The Wings get back into action after a couple of days off against the Oilers, a team they outplayed last time which was not reflected on the scoresheet. The Wings, according to Khan(!), will be sporting a new look as they debut a few new lines:

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Holmstrom
Hudler-Filppula-Franzen
Bertuzzi-Modano-Cleary
Abdelkader-Helm-Miller

Lidstrom-Stuart
Rafalski-Ericsson
Salei-Kronwall

Howard

Game starts at 7:30 and here's hoping that no one is murdered before then (kidding). In all seriousness, if you weren't hanging around this morning, we've started a little something new around here where we want all of you to predict the score and who the player of the game will be. We're going to be keeping track of your guesses throughout the year, and whoever is correct the most will earn themselves a cool prize. Since this is new, we'll give you to puck drop to make your selection: once the game starts, no more guesses will be allowed. At the end of the game, we'll ask your opinion on who to nominate for player of the game, and we'll put a poll in the recap. However, if it's so ridiculously obvious who the best player for the Wings is (like if Jimmy pitches a 40 save shutout with many acrobatic saves) then we might forgo the poll. Either way, we'll have some fun with it. Let's get our chat on!
