Box score

Game notes: The Red Wings return to the ice following the NHL's Christmas break. They face a Pittsburgh Penguins squad that may have one eye focused on the upcoming 2023 NHL Winter Classic at Fenway Park in Boston against the Boston Bruins on Jan. 2nd. A common theme of Wings-Pens matchups for nearly 15 seasons has been stopping forward Sidney Crosby. Entering Wednesday's matchup, Crosby leads the Pens in points with 43 and has scored five points in his last five games.
