After a scoreless first, the Wings got two goals in the second, the first courtesy of Johan Franzen's breakaway beauty, the second on a good bounce off Giguere's backside from a Kronwall slapshot. With a 2-0 lead headed into the third, Jimmy Howard again stood on his head for 60 minutes, including a handful of spectacular saves in the third period. After giving up a late goal with just 1:30 left, the Red Wings held on for a 2-1 win over the Avalanche!

Babcock
"I think (Abdelkader) has gotten way better as of late...He's a worker, honest, two-way guy...In the last five games, we're 3-1-1 and things are going all right for our team, so let's just keep going here.”
- Mike Babcock

"I've just kept doing all the small things, keep shooting, putting the puck on net and hope for some breaks.”
- Justin Abdelkader

Howard

Jimmy Howard will get the nod in net.


"They’re really not all that far off. They’re all grouped together from fourth all the way to last, so it’s tight and going to continue to be that way all the way to the end of the season. You just have to find a way every single night to get points.”
- Jimmy Howard

Score Goals
- The Wings have scored just 4 goals in their last 3 games; they need to create scoring chances and make the best of them when they occur.

Play Well Defensively - The team has been consistent and good defensively over the past 5 games. Don't change that and continue to play tight D all-around.

Slow Down the Avs - Colorado is a fast, explosive team. The Wings must take away their time and space, especially in the neutral zone, which is where they generate most of their speed.

Babcock
"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.

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.
