Jimmy Howard was fantastic tonight, which is becoming somewhat of a theme as of late, stopping all 22 shots that came his way. After a scoreless first, Jakub Kindl scored on a shot that trickled through Dubnyk's five-hole then Cory Emmerton ripped one top left corner to put the Wings up 2-0. Justin Abdelkader added the empty-netter with 1:10 left to seal the deal for the Wings!

Thanks for tuning in to our Game Day Blog... Tune in Saturday when we head to Columbus!

Coach Babcock talks to the team before today’s skate.

"They have real good specialty teams and significant skill level, so we got to not worry about them, we got to worry about the way we play… got to get back to the details of our game without the puck and continue to be hard on the other team's goal and D.”
- Mike Babcock

"I think we’ve been solid in the back. We’ve divided up the ice-time a little more with this six D here and I think as a D unit we’ve all been playing better. Me and Kronner work well together and that’s partly why it’s been working well for me.”
- Jonathan Ericsson

Ian White will again be a healthy scratch tonight.

"We’ve been playing pretty solid defensively, not letting in too many goals, so it's tough to change the defense up… I'm confident I can contribute. I'm sure, from speaking with them, they made it clear they want to keep me around”
- Ian White



Kent Huskins is expected to be a healthy scratch tonight.

"We enjoy playing on the same line with each other, and I know we enjoy it off of the ice hanging around the locker room. Both (Tatar and Andersson) are great people and I just enjoy playing with them."
- Patrick Eaves



Valtteri Filppula is out tonight with an upper-body injury.
"They see a little bit of something with the AC (joint), nothing major."
- Joakim Andersson

"He’s very easy to play with, which is awesome. He’s a big man that can skate and he’s responsible defensively. That makes it really easy to play with, and then his skill level is awesome."
- Patrick Eaves on Joakim Andersson

Continue To Play Well Defensively
- The Red Wings are getting solid goaltending plus they're playing well in front of their netminders, allowing just 5 goals in their last 4 games. Detroit hasn't allowed a goal in the first two periods of their last four games, and they need to try to repeat that tonight and limit the fresh legs of Edmonton early.

Find Ways To Score - The last four games that the Red Wings have played in were decided by just one goal. They were all 2-1 games. Simply put, Detroit needs to find the back of the net. Bear down on scoring chances and deliver on the Power Play when they get the opportunity.

Limit Edmonton's Speed - The Oilers are a fast team and they generate their speed in the neutral zone. Take away their time and space. Try not to get into a track meet with them, because a north-south game can quickly turn south against a team like Edmonton.
