(SportsNetwork.com) - The Detroit Red Wings aim to extend their longest winning streak of the season to five straight games on Tuesday night as they play host to the Florida Panthers. The Red Wings closed the month of November on a roll, beating Vancouver 5-3 on Sunday to improve to 8-2-1 in their past 11 games. Pavel Datsyuk scored twice versus the Canucks, giving him nine goals and 15 points in 13 contests this season. Gustav Nyquist, Niklas Kronwall and Danny DeKeyser all lit the lamp for the Red Wings, while Jimmy Howard stopped 30 shots in the win. Detroits opener of a four-game homestand was delayed for about a half hour less than a minute in after a power surge affected some of the lights in the arena. In the end, we got two points, thats what matters, said Detroit forward Henrik Zetterberg, who had two assists. We played a good team here today and its nice to see that we can get some goals. Detroit forward Justin Abdelkader left the game with a shoulder injury and is day-to-day, though unlikely to play tonight. The Panthers hope to rebound after having a two-game winning streak halted with a 2-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday night. Rookie defenseman Aaron Ekblad had his clubs goal, giving him three tallies and 12 points on the season. With Roberto Luongo not starting for a second game in a row due to an upper- body injury, Al Montoya made 21 saves in defeat. These are the games that we have to have, said Montoya. Some nights you need to slug it out 2-1, and we werent able to do that. Luongo did back up last night and may start this contest. He is 7-5-5 this season with a 2.33 goals against average and .927 save percentage in 17 starts. The Panthers won three of their five meetings with the Red Wings last season, winning both trips to Detroit. Wholesale Air Jordan 6 Canada

.com) - Ames, IA (SportsNetwork.NEW YORK -- Ernesto Frieri has lost his job as Los Angeles Angels closer -- at least for a while. Angels manager Mike Scioscia says setup man Joe Smith will step into the stopper role until Frieri works out his problems beginning Friday night when the Angels play the New York Yankees. "We want to get Ernie off of that treadmill and let him get an inning or two where he can try to make some adjustments," Scioscia said. "Historically, Ernie has responded well to this. We need him, and I think this is the best route to take to get to the final solution we want." The move comes two days after Frieri allowed four runs and three hits while failing to protect a lead for the Angels in a loss at Washington. It was his second blown save this season in four chances. Frieri is 0-2 with a 9.35 ERA in 10 appearances this year. Hes allowed five home runs, a problem that plagued him last season when he was tagged for 11 homers and brieffly lost the closer job.dddddddddddd Scioscia said Frieri will be used at less stressful times, not in setup situations. The eighth-inning role will be filled by matchups. "To put him in setup role right now would defeat the purpose, because youre going to put him in a high-leverage situation," Scioscia said. "If youre ready for the eighth inning, youre ready for the ninth." "Mechanically hes fine," Scioscia said. "At times hes overthrowing, and when he does, hes missing some spots. Hes not a fine control guy, but he definitely knows what area he wants to throw the ball, and hes usually pretty good at getting it there." Smith signed a $15.75 million, three-year contract with the Angels this winter. In his eighth season, the 30-year-old right-hander is 1-0 with a 3.60 ERA, but 10 of his 11 appearances have been scoreless. He has three career saves in 450 games with the Mets, Indians and Angels.
