If familiarity breeds contempt, there should be animosity aplenty on Thursday when the Montreal Canadiens and the Detroit Red Wings meet at Little Caesars Arena.

ABOUT THE CANADIENS (11-12-3): David Schlemko made his debut with the team on Wednesday, registering two shots in 15 minutes, 54 seconds of ice time. The 30-year-old defenseman, who was acquired from Vegas on June 22 after being selected from San Jose’s roster in the expansion draft a day earlier, had been sidelined since suffering a hand injury during training camp that required surgery. Drouin on Wednesday became the first Canadien to convert a penalty-shot attempt since Dale Weise on Nov. 13, 2014.

ABOUT THE RED WINGS (10-10-5): Jimmy Howard has struggled a bit of late, allowing four goals in three of his last four starts after yielding that amount just once in his first 15 outings. The 33-year-old goaltender has gone 0-2-2 during his slump, with his last victory coming on Nov. 17 against Buffalo. Anthony Mantha leads the team with 11 goals but has tallied just once in his last six contests.

Oddsmakers opened the Red Wings as -115-moneyline favorites versus the Canadiens, while the game’s total opened at 5.5.

The Detroit Red Wings hope to salvage the finale of their three-game homestand and halt a four-game winless streak at Little Caesars Arena – and a five-game overall skid (0-2-3) – when they begin a home-and-home series against the Original Six-rival Montreal Canadiens on Thursday. The Red Wings are 0-2-2 in their last four games in Motown and 0-1-1 during their current string at home after Tuesday’s 4-1 loss to Los Angeles.

Defenseman Mike Green ranks third on the team with 18 points and halted a five-game drought by scoring Detroit’s lone goal against the Kings. Montreal will be playing its only road contest during an nine-game span and third in a stretch of 17 matches. The Canadiens edged Ottawa 2-1 on Wednesday to complete a perfect three-game homestand after losing three straight at Bell Centre (0-2-1) and five in a row overall (0-3-2). Jonathan Drouin, who leads Montreal with 17 points, has collected two goals and two assists over his last three contests after tallying in his second consecutive game on Wednesday.

Detroit lost its last outing, a 4-1 result against the Kings on November 28. Bettors who backed the Kings at -107 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

In their last action, Montreal was a 2-1 winner at home against the Senators. Bettors on Montreal at -138 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (3) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
