The Red Wings come to Denver tonight to face the Avalanche and hopefully win the series in the final regular season matchup between these two rivals. Colorado has lost two in a row while Detroit has won three straight, hopefully both streaks will continue as they are going now. The Red Wings will look to continue success tonight after a great win in the shootout over Vancouver on Saturday. However, Matt Duchene and the Avalanche stand in their way.
Detroit is without Brad Stuart, Chris Osgood, Pavel Datsyuk, Dan Cleary, Mike Modano, and possibly Valtteri Filppula. Filppula is a gametime decision with a sore groin and if he can't go tonight, Tomas Tatar will fill in reports mlive.com's Ansar Khan.
Puck drops at 9:30 PM ET and the game will air on FS-Detroit. Comment away below and GO RED WINGS!
