ANAHEIM, California (Ticker) -- The Detroit Red Wings channelled their concern for their teammate with a dominant performance on Wednesday. They will look to keep that momentum rolling when they visit the Mighty Ducks on Anaheim on Friday.

Two days after defenseman Jiri Fischer suffered a seizure on the bench during the first period of Detroit's contest with the Nashville Predators, the Red Wings responded with a convincing 7-3 triumph over the Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday.

Mikael Samuelsson scored two goals and assisted on two others for Detroit, which snapped a season-high four-game losing streak.

Friday's game at Anaheim should be an emotional one for Detroit coach Mike Babcock, who guided the Mighty Ducks to an appearance in the Stanley Cup Finals in 2003.

Babcock, who signed with the Red Wings on July 14, will be coaching his first game at Arrowhead Pond of Anaheim since leaving the Ducks.

Anaheim has dropped nine of its last 10 games and will be without star goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere, who was placed on injured reserve Wednesday with a groin injury.
