"The one thing about a team in our situation, every night's a real contest, we understand that totally.”
- Mike Babcock

The Red Wings will face Colorado for the first time this season tonight when the Avalanche pay visit to the The Joe, a place filled with years of history between the two teams. The Avs enter the week at No. 13 in the Western Conference standings, but still only four points behind the Red Wings, who currently sit in the final playoff spot with 24 points.

“They’re fast, they’re extremely quick up front." said Jimmy Howard. "You just have to find a way every single night to get points.” The light-scoring Avs started slow this season. And despite a 5-4-3 record in February, the owners of the third worst goal-differential (-10) in the West are 1-1-3 in their last five games.

Tomas Tatar scored early in the third to put Detroit up 1-0, but Patrick Kane scored for the Hawks with 2:02 left and then again in a shootout to win it for Chicago. For 65 minutes, today's game against the Blackhawks had fans on the edge of their seats. It was uptempo, fast-paced, and filled with big hits and big saves from both teams. Jimmy Howard was a brick wall today, making one acrobatic save after another, with fans chanting "How-ard, How-ard!" throughout the game. The Wings took the paint off the crossbar a few times, but Corey Crawford was simply outstanding, and the Wings just couldn't put one more past him. The Wings earned one point to move into sixth in the West.

Thanks for tuning in to our Game Day Blog...
We'll see you on Tuesday when we take on the Avalanche at The Joe!

Storm Out of the Gate
- Get the crowd behind the team as early as possible. Show up early and put the pedal to the metal!

Limit Turnovers - Chicago, like most NHL teams, will make you pay dearly if you turn the puck over.

Continue to Get Pucks on Net - When you get a scoring chance, bear down and make it count.
