E. Staal

The Wings are wary of the talent the Canes have up front with the Staal brothers.


"Being their home opener, I expect them to come out hard, be aggressive on their forecheck and pinching their (defense), so we’re going to have to be moving the puck well early on."
- Daniel Alfredsson

Weiss
"They’re both big and strong and have a lot of skill. They’re good at both ends of the ice. You got to work and earn your ice against them and be aware of them defensively. Try to make them play in their zone as much as possible."
- Stephen Weiss

"I know Eric real well, he’s a good player, and then you add Semin into the mix. He’s a world-class talent. He can pass the puck and shoot the puck, big body. It’s a good group."
- Mike Babcock

Stay Out of Box - The PK was outstanding last game at 7-for-7, but you can't spend that much time down a man.

Weather the Storm - It's the Hurricanes' home opener. The building will be alive. The first 10 minutes are critical to a good start.

Play Two Ways - Carolina's top two lines can put the puck in the net. The Wings forwards need to help back, the D-Men need to be smart, and Howie has to play well.

It may take fans some time to get used to seeing Detroit in the Eastern Conference, but the Red Wings wasted little time acclimating themselves by claiming a 2-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres in their season opener on Wednesday. They'll go for two in a row by serving as the visitor in Carolina's opening game, and the Hurricanes figure to have PNC Arena rocking.

Welcome to the Detroit Red Wings Game Day Blog, where you can get behind-the-scenes information, thoughts from players and staff, and up-to-date news on anything and everything Red Wings on game day.

You can tune in to tonight's 7:00 PM ET game on Fox Sports Detroit or listen in with Ken Kal on AM1270.
