The Tampa Bay Lightning come to town as the Red Wings hope to continue recent success. Jimmy Howard is expected to start in net for the Red Wings tonight and will have to be on top of his game as the Wings are without Jonathan Ericsson following his knee injury. Grand Rapids' D Doug Janik was called up and will fill the spot of Ericsson.
The Lightning are powered by Vinny Lecavlier, Steven Stamkos, Victor Hedman and a host of other young stars. Detroit should have a tough test at hand against a talented offense.
Unfortunately, I won't be able to comment in the thread because of prior commitments but feel free to join in. Raw Charge is the Lightning affiliate.
