As the shootout woes continue for the Red Wings, it has been the polar opposite for the New York Islanders. The Isles come to town with a perfect 9-0 record in overtime with six of those being won in a shootout. In contrast, the Red Wings have dropped their past four games, three of which ended in a shootout. The good news is, forward Johan Franzen, who missed Tuesday night's 1-0 loss against the Columbus Blue Jackets due to an illness, expects to play against the Islanders.

“I’ve just been battling flus, stomach flus, regular flus, for the last few weeks,” said Franzen, “I just haven’t been able to get healthy. Beginning of this week I just felt really, really awful, like no energy, nothing. I figured I needed a couple days just to get healthy.”

Having the Mule back in the lineup playing with Sheahan and Tatar should spark some offense for Detroit after only scoring four goals in the past four games. Nonetheless, Detroit will look to put an end to their recent struggles tonight against the New York Islanders with Jimmy Howard between the pipes.

Jimmy Howard was stellar tonight, stopping all 29 shots he faced in regulation and overtime, but Detroit couldn't put one past Goalie Bob as we earned just one point in a 1-0 shootout loss.

Thanks for tuning into our Gameday Blog...we'll see you Friday when the Islanders come to town!

Niklas Kronwall
scored the lone goal for the Red Wings as they fell 4-1 against the Maple Leafs Saturday night. Kronwall's blast put the Red Wings up 1-0 on the power-play, continuing their success with the man-advantage (22.5%). Kronner has been steady on the back end for Detroit all season leading the way with 18 points (5 goals, 13 assists).

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

Get the legs going early - Red Wings looked out of gas vs Toronto. They've played a lot of hockey. Now they've had 2 days to recharge their batteries and get ready for the Blue Jackets.

Stay out of the box - Detroit has taken too many penalties lately. Good thing their penalty killers have done a great job. Columbus is 5 for their last 16 with the man advantage in their last 4 games.

Win goaltending battle - Sergei Bobrovsky has been very good during the Blue Jackets 6 game win streak. Howard needs to outplay Bobrovsky.
