It's a welcome-back-to-Detroit night for the Blackhawks and a welcome-back-to-hockey night for the Red Wings and their fans, who have had nothing but a disappointing shootout loss to the Lightning to keep them occupied since Sunday. Chicago isn't exactly tearing up the West like they should be, but they're a very good team with forward depth and a good defensive scheme. Corey Crawford isn't actually laughably terrible either (although he is overrated).

I want Tomas Jurco to find the back of the net tonight. He's had plenty of time off to add scoring to the list of things he's been doing well this season.

Also I won't lie, I'm going to be keeping at least half an eye on Grand Rapids tonight because of Anthony Mantha.

Have fun in the comments and let's go Red Wings.
