Score - The Red Wings need to generate offense; they've got just 3 goals in their 3 past games. Toronto has a tendency to give up a lot of shots, so the Wings will have to take advantage of that and find the back of the net.

Start Fast - Get the crowd behind you. You're back home in an Original 6 matchup and the crowd will be loud. Come out strong and feed off of them.

Just Win, Baby - Time is running out. There's only 15 games left. Detroit needs to get a winning streak going. Get the first one tonight then build on it.

To call the Red Wings banged up would be an understatement. If forwards Todd Bertuzzi (lower body) and Justin Abdelkader (lower body) can't play against Toronto, the Red Wings will be without 11 players.

Forward Landon Ferraro was the latest call-up from Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League when he was recalled Monday in lieu of Abdelkader's injury in the Chicago game.

If Abdelkader can't play, enter Ferraro into the lineup to further turn Detroit into Grand Rapids East.

"Abby got dinged up in the third period [Sunday] night," Red Ken Holland said. "He wasn't able to finish the game. We’re going to assess him here and see how [Monday] goes. We're hoping he's ready to go. We'll know after the morning skate."

Nevertheless, the Wings keep plugging away and remain in the hunt for their 23rd straight playoff appearance. Two big points tonight would help.

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 watch tonight's 7:30 PM matchup on Fox Sports Detroit, or listen in with Ken Kal and Paul Woods on 97.1 The Ticket or AM1270.
