Kevin Porter played for the Griffins last year!
I have never heard of Tom Kuhnhackl
Raccoons do indeed have knuckles
Red Wings versus guys I've heard of
I recognize more than half of the forwards on the Penguins roster. I expect the Red Wings to control play against the rest of them, so the key will be taking care of the guys who are really good, like Sidney Crosby.
Petr Mrazek versus forgetting his last start
Mrazek got away with a bad game on Sunday. He needs to do better in this one. The Wings kind of feel like they're on the precipice of a potential bad streak and I think a good performance by Mrazek might short-circuit that.
Let's Go Red Wings.
