Shanny's Plastic Hammer sits at the ready to lightly tap anybody who tries to crack any heads open like a coconut tonight. Detroit will be without Darren Helm thanks to a freak accident, but at least Gustav Nyquist will be back in the lineup.

Not to jump into too much of that hyperbole for which I'm famous, but this game is somewhat important for Detroit to win before the series heads back to the motor city on Sunday. The Wings need to get more traffic to the net and they need to hope that sane people are wearing the stripes tonight.

Hopefully any person who tries some "Webering" at the game accidentally concusses himself.

Let's go Red Wings.
