Detroit looks to win their 2nd straight road game as they head into Phoenix on Thursday night for a tussle with a Coyotes team that got their asses kicked 6-2 by the Anaheim Ducks last night. The Five For Howling pregame writeup game plan is to hope that the Red Wings watched that shitshow and won't take the Coyotes seriously.

Unfortunately, that's an actual concern. If the Wings play their game, the Coyotes don't stand a chance. The good news is that the garbage ice in Dallas on Tuesday might have helped them get prepared for another southern surface (although I believe the Phoenix ice is better than Dallas').

Game style prediction: If the game is exciting, the Wings win.

Comment away and let's go Red Wings.
