The Red Wings will play their third consecutive game in California Thursday night, which will also be their third straight playing without captain Henrik Zetterberg. The Red Wings are not calling the injury a concussion, but Zetterberg said Tuesday he's experiencing "some symptoms that I don't have when I'm 100 percent." Jimmy Howard is expected to start in goal tonight, after backup Jonas Gustavsson made 26 saves in a 1-0 loss Tuesday night in LA. "I thought Gustavsson played well,"  said coach Babcock. "I think Gus plays well all of the time, he just doesn't play. He's been injured so much, so when he plays I think he plays well. I think he gives us a chance most nights."

Detroit will look to avenge last seasons series with the Shark, where they were swept by San Jose in two games played. A 1-0 shootout loss at Joe Louis Arena and a 4-1 loss at SAP Center.

The Magic man continues to dazzle! Last night, Pavel Datsyuk was on fire, scoring two goals for his second consecutive game and now has 10 points in his past 5 games. With Zetterberg out, look for Datsyuk to have another huge game tonight in LA.

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

Get legs going early - The Kings have been idle since Saturday. They will be rested. The Wings need to match their speed.

Keep your composure - The Wings have allowed three quick goals in their last two games. Last night they allowed 3 goals in a 3:40 span. When the game changes the need to buckle down is critical.

Skate and move the puck - The Kings are a grinding physical team who like to wear down their opponents. Skating and moving the puck will offset this. Detroit will need to win the battles in the corners. They need to play a complete game.
