DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings are hurting. So are the Toronto Maple Leafs.
In the Red Wings' case, the pain emanates more from emotional distress. For the Maple Leafs, it's entirely physical.
As Toronto comes to Little Caesars Arena for a game against the Wings on Friday, Detroit will be completing a five-game homestand that could be defining the future for the team -- and it isn't painting a pretty picture.
