Babcock
"Howie has worked hard and the organization has confidence in him. It's important for us. We need good goaltending. Just how much parity there is, we need him each and every night and he's been excellent for us."
- Mike Babcock

Damien Brunner will return to the lineup tonight after battling a lower-body injury, which has resulted in some line shuffling for tonight.

"We put Mule in (at center). We’re trying to get Filppula to help us out too, so we moved him to the (third line) and maybe they can generate some offense there with Brunner back."
- Mike Babcock


Brendan Smith will be back in the lineup tonight after being a healthy scratch Sunday.

Compete Hard
- Detroit worked hard against St. Louis. They need to be at that same level to beat the Sharks, who have been one of the hottest teams in the NHL of late.

Score Goals - The Red Wings have played well defensively lately, but they've had a tough time scoring. Detroit needs to find ways to score tonight; get people to the front of the net, get second and third opportunities, and connect on the Power Play.

Need Solid Goalkeeping - Jimmy Howard has been very good for the Wings. He needs to continue his fine play again tonight against a potent Sharks offense.

After a tough 1-0 loss to St. Louis on Sunday, Detroit looks to get back on track Thursday night when they host the San Jose Sharks, who have had their share of struggles on the road.

"You always want to play well at home," center Valtteri Filppula told the team's official website. "Definitely would be a good start to get a home win and then go on the road and hopefully get some confidence."

The Red Wings begin a four-game trip Friday against Chicago before finishing up with three of their last four at home.

"It's been a tough month," defenseman Niklas Kronwall said. "Hopefully we can kind of reset everything and come back more energized because we're coming down to the wire here and it's going to be so tight all the way through."

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.

Get Off to a Good Start
- These aternoon games are tough on teams travelling back through different time zones. The team coming back usually tend sto start slow. The Wings need to focus and be ready to play from the opening face off.

Be Aware of the Long Bomb Pass - St. Louis has been successful with this strategy against Detroit this season, especially in the season opener. The Wings' defensemen have to be conscious of this play throughout the game.

Be Strong on the Power Play - The Blues have been very good on the penalty kill against Detroit this year. The Wings have to get shots to the net, get rebounds, and crowd the front of the goal.
