Winless Red Wings face rugged test at Lightning

TAMPA, Fla. -- While the Tampa Bay Lightning wait for All-Stars Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov to find an early-season groove, they have others who can carry the load.

The Detroit Red Wings, meanwhile, are just trying to find any kind of a spark to get their season moving in the right direction as they enter Thursday's game in Tampa.

Last season, the Lightning bolted to the top of the standings behind the play of Stamkos and Kucherov -- Stamkos had 24 points in October while Kucherov had 13 goals. In the opening four games this season, the duo has combined for just one goal and four assists.
