Tonight, The Red Wings travel a half-hour north of Anaheim for a match up with the defending Stanley Cup Champions, LA Kings. Detroit suffered a 4-3 shootout loss at the Honda Center last night, in a game they let get away. Detroit is 2-0-1 on the trip thus far and is three points behind the Tampa Bay Lightning for second place in the Atlantic Division. "I thought we controlled the game," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. "The puck found a way in our net a couple times. I didn't like it, but I thought our team played good and played hard. Our kids were good." Jonas Gustavsson is expected to make his first start since November 5th, since being out with a shoulder injury. Henrik Zetterberg is expected to miss his second consecutive game this season.

Without the magic of Pavel Datsyuk, the Red Wings could have very well mailed in the final two minutes of the Dallas game and flew to Anaheim with a 6-5 loss. But, the scorching hot stick of Pavel Datsyuk tied the game at 6 with less than two-minutes remaining, and he then went on to assist Niklas Kronwall in getting the game in winner in overtime. The Magic Man finished the night with 2 goals and 2 assists, and now has recorded 8 points in his past four games.

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

Tighten up - Bad news: Detroit has allowed 9 goals in their last 2 games. Good News: they've scored 10! Get back to basics and play well defensively.

Grind it out - Win the battles in the corners. Retrieve pucks and cycle well down low in the offensive zone. Wear out the Ducks defensemen.

Play better in front of Howard - Keep the Ducks away from the front of the net. Limit turnovers and giveaways. Communicate effectively in the defensive zone.
