So this is a big game. I read yesterday that somebody said "Quite literally, any chance the Wings have of getting past the first round of the playoffs rests on winning tomorrow night."
Now I don't feel quite that strongly, but that's mostly because I have a grasp on what "literally" means and I'm a grown man who doesn't use tweenage hyperbole. But, this is a pretty big game. The Red Wings are basically back up to strength and are looking to keep their 4th place spot in the conference against the team looking to take it. It's very likely this is a preview to your first round matchup and both teams are going to want to see what the other team has to offer.
Comment away and let's go Red Wings.
