Red Wings-Coyotes Preview 2-6-12

(AP) — Following a rare defeat, the Detroit Red Wings will try for another sweep of the Phoenix Coyotes.

The NHL-leading Red Wings will attempt to clinch an unblemished record in the season series and a positive end to their season-high road stretch Monday night.

Detroit (35-16-2) lost for only the second time in 11 games Saturday by failing to finish its comeback from an early two-goal deficit.

After scoring his 300th goal early in the third period, Todd Bertuzzi tallied a tiebreaking one with 3:41 remaining, but the Oilers answered with 39 seconds left in regulation then won 5-4 in the sixth round of the shootout.
