Red Wings getting some help back on defense against Tampa

The Detroit Red Wings are finally getting some good news on defense. For weeks it’s been injury after injury decimating the Red Wings’ defense corps. Regardless, they’ll be getting back the services of defenseman Trevor Daley when they take on the Tampa Bay Lightning. Daley has been out of the lineup since October 7, when he fell to the ice and took an L.A. Kings’ player’s knee to the head.
