Dallas hosts the Wings tonight and has the chance to win the season series. You can bet your bottom dollar the Wings have different plans in mind, even without the services of Pavel Datsyuk, Dan Cleary and former Star Mike Modano.
Last time out against the Stars, the Wings were poised for a win but Brendan Morrow tied the game late in the third and Loui Eriksson won the game in overtime, delaying win #400 for Chris Osgood. The Wings will need to play the full 60 minutes tonight instead of pulling a page out of the 2009-2010 team's book.
Jimmy Howard will start in net for the Red Wings opposite Kari Lehtonen. Both goalies will be tested often but which will prevail?
