Red Wings hope to continue dominance of Blackhawks

Mar 2, 2007 - 3:32 PM Chicago (23-33-9) at Detroit (40-16-8) 7:30 pm EST

DETROIT (Ticker) -- The Detroit Red Wings look to continue their dominance of the Chicago Blackhawks when the teams meet on Friday.

The Red Wings have the second-most points (88) in the Western Conference, but trail first-place Nashville by two points in the Central Division.

Detroit has won five straight over the Blackhawks, including a 4-1 victory on Tuesday. Tomas Holmstrom had two goals while Kyle Calder had a goal and an assist in his Detroit debut. The Red Wings acquired Calder from the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday.

On Tuesday, the Red Wings acquired power forward Todd Bertuzzi from the Florida Panthers. Bertuzzi, who had lower back surgery in November, is still a few weeks away from playing.

The Red Wings will be without leading scorer Henrik Zetterberg, who suffered a back injury against the Blackhawks on Tuesday, for about two weeks. The right wing had nine goals and seven assists in his seven-game points streak.

The Blackhawks fell to 1-5-2 in their last eight after a 6-1 loss to the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday. Tuomo Ruutu scored his 14th goal while goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin stopped just 26-of-31 shots.

Khabibulin is 1-3-1 with 16 goals allowed in his last five starts. He is 0-4-0 with a 3.81 goals-against average in four starts against Detroit.
