Detroit (39-14-5) at Anaheim (27-19-11) 10:30 pm EST
ANAHEIM, California (Ticker) -- The Detroit Red Wings will be
glad to have their lineup in tact Wednesday when they face the
Mighty Ducks of Anaheim for the third time this season.
Detroit returned from the Olympic break on Tuesday, falling 5-1
to San Jose as the team played without Nicklas Lidstrom, Henrik
Zetterberg, Tomas Holmstrom, Mikael Samuelsson and Niklas
Kronwall - all of whom were members of Sweden's gold
medal-winning team who missed the game to celebrate the victory
in their homeland.
Manny Legace allowed five power-play goals for the Red Wings,
who entered having killed off 45 of their last 47 penalties.
The veteran netminder will look to rebound Wednesday when he
takes on a Mighty Ducks against which he has posted an 8-1-1
career record with a 1.98 goals-against average.
Anaheim went 6-2-1 in its last nine games before the break to
move within three points of Edmonton for the final playoff spot
in the Western Conference.
