[Game Thread] Wings vs. Ducks

The Detroit Red Wings (15-4-4) play their first of four straight home games tonight at the Joe against the Anaheim Ducks (14-8-3), who are making a strong push to try to pull even with the San Jose Sharks for the Pacific Division lead.

Chris Osgood will get the start in net tonight and J.S. Giguere will not be in the net due to a family matter that required him being in Montreal. He has always been trouble for the Wings so I don't mind that he won't be in goal tonight, but I wish it was under better circumstances for him. Jonas Hiller will be in net for Anaheim and he has never played against Detroit before. He was actually named the second star of the week.

Darren McCarty remains out with a groin injury. Both Tomas Holmstrom (back spasms) and Chris Chelios (broken leg) skated this morning. Homer hopes to play in Thursday's game and Chelios' return is not known yet.
