Game Thread: Red Wings v Avalanche

After a one-year hiatus because someone insisted on playing in a 95-year-old venue on a holiday, the Detroit Red Wings return to their traditional New Year's Eve slot, hosting the Colorado Avalanche at Joe Louis Arena.

Coming off a heart-wrenching 1-0 overtime loss at Columbus Monday night, the Wings will try to bounce back, sending Jimmy Howard back out to face the hot Craig Anderson.

Colorado defeated Detroit in their two previous meetings this season: 4-3 on October 17 in Detroit, and 3-1 a week later in Colorado.

Mile High Hockey has an alternative view of tonight's matchup. The game is on FS Detroit and Altitude. Comment away below!
