The Senators look to complete the home and home sweep of the Red Wings on Saturday night as the teams meet up at the Canadian Tire Centre.
The Red Wings look to shake off a 3-1 home loss at the hands of the Sens on Friday night as they get their shot at redemption on Saturday in an Atlantic division show down between two playoff hopefuls. The Wings couldn't get the offense going last night and have struggled for the most part scoring goals this season averaging just 2.3 goals per game and now take to the road where they have lost three of their first five games. The Wings will turn to Petr Mrazek in this one as he is the confirmed starter and he will go opposite Craig Anderson who was on the bench last night as Andrew Hammond was credited with the win at Joe Louis Arena.

The Senators jumped into second place in the division with the win last night and could move to within six points of the Canadiens with a victory tonight but beating the same team on back to back nights is a tough task even when you are traveling back home. Ottawa has struggled to win games at home this season which is a rarity for them as they are traditionally a tough at at the Canadian Tire Center but they have another shot at it tonight in front of what should be an excited group of Sens Army supporters. Ottawa is a light favourite here which gives us the value with Detroit but to be honest I had already pegged the Sens winning this game before their road win last night and I think they get the sweep here with a second straight win over Detroit.
