The Detroit Red Wings (29-8-3) face the Dallas Stars (23-14-3) for the first time this season. Despite being 11 points apart in the standings, these two teams are the best in the Western Conference standings.
While Tomas Holmstrom (knee) and Kirk Maltby (lower back) are still out with their respective injuries, Henrik Zetterberg says his back spasms have subsided and he expects to play Wednesday. Chris Osgood will get the start in net after Dominik Hasek played New Year's Eve.
The game starts at 7:30pm and will be shown on FSN Detroit. Go Wings!
