(AP) — Since setting the NHL record for consecutive home victories less than two weeks ago, the Detroit Red Wings have scuffled a bit on their own ice.

A visit from the road-weary Minnesota Wild could help them get back on track at Joe Louis Arena.

Shorthanded Detroit tries to avoid going winless in three straight home games for the first time in almost four months Friday night against the Wild.

The Red Wings (42-19-3), who defeated San Jose 3-2 on Feb. 19 to set a league record with their 23rd straight home victory, have since been handed a pair of narrow defeats in front of their home crowd.

Two days after suffering a 4-3 shootout loss to Vancouver, Detroit fell 4-3 to Colorado on Saturday and into an 0-2-1 skid overall. The Red Wings, however, took advantage of Tuesday’s matchup against the league’s worst team and regrouped with a 5-2 win at Columbus.
