates revealed the goaltending match-up (Cam Ward vs. Jimmy Howard) as well as Mike Green's absence from the Wings' lineup due to an undisclosed injury.

Based upon the Wings beat writers' Tweets, it sounds like Green may not play again until after Christmas, and Brian Lashoff may miss tonight's game after taking a puck in the face during the morning skate. If that happens, Nick Jensen will step in.

The Red Wings will also attempt to snap Carolina's 9-game home unbeaten streak (8-0-and-1) tonight, and then the team heads to Tampa Bay for a Tuesday meeting against the Lightning.

After the Canes' morning skate, CarolinaHurricanes.com's Michael Smith posted the Canes' probable lines...

Red Wings-Hurricanes morning skate Tweets and articles: Howard vs. Ward; Green is out, Lashoff hurt

The Detroit Red Wings take on the Carolina Hurricanes this evening (7:00 PM EST on FSD Plus/FS Carolinas/97.1 FM), with the Wings aiming to snap Carolina's 9-game home unbeaten streak.

Mike Green's status is up in the air this morning, and the Wings have recalled Nick Jensen from the Grand Rapids Griffins,  so the Wings may be without their #1 defenseman this evening and tomorrow, when the Wings face the Tampa Bay Lightning.

MLive's Brendan Savage sets up tonight's game via a game preview...

* The Hurricanes are 8-0-1 in their last nine home games dating back to Nov. 12. During that stretch, team they've beaten include Tampa Bay, Florida, Montreal, San Jose and Washington. The Lightning are the only team among those five not holding down a playoff spot. Carolina is 9-3-1 at home.

The Wings This Week

from Brendan Savage of Mlive,

Here are five things to watch this week:

Toughest stretch of the season

The next couple of weeks might not make the Red Wings' season but it could very well break it.

Beginning tonight, they'll play 10 of their next 11 games on the road during a span of 25 days. That's almost 25 percent of their entire road schedule.

They'll play Carolina, the Tampa Bay Lightning Tuesday and Florida Panthers Friday before getting a three-day holiday break. That's followed by their only home game in the next 11, Dec. 27 vs. Buffalo.

Then it's back on the road for seven more, including five straight against Western Conference foes Anaheim, Los Angeles, San Jose, Chicago and Dallas....

Drought vs. Florida teams

The Red Wings haven't fared well against the Sunshine State's two teams this season.

In five matchups with Tampa Bay and Florida, the Red Wings have a 0-4-1 record. That includes road losses of 5-3 vs. Tampa and 4-1 against the Panthers to open the season....

The overnight report: Red Wings-Hurricanes set-up—Wings hit the road against a streaking home team

The Detroit Red Wings take on the Carolina Hurricanes this evening (7:00 PM on FSD Plus/FS Carolinas/97.1 FM), and the Red Wings face a unique challenge in the 13-11-and-7 Hurricanes:

Unlike the Red Wings, Carolina has a superb home record, including an 8-0-and-1 record over their past 9 games, with their most recent victory coming in the form of a 2-1 shootout win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday. The Hurricanes have actually traded wins and losses over the course of their past 8 games, and they're 4-3-and-3 over their past 10 games, but they've been unbeatable at home.

Neither team practiced on Sunday, with the Red Wings choosing to skip practice as they begin a set of 2 games in 2 nights this evening (tonight in Raleigh and tomorrow against Tampa Bay), and the Canes choosing to skip practice because they just finished a set of 2 games in 2 nights.

As such, it takes some re-piecing together of the narratives from Saturday night's games to set up tonight's affair.

NHL.com's Kurt Dusterberg provides a recap of Saturday night's Canes win...

Panic Not The Word Ken Holland Would Use

from George Sipple of the Detroit Free Press,

“First off, what is panic going to do?” Holland said. “Certainly we use the words ‘sense of urgency.’

“Where’s that fine line? There’s gotta be a process that takes place, whatever job you do in life. If you want to have success there’s a process you go through individually. We’re in a team sport.

“We gotta continue on that process.”

The Wings (14-14-4) sit in sixth place in the Atlantic Division, five points behind Ottawa (17-11-3) for second place.

The Wings have 50 games remaining. “We gotta get going,” Holland said.

Asked how much is on Wings coach Jeff Blashill to get the team going, Holland said: “I think it’s on everybody.

“It’s a hard league during the season, before the trade deadline, to make any moves. Not much going on.”
