After winning three in a row, Detroit is now in danger of losing three in a row and dropping to where they'd have more losses than wins in a division that is not kind to teams who waste opportunities to gain points. The Wings are beaten the hell up and the Wild are more or less healthy.

Both teams have had time off, so fatigue shouldn't be an issue. Minnesota won't play again until Thursday after this, but I don't expect that to make a difference one way or another. Detroit needs a win.

It's a live thread. Anything goes unless it doesn't.

Let's go Red Wings!
