On The Road Again

The Detroit Red Wings (20-10-1) take on the Edmonton Oilers (14-15-3) tonight at 9:30 pm in the first of their 3 game road trip.

Quick Notes:

  • The Wings have won 11 of their last 14 games played
  • The Oilers are 9-5-2 at home and the Red Wings have a  7-8-0 away record
  • Detroit has won the last seven straight against Edmonton
  • The Red Wings shut out the Oilers 3-0 when the two teams met last month at the Joe
  • Miller, who scored 2 goals on Saturday night, got the GWG last meeting
  • Jimmy Howard will start in net for Detroit (19-7-1) and Nikolai Khabibulin (10-7-3) for Edmonton
  • Lines are supposed to stay the same… and I like em. Fire.
  • Eaves, Mursak, Conner are recovering
All the Wings have been contributing to the team’s success as of late. The 3rd and 4th lines and the defensemen have all been producing goals, which really demonstrates the team’s depth. The Oilers have been in a bit of a slump but the Wings have to keep their guard up… the barely-legal line is killer. Jordan Eberle and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins both have 33 points in 32 games this season, and Taylor Hall has 21 points in 24 games.
Here’s a blast from the past to get ya pumped:

Let’s Go Wings!
