I apologize for the horrible joke. Those responsible have been sacked.

Copy-and-pasting the same things from the last 10 or so games, but the Wings should really try very hard to win this game against a desperate opponent. Washington got embarrassed in Chicago last night and will obviously be trying very hard to get a victory for themselves. Braden Holtby gets his 2nd start of the season for Washington.

Washington is a team middling in just about every statistical category in the league. Their 5-on-5 GF/GA ratio is 0.99; their special teams Bowman Index is 38 (Detroit's is 40). They don't outshoot their opponents and have a team goal differential of -12.

... and just about none of that matters over a one-game sample size like we'll see tonight.

Comment away and let's go Red Wings.
