PREDICTION: Red Wings host Wild for Hockeytown Halloween Saturday night

DETROIT– There will be plenty of trick-or-treating at Little Caesars Arena on Saturday night when the Detroit Red Wings host the Minnesota Wild for a special Hockeytown Halloween game.

The puck drop between Detroit (3-2-2; 8 points) and Minnesota (3-3-1; 7 points) is scheduled for 7 p.m., with broadcast coverage on Bally Sports Detroit and the Red Wings Radio Network ( 97.1 The Ticket in Detroit).

Fans are encouraged to wear their costumes for an arena-wide costume contest and can enjoy a variety of Halloween-themed activities in the Via lobby, including face painting, candy giveaways and opportunities to photos with itinerant character actors. Halloween-specific drink items will also be sold.

While there will be a chilling atmosphere in the room, for Red Wings head coach Derek Lalonde, Saturday’s game against the visiting Wild is an opportunity to “find that consistency.”

“We’ve shown signs that we can compete with the best in the league,” Lalonde said. “Now, it’s just having that formula for an entire game.”

When reflecting on Thursday’s 5-1 loss to the Boston Bruins, Lalonde said the final result was hard to digest.

“It got away from us on special teams, which makes the result very frustrating,” Lalonde said. “That said, we’re still trying to develop an identity and a formula where we can be successful. You’ve seen that over two periods.”
