[Game Thread] Wings vs. Lightning

After a disappointing 7-6 loss to Pittsburgh in overtime on Tuesday night, the Detroit Red Wings hope to turn things around with a win tonight against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Chris Osgood will get the start in net despite allowing seven goals against Pittsburgh since the Wings' defense was more to blame than anything else. Plus, Osgood has a pretty good record against Tampa.

Against the Lightning, though, Osgood has yet to be beaten, going 16-0-0 with a 1.80 goals-against average and three shutouts in 18 appearances. Though he has not played in Tampa since Dec. 17, 2005, he's won all seven starts there, recording a 2.28 GAA.

In the last five games against Detroit, Tampa Bay has gone 1-3-0 scoring just nine goals.

Despite this being a road game, I will be unable to comment during the game. I have a ton of group projects due for classes in the next week or so and I have two group meetings tonight sadly. But please feel free to leave your own comments and I'll respond to them once I get back!

The game starts at 7:30pm and will be shown on FSN Detroit.
