The Detroit Red Wings (23-6-4) take on the Nashville Predators (16-14-3) for the first time this season, which is surprising considering the two teams will play six games against one another this season. The last time these two teams played last year ended in a 4-2 series win over the Predators in the first round of the postseason. Tonight's game is the first of two on the road for the Wings.
Goaltender Ty Conklin should get the start in goal as it sounds like Chris Osgood's groin is still bothering him, but not enough to start in net. Conklin has won the last three straight for Detroit and earned a 1.67 GAA during that period.
Please stop by and leave a comment or two during the game. I know I will be around!
The game starts at 8pm and will be shown on FS Detroit. Go Wings!
