Not too much needed to set this one up. The Red Wings won another OT thriller on a long pass from Nyquist to Athanasiou. Tonight they will take on those same Hurricanes. It is very possible that Niklas Kronwall will slot back into the lineup in place of Dan Renouf but for now I am leaving Renouf in the lineup (partly in hopes that the Wings and Kronwall decide to shut it down for the last handful of games this season so his knees can get a head start on their off season rest). Expect Tomas Nosek to return to the lineup as well.

Really good news as well that Eddie Lack is reported to have feeling in all of his extremities after a scary looking collision with Athanasiou last night on the OT winner.
