Detroit has center Pavel Datsyuk back from a seven-game absence following a concussion, but the Red Wings are still without captain Henrik Zetterberg (back), goalie Jimmy Howard (sprained knee), defenseman Danny DeKeyser(shoulder) and three other forwards, including Johan Franzen and Justin Abdelkader (concussion protocols). Franzen left Detroit's game Sunday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning early in the second period after being hit in the face by defenseman Radko Gudas.

Rookie Tomas Jurco, Detroit's second-round pick in the 2011 NHL draft, made his NHL debut against the Lightning and the Red Wings have called up center Riley Sheahan from Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League to replace Franzen.

"Normally, and I say this all of the time, someone else gets an opportunity," coach Mike Babcock said. "We’re running out of guys to get opportunities."

Tonight, the banged up boys in red will look to top a rolling Anaheim Ducks team.

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.

Niklas Kronwall has been red hot all season long. Not only is he sixth in the NHL among defensemen with 22 points this season, but he also leads the team with a +12 rating. He also scored the lone goal in last night's game against Pittsburgh.

He's today's 'Hot Wing' by Buffalo Wild Wings!
