Having given up home ice advantage in Sunday's 4-2 loss, the Detroit Red Wings will try to keep even with the Phoenix Coyotes in Game 4 of the Western Conference Quarterfinal at Joe Louis Arena.

That loss featured another sloppy defensive effort by the Red Wings. And while there seems to be no move by Mike Babcock to swap Jimmy Howard for Chris Osgood, there has to be some question as to if Howard can win a game by himself (not that he's lost a game by himself). And with Wojtek Wolski scoring in all three games, the Wings need to figure out a solution for the mid-season acquisition.

The good news for the Red Wings: Shane Doan will not play tonight, due to one of those mysterious "upper body injuries."

Game time is 6:30 pm ET on Fox Sports Detroit, Fox Sports Arizona, and TSN (which means if you live in the US, you'll have to have Center Ice or GameCenter outside the two markets). Comment away below.
