Life isn't fair. The Habs have the same record as the Wings in the last ten games. Detroit sits four points back of Montreal for the lead in the Atlantic with one game in hand. This one isn't going to solve the spacing at the top of the division, but it's as big a game as the Wings are going to face at this time of year and they are in bad need of a convincing win against a team this high in the standings.

Montreal has been riding Carey Price hard all season and Price has continually responded with amazing performance. Even the best have bad nights. I'd like to see the Wings treat Price to one of those.

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