The Detroit Red Wings are on a bit of a winning streak after the Thanksgiving holiday and hope to continue their winning streak as they welcome the Arizona Coyotes to Motown on Friday night.

Since having some rough finishing days at the start of their road trip in California, the Red Wings have begun to fulfill some of the potential many have been expecting from the growing team. They took care of the San Jose Sharks before dominating against the Columbus Blue Jackets last Saturday. That was followed up when they returned home last Wednesday when Ville Husso pitched his third shutout of the season against the Nashville Predators. On Black Friday, the Wings are in the top three in the Atlantic Division with the fifth-best record in the Eastern Conference.
The story is not quite the same for the Arizona Coyotes. The fledgling franchise, which will play on a college rink for the next three seasons (at least), had little to no expectations going into the season. However, Arizona has shown some struggle despite their undermined roster as they are not last in the Western Conference as many expected. The Coyotes get a big win on Wednesday night, beating potential Stanley Cup favorites in the Carolina Hurricanes.
As bad as Arizona was last season, they were able to take care of both games against the Red Wings, including a 9-2 thrashing at LCA last March.
