Key Match-ups

Slow start vs Quick start

The Wings have been off for a couple of days, while the Yotes have been playing. I'm afraid of them coming out with feet made of lead tonight. However, after the game against LA, perhaps a break bodes well for the team. I guess I don't feel comfortable either way. Dammit.

Gustav Nyquist vs Scoring slump

Nyquist needs to get it going. The lack of scoring from him is highly problematic to the team, especially since they've only managed to win one-goal games lately. They need a big, dominating win. Oddly enough, the last win they had like that was against Arizona.

Petr Mrazek vs Louis Domingue

Two young goalies who are playing hot lately. What isn't to love about that?
