Tonight's game marks the end of the first half of the regular season and also the last time that the Wings will face the Flames for this season. Detroit has won all three previous meetings this season and will look to finish the job tonight.

Jimmy Howard will be in between the pipes for the Red Wings tonight and hopefully trying to lower that GAA that has been creeping up and up. On the opposite end is Miikka Kiprusoff, the guy who plays about 82.9%* of Calgary's games this season. Kiprusoff will have his hands full tonight against the NHL's highest scoring team, although they'll be without Valtteri Filppula who is out with a sore groin. Here are the lines for the Red Wings, via Ansar Khan of mlive.com:

Bertuzzi-Zetterberg-Holmstrom
Hudler-Franzen-Eaves
Draper-Helm-Tatar
Miller-Abdelkader-Mursak

Lidstrom-Stuart
Ericsson-Rafalski
Kronwall-Salei
