1. Can Valtteri Filppula spark Z? I still maintain that he’s not 100%, but I guess that could just be Todd Bertuzzi’s aura dragging him down. Maybe getting some time away from Bert will help get Z’s offense going.
2. In the event that the Wings manage to get a lead, will they be able to hang onto it?
3. What percentage of the game will the Wings bother to play tonight? I think I’m going to make this like the Lidstrom question earlier this season and post it in every GP until I see a 100% effort.
4. Can Jimmy Howard get those rebounds under control? They’ve slowly become an issue again since the Olympic break.
