No idea what the lineup is so far. Abdelkader is back from his suspension and Cleary is a maybe for feeling well enough after being boarded in game five. Samuelsson scored a goal, but most think Bertuzzi actually looked better. There's also a big question mark right now surrounding whether Babcock makes a change on defense after a shaky outing by Brian Lashoff.

It's win or stay home tonight in Detroit as the Wings are down to having zero room for error again. I don't have anything inspirational to say and it wouldn't matter anyway because the Wings aren't reading this.

Or maybe they are...?

Hey if you're reading this, win tonight.
