The Red Wings: Uniting fans of Canadian teams. - Derek Leung
Three games into their five-game Eastern Conference road trip and with just one win to show for it, the Flames take on the struggling Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena tonight.
The Red Wings have lost six games in a row and are missing starting goalie Jimmy Howard as well as six of their top nine forwards and defenceman Danny DeKeyser. That is ridiculous.
The Flames have lost two straight versus the Rangers and Bruins, but are perhaps the healthiest they've been all season with the exception of Dennis Wideman's broken hand.
So something interesting is probably going to happen tonight.
Projected Lines and Pairings:
Man, the Wings sure could use Jiri Hudler tonight.
T.J. Galiardi, Blair Jones and Chris Breen are healthy scratches for the Flames. Mikael Samuelsson is a healthy scratch for the Wings, somehow.
