Detroit looks to rebound from a long break and an embarrassing loss to Mike Cammalleri's previous team with a strong performance against another Canadian foe and Mike Cammalleri's current team. Calgary is currently in the middle of a three-way tie at 52 standings points which has them officially in 11th place. Despite this seeming like a natural fit for them, their GM has told the fans that they're going to "go for it" and he's made several minimally important moves to trick people into believing that this team isn't going to be a deadline seller.

The next couple of weeks could go a long way toward deciding whether Jarome Iginla remains in Calgary. Let's start that journey off for them with a piece of evidence that points to "no".

Comment away and let's go Red Wings.
