Detroit comes into tonight's game on a 5-game win streak. The last team to beat them? Yup, Edmonton back on March 19. Edmonton has taken all three games from Detroit this season so the Red Wings are looking to avoid the sweep at the hands of the NHL's worst team. Odd how things work isn't it?

Dan Cleary will be out of the line-up tonight and Derek Meech will take his spot at forward, but on the fourth line. Jimmy Howard will start his 23rd consecutive game in net while Jeff Deslauriers gets the start for Edmonton.

Puck drops at 7:30 p.m. ET and the game airs on FS-Detroit. Comment away below and as always, GO WINGS!
