ST. PAUL, Minnesota (Ticker) -- The Detroit Red Wings look to snap out of their recent offensive funk when they visit the Minnesota Wild on Monday.

The Red Wings lead the Western Conference with 71 points but have dropped three of their last four and have seen their division lead over the second-place Nashville Predators shrink to just three points.

One of the NHL's top offensive clubs, Detroit has scored a total of six goals over its last four contests.

The Red Wings could not hold on to a late one-goal lead over the Dallas Stars on Saturday and eventually dropped a 2-1 decision in a shootout.

Tomas Holmstrom scored the lone goal for Detroit, which fell to 4-5 in overtime contests this season.

The Red Wings hope to get back on track against a Wild squad which had their franchise-record five-game winning streak snapped Friday.

Todd White tallied twice and added an assist, but Minnesota yielded three goals over a span of 11 minutes and dropped a 4-3 decision to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Pierre-Marc Bouchard scored a goal and assisted on another in the contest for the Wild, who have won four straight home decisions.
