The Red Wings head to Tampa Bay to take on Steven Stamkos, Martin St. Louis, Vincent Lacavalier and the Lightning. The Lightning's GM is a familiar face to Red Wings' fans and it will be good to see him and hear his name so frequently during the broadcast.

The Red Wings are coming off a home-and-home sweep in convincing fashion of the Boston Bruins. The Wings got four goals (two each game) from Todd Bertuzzi and the offense was clicking against a good Bruins squad. That will have to continue tonight as they face an even better Lightning team. Brad Stuart will return to the line-up tonight and help the defense out in his first game since January 7th. Ruslan Salei will sit out so tonight as Jakub Kindl will play. Expect the Lightning (with the last change at home) to try and exploit the rookie Kindl. The Red Wings will have to be conscious of match-ups tonight against a very deep Tampa Bay team.
