The Detroit Red Wings will look to bounce back quickly from their loss in Columbus when they take on the struggling Dallas Stars on Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. ET at American Airlines Center.
Dallas broke a two-game losing streak when they beat the Philadelphia Flyers 5–2 on Nov. 13. The Stars currently rank sixth in the Central Division with a 5–6–2 record, good for the seventh-worst points percentage (.462) in the entire National Hockey League.
Detroit fell to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday by a 5–3 score, squandering a late 3–2 lead and ultimately failing to collect even a single point. @Dylan Larkin, @Michael Rasmussen, and @Lucas Raymond scored for the Red Wings in the defeat, which gave the team an 8–7–2 record on the season.
With @Mitchell Stephens injured, both @Carter Rowney and @Joe Veleno played for the Red Wings on Monday. Expect @Alex Nedeljkovic to start for Detroit on Tuesday after @Thomas Greiss allowed four goals on 37 shots in Columbus.

The Red Wings

Detroit went with these combinations against the Blue Jackets:
@Tyler Bertuzzi – @Dylan Larkin – @Lucas Raymond
@Filip Zadina – @Pius Suter – @Robby Fabbri
@Vladislav Namestnikov – @Michael Rasmussen – @Adam Erne
@Carter Rowney – @Joe Veleno – @Sam Gagner
Danny DeKeyser – @Moritz Seider
@Nick Leddy – @Filip Hronek
@Marc Staal – Gustav Lindström
@Alex Nedeljkovic will likely start in Dallas. He’s 4–2–2 with a .918 save percentage this season

The Stars

Dallas skated with these lines on Tuesday morning:
@Jason Robertson – @Roope Hintz – @Joe Pavleski
@Jacob Peterson – @Tyler Seguin – @Alexander Radulov
@Michael Raffl – @Jamie Benn – @Denis Gurianov
@Riley Tufte – @Radek Faksa – @Luke Glendening
@Ryan Suter – @John Klingberg
@Esa Lindell – @Miro Heiskanen
@Andrej Sekera – @Jani Hakanpaa
@Jake Oettinger will start in goal for Dallas tonight. The 22-year-old goaltender has yet to make his season debut but posted an 11–8–7 record with a .911 save percentage in 29 appearances with the Stars last year.

Scoring leaders

Detroit: @Tyler Bertuzzi (nine goals, 17 points); @Lucas Raymond (seven goals, 17 points); @Dylan Larkin (seven goals, 13 points); @Moritz Seider (two goals, 12 points); @Vladislav Namestnikov (seven goals, 10 points).
Dallas: @Miro Heiskanen (three goals, 12 points); @Tyler Seguin (five goals, eight points); @Joe Pavelski (four goals, eight points); @Ryan Suter (one goal, seven points); @Alexander Radulov (one goal, seven points).

Players to watch

Detroit: After being scratched for a couple of games early in the season, @Filip Hronek is once again a fixture in the lineup for Detroit. He’s up to nine points in 15 games but is still searching for his second goal of the year, having gone the Red Wings’ last eight contests without one.
Dallas: Believe it or not, @Luke Glendening currently sits in a tie for second on the Stars with four goals in 13 games. The 32-year-old veteran of eight seasons with the Red Wings scored just six goals in 54 games with Detroit last season. Glendening already has 21 shots in 13 games, putting him on pace for a career-high 132 in a full season.

Monday’s Red Wings game will be broadcast exclusively on Hulu at 8:30 p.m ET. It’ll be sent over the airwaves on WXVT-FM 97.1 “The Ticket” in the Detroit area, as well as on the Red Wings’ official website.
