For the first time this year, the Chicago Blackhawks (11-6-6) come to the Joe to take on the Detroit Red Wings (17-4-4). The only outing between these two teams this season ended in a 6-5 shootout win at the United Center.
Ty Conklin will get the start in net for Detroit. Kirk Maltby is out with a bone bruise from blocking a shot with his ankle in Thursday night's win. Tomas Holmstrom, who missed eight games from back spasms, will be in tonight.
While I will be at the game, please feel free to leave your thoughts on the action during what should be an exciting and close game. I will be sure to respond to your comments as soon as I return home!
The game starts at 7pm and will be shown on FS Detroit. Go Wings!
