The Detroit Red Wings look to start another winning streak fewer than 24 hours after their six-game run came to an end as they host the struggling Florida Panthers on Sunday. The Red Wings managed just 24 shots on goal in a 1-0 loss to Boston on Saturday night, but received another outstanding goaltending performance as Jimmy Howard made 35 saves.

The Panthers have lost the first three on their four-game road trip, managing just four goals, and are 1-4-1 since winning their first two games of 2016-17.

Defenseman Aaron Ekblad, who finished with 15 goals last season, has just one tally in the first eight games despite a team-high 26 shots on net.

After a good start to the season with the man advantage, Detroit has gone scoreless in 17 attempts on the power play the last four games. It hasn’t helped that Thomas Vanek, who shares the team lead in goals (four) and points (eight), missed the last two games with a groin injury.

The teams split four contests in 2015-16 and the Panthers rolled over the Red Wings 4-1 on Oct. 15 in this season’s second game
