DETROIT (Ticker) -- The Detroit Red Wings developed a lot of momentum behind goaltender Manny Legace. They will try to keep it going with Chris Osgood between the pipes.

Osgood will get the start Thursday when the Red Wings look to notch their franchise-record 10th straight win against the Edmonton Oilers.

The NHL's Defensive Player of the Month for October, Legace sprained his left knee late in the first period of Tuesday's 4-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks when Matthew Barnaby fell on him.

Legace, who became the first netminder to win 10 games in one month, had an MRI on Wednesday and is considered day-to-day, although he will not start Thursday.

A member of the Red Wings when they won nine straight twice in 1995-96, Osgood replaced Legace and made 23 saves on 24 shots in his second game of the season.

Jason Williams had a goal and an assist and defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom set up a pair of tallies Tuesday for Detroit, which can become the first team in NHL history to have 26 points after 14 games with a win against Edmonton.

The Oilers are coming off their third straight win, a 5-1 triumph over Columbus on Tuesday. Ales Hemsky scored a pair of goals and Jussi Markkanen made 23 saves for Edmonton, which has tallied five times in each of its last three games.
