Detroit looks to stay successful on their western Canada road trip with a visit to Edmonton for a Saturday tilt against the Edmonton Oilers. This squad did us a favor on Thursday by beating up on the Chicago Blackhawks 8-4 in Sam Gagner's 8-point night. Without Jimmy Howard in net, Detroit's going to be looking to avoid the same fate.

The same effort put forth against Edmonton as they had against Vancouver on Thursday should yield positive results. They're going to have to play tight and watch out for the speedy counterattack. Pressure Edmonton's defense and get shots on net.

Comment away and let's go Red Wings.
