Detroit nears the end of their six-game homestand tonight as the Edmonton Oilers come to town fresh off a 6-3 loss in Boston last night. The Oilers have been getting the job done incredibly well so far this season. Their youth, speed, and tenacity will be a test for a Wings team that has played very well over the last two games.
Todd Bertuzzi is still out of the lineup feeling dizziness. Henrik Zetterberg is a game-time decision and nothing has come out about Patrick Eaves, although there's some expectation he'll be in the lineup. Hopefully we'll know before puck drop.
Comment away and Let's Go Red Wings!
