[Game Thread] Wings vs. Sharks

Former Detroit Red Wings assistant coach Todd McLellan returns to Detroit for the first time after accepting the head coaching position at San Jose Sharks. While I don't harbor any resentment for Todd leaving us, I don't like that he has turned the previously good Sharks into the team with the most wins in the first 30 games ever. (25-3-2) Previously, the Sharks beat us in San Jose not even 24 hours after our game against Anaheim resulted in an overtime loss so tonight's contest is really the first chance for us to guage how we're doing in comparison to the top-ranked team in the Western Conference.

Ty Conklin will get the start in net for the Wings (20-6-4) after Chris Osgood suffered a groin strain and missed Wednesday's practice. Because the Wings are right up against the salary cap, the Wings are hoping Ozzie can be back-up for Conklin. Otherwise, the team will have to place Ozzie on long-term injured reserve or trade a player in order to make room under the cap.

The game starts at 7:30pm and will be shown on FS Detroit. You can check out the view from the opponent at Fear the Fin (a fellow SBN blog). Go Wings!
