(Sports Network) - The Toronto Maple Leafs will try to get back on track this evening, when they visit the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena.

The Maple Leafs have dropped a season-high six straight games (0-5-1) and are now tied for third in the Northeast Division with the Ottawa Senators.

Toronto is coming off Thursday's setback in Boston. Tim Thomas stopped 23 shots and three different Bruins scored in the third period, as Boston rallied for a 3-1 victory over the Leafs.

Jeff O'Neill scored the lone goal for Toronto and Jean-Sebastien Aubin stopped 23-of-26 shots faced for the Maple Leafs, who have lost three in a row on the road.

Toronto is 7-5-3 as the visiting club this season.

Meanwhile, the Red Wings have won two straight, having swept a home-and-home series with the St. Louis Blues. After winning, 5-1, in St. Louis on Tuesday, Detroit earned an overtime win in the return trip to Motown on Thursday. Pavel Datsyuk scored the game-winning goal with 1:37 left in OT as Detroit erased an early three-goal deficit to beat the Blues, 4-3.
