DETROIT - Here's what's coming up this weekend for the Detroit Red Wings, Detroit Pistons and Detroit Lions. 

Red Wings go to Montreal

The Red Wings (10-11-5) will have a shot at redemption this weekend in Montreal. The Canadiens won 6-3 Thursday night at Little Caesars Arena, pushing them past the Red Wings in the standings.

It was the Red Wings' 6th straight loss, although three of those defeats came in overtime. Coach Jeff Blashill's team was booed off the ice. 

"You can't give away easy goals in this league and expect to win. We better figure it out," Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill told reporters after the game. "The other thing I'd say is not enough guys with the real crazy commitment to winning."

Pistons have back-to-back road games

The Pistons (14-6) are sitting in 2nd place in the Eastern Conference after winning three straight. They knocked off the Boston Celtics (19-4) this week, 118-108, on the road before coming home to put up 131 points against the Phoenix Suns

"I thought it was very impressive to come out and play the way we did tonight after a huge win on Monday," Van Gundy said after the game. "We were really on it from the start defensively, and we were moving the ball and playing with energy on offense."

The Pistons now must play back-to-back road games this weekend -- first in Washington against the Wizards and then in Philadelphia against the 76ers.

Lions travel to Baltimore

After a disappointing loss on Thanksgiving Day, the Lions (6-5) will face the Baltimore Ravens (6-5) on the road. The Ravens have won two straight in their quest for the AFC North, but they'll need to rip off a few more wins if they have any hope of catching the 9-2 Pittsburgh Steelers. 

This week the Lions put safety Tavon Wilson on injured reserve with a shoulder problem. The good news for the Lions is they are 4-1 on the road this season.
