Between the early start of the game and the fact the Wild are the Wings' opponent, this has all the makings of a dynamite, exciting contest. Jimmy Howard takes the reins back for the Wings, and as far as I could tell, there are no changes to the Wings lineup for the game today.

Big news today is that Todd Bertuzzi is playing in game number 1000, and the Wings are flying out his wife and 2 kids to St Paul for the occasion. Congratulations, Todd. Happy Hockey Day in America to my American friends. Let's get our chat on!
