Key Match-ups

Special Teams

The Red Wings power-play continues to be impotent, and now would be a great time to find chemistry with players getting healthy, and returning to the lineup. Not having players like Pavel Datsyuk, or Mike Green has affected the efficiency on the man advantage. The Leafs penalty-kill is in the bottom-10, so this is a great chance to pot some goals on the PP.

Dylan Larkin vs. Everyone

Larkin had a great first-career game against the Leafs. I expect the 19-year-old breakout rookie to continue his great play tonight coming off of two back-to-back game-winning goals. Plus, its fun to watch our top prospect perform well against Mike Babcock. Just because.

Let's Go Red Wings!!!
