The Wings return home after a west coast road trip that was more nightmarish than California Dreamin'. The Wings lost their last 3 games, blowing 2 third-period leads in games against the Ducks and Coyotes. The only team the Wings beat on that trip was the Kings, tonight's opponent.
First games back from a road trip are always tough to predict, but I think the Wings come out with some fire in their bellies after the Debacle in the Desert. There are a number of H2H2'ers at the game (Hi Casey!), so here's hoping they see a great game and a Wings win.
No news on the injury front as Brian Rafalski and Patrick Eaves are both still sidelined with their issues. Drew Miller is the healty scratch and will watch the game from the Leino Lounge.
This is the last game before H2H2, and for those attending, it's going to be a great time. Keep it classy!
