Among the things we probably didn’t think we’d see before the season would be the Detroit Red Wings and Anaheim Ducks meeting in Week 2 with both teams sporting 2-0-0 records. But that’s exactly what’s happening tonight when the Red Wings host the Ducks.

The Red Wings have jumped out to their surprising start in large part due to the super line they’ve put together of Dylan Larkin between Tyler Bertuzzi and Anthony Mantha, a player who is looking every bit another one of those classic Red Wing overripe prospects who benefitted from an extended stay in the minors. The Ducks, on the other hand, are much like the Red Wings in that they’re smack-dab in the middle of a rebuild, but this one seems to be more on the fly.
