Red Wings: 9-3-1
Oilers : 4-7-2
1. The Edmonton Sun posted a game preview article that featured this as the intro: “Welcome to Detroit, where the forecast, as always, is muggy, with a chance of murder. When you’re trying to breathe a little life back into your year, this is not the place to visit. And not just because they use more white chalk at crime scenes than they ever did in the schools.” There's nothing like a good old knee-slapping murder joke to introduce an article about hockey. I hope the Wings live up to their billing in the article and dominate Edmonton like they did last week.
2. Mike Babcock was shuffling lines in practice yesterday. Will changing things up help spark things?
3. Brian Rafalski's return made an immediate impact on Monday. How will he look in his second game back?
