The Red Wings open a four-game road trip starting with a matinee match-up against the Philadelphia Flyers. Detroit will look to put an end to their recent skid, dropping three of the last four games, with Jimmy Howard between the pipes. Howard, in his sixth season as an NHL goaltender, will play at Wells Fargo Center for the first time in his career.

“The fans are nuts, they take it to another level," said Howard, "They never stop yelling at the opposing team. It makes for a great atmosphere, it’s fun."

This will be the third and final meeting between the two clubs this season with each team winning on home ice. Brayden Schenn scored the game-winning power play goal of a 4-2 Flyers win Oct. 25 in Philadelphia. Pavel Datsyuk had two goals in a 5-2 Red Wings win Nov. 26 at The Joe.

The Red Wings strike first, but Columbus' 3 unanswered goals and Sergei Bobrovsky's 41 saves were the difference tonight in Hockeytown as Detroit falls, 3-1.

Thanks for tuning into our Game Day Blog,  we're back in action Saturday afternoon when we pay a visit to Philadelphia to face the Flyers.

Buffalo Wild Wings Hot Wings

Henrik Zetterberg has been on fire as of late, and it's not from scoring goals. Z has been setting his teammates up like a mad-man recording 7 assists in four games! Justin Abdelkader's recent 4 goals in four games stretch has a lot to do with the sauce Zetterberg has been serving up. Look for Z to drop a few more dimes tonight against Columbus and maybe even put one in the back of the net.

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