Red Wings hope rest pays off against Penguins

The Detroit Red Wings got a rare four-day break in the schedule to work on their issues.

The Wings carry a 10-game losing streak (0-8-2) into their home game against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday. Detroit's 7-20-3 record is easily the worst in the NHL.

Coach Jeff Blashill held three practices since Detroit's last game, a 4-1 home loss to the New York Islanders on Monday, in an effort to make his club more competitive. He emphasized a positive approach.
