Red Wings hope to bounce back from woeful showing

Phoenix (28-33-5) at Detroit (43-15-8), 7:30 pm EDT

DETROIT (Ticker) -- The Detroit Red Wings look to rebound from a

blowout loss and take over the top spot in the Western

Conference on Tuesday, when they face the Phoenix Coyotes.

The Red Wings, who are tied with San Jose Sharks for first place

in the West, are coming off an 8-2 thrashing at the hands of the

Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday.

"You get mad. You don't want to play like this, especially in

front of your home fans," Detroit left wing Henrik Zetterberg

said. "You just have to look yourself in the mirror and come

back and do a lot better job."

The Coyotes, who are in 14th place in the conference, are hoping

to avoid a third straight loss. Phoenix suffered a 3-2 loss to

the woeful New York Islanders on Sunday.

Scottie Upshall and captain Shane Doan tallied and

newly-acquired Matthew Lombardi collected two assists for the

Coyotes, who have scored two goals or less in six straight

games.
