Detroit Red Wings (12-9-3) vs. New York Islanders (5-10-3)
When: 7 p.m. Saturday.
Where: Little Caesars Arena in Detroit.
TV: Bally Sports Detroit.
Radio: WXYT-FM (97.1; Red Wings radio affiliates).
Game notes: The Red Wings will try to stay hot; they've won four straight and haven't lost in regulation since Nov. 18. Dylan Larkin is a plus-five over his past five games with four assists. Lucas Raymond has three goals over that span.
The Islanders have been the opposite of hot, losing nine straight — but at least they pushed San Jose to overtime Thursday in their first game since Nov. 26. That's somewhat of an accomplishment for a team that has lost seven of those nine by three goals or more and had two games this week postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak. New York is badly missing Brock Nelson, who leads the Islanders with nine goals despite not playing in nearly two weeks. These two teams meet twice more this month; Dec. 14 in Detroit and Dec. 29 in New York.
