Gustav Nyquist continues to dazzle, and extended his point streak to eight games after scoring yet another goal last night. Nyquist now has 26 goals this season, and an NHL-best 21 goals since January 20th.

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

Justin Abdelkader is likely to return tonight, playing his first game since suffering a leg laceration in Chicago, March 16th.

Darren Helm dinged up his shoulder a little bit last night,
but should be good to go tonight.

Have Skating Legs Early - Both teams played on the road last night, so today is a quick turn around. The team that starts on time will have an edge.

Try to Contain Stamkos - Limit his time and space, but that's easier said than done. He is a game-changer and a scoring machine so the Wings will have to do their best to shut him down.

Solid Goalkeeping - Jimmy Howard made big saves last night. Jonas Gustavsson will have to do the same today.

After a big road win last night in Toronto, Detroit starts a three-game homestand tonight before finishing with four of five on the road. The Red Wings have more road wins (19) than home wins (15).

"This is the playoffs for us, we know what situation we're in," defenseman Jakub Kindl told Mlive.com. "We've just got to do the little things. We've got to compete; we can't turn the puck over, just have to play a simple game."

Goalie Jonas Gustavsson will start for the first time since March 7, the third time since Feb. 3. Prior to Saturday, Jimmy Howard had lost three in a row after winning four of five.

"I thought our goaltender was good; he made some huge saves," Mike Babcock said. "It's important he gets a game off tomorrow and [Jonas] comes in just to give him a breather."

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.

You can watch tonight's 5:00 PM matchup on Fox Sports Detroit, or listen in with Ken Kal and Paul Woods on 97.1 The Ticket and AM 1270.
