Time:

7 PM ET

TV: Versus

Detroit comes into tonight's game following an ugly loss to the LA Kings by a score of 3-2. It wasn't a beatdown that made it ugly but that the Red Wings lost an early two goal lead and played flat for two of the three periods of the game. The Wings get some good news as Niklas Kronwall returns to the line-up tonight against the Coyotes after missing over two months of action as a result of a dirty Georges Laraque hit.

The big story tonight will be how the Wings can rebound from that game and if they can play solid hockey for 60 minutes, instead of 20.

Game will air on Versus at 7:00 PM ET and as always, GO WINGS!
