The Wings haven't exactly righted the ship. They ended a three-game losing streak by stealing two points out of Chicago on Wednesday night, but they haven't played a game where they've really dominated and gotten a wire-to-wire win in a bit. This would be a good night to do it.
The Stars are missing their leading scorer. They're having goaltender problems. Their defense is a mess. This is a team the Red Wings should be able to jump on. If the Stars are playing their game, it's not going to be an easy game, but Detroit should be able to dictate the outcome.
The biggest thing I'm looking for is for the fourth line to have a good night. Facing up the top three, I think the Wings have an advantage, but Dallas has decent depth down low. I'm also looking for Riley Sheahan to have a good night. He's been too quiet lately.
Have fun in the comments and let's go Red Wings.
