The Wings look to add to their win streak against the winless Stars Tuesday night in Dallas. The Stars have only scored three goals in two games so far this season, but don’t expect that trend to continue. There’s plenty of firepower on this Stars team and I think a home game after three days of rest would be the perfect time for them to open the flood gates. Oh, and Ben Bishop is back after taking a puck to the mask in the Stars season-opener.

The Wings, meanwhile, have played alright in their first two games. It’s hard to complain about coming away with four points, but the defense needs to tighten up, especially around the crease. Jimmy Howard’s been superb so far, but it’s about time the rest of the team gave him a hand. Hopefully they deliver tonight.

There was some confusion with Khan’s Tweet regarding the powerplay units. Sheahan and Nielsen are rotating into that fifth spot on the second unit, not Larkin. It seems they’re keeping that spot open in the event that Athanasiou signs.
