(AP) — The Detroit Red Wings remain one of the league’s top teams despite their well-documented road struggles.

They haven’t had much trouble when visiting the Phoenix Coyotes in recent years.

Detroit seeks a second consecutive road win for the first time in six weeks when it faces slumping Phoenix on Thursday night.

The Red Wings (30-15-1) are one point behind Western Conference-leading Chicago, but haven’t won consecutive road contests since winning four straight Nov. 19-Dec. 2.

They’re in position to do so again, though, after a 3-2 shootout win Tuesday at Dallas. Jiri Hudler scored in regulation and added the winner in the tiebreaker, while Ty Conklin made 25 saves through overtime.
