The Wings try for the Alberta sweep as they travel into Calgary the night after downing the Oilers. No Jurco for the Wings tonight as he missed the entire third period with back spasms last night. That means fresh meat in the lineup to take on a Calgary team with a strong +10 goal differential and a pretty good record, but in a familiar position where they're good enough to not be awful but still too inconsistent to be truly good.

The Flames have some talented kids on their roster and, more importantly, they have Jiri Hudler. I know it was time for him to go, but I loved our little Scuttles and thanks to him I will never forget the stairs, buddeh.

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