Gustav Nyquist has just been filthy lately. Not only does he have seven points in his last five games, but he also netted a huge overtime game-winner last night in Montreal.

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

Start on Time - Detroit started well and came out fast early last night. That'll be important again tonight.

Try to Play with the Lead - As we approach the home stretch, it's critical to have the lead and not get caught playing catchup hockey.

Dictate the Play - Detroit did it great last night against Montreal, controlling the pace and limiting the Canadiens' chances. They'll need to do the same here in Ottawa.

2009: Playing in career game No. 1,000, forward Kirk Maltby was a plus-1 in more than 10-minutes of ice time in the Wings' 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings at Joe Louis Arena.

Detroit returned from the break for the 2014 Sochi Olympics with a 2-1 overtime win against the Canadiens on Wednesday. Gustav Nyquist scored the game-winner with 27.3 seconds remaining.

Johan Franzen returned from a concussion and earned assists on both goals in his first game since Jan. 26.

Franzen and linemates Pavel Datsyuk and Todd Bertuzzi will have to carry much of the offensive load for Detroit with captain Henrik Zetterberg likely out for the rest of the season following back surgery. Bertuzzi's first-period goal was his first since Dec. 10; he had been a healthy scratch for the prior eight games.

"It's well documented that Mule hasn't played in a long time, Pav has been injured, and then Bert hasn't played in a while," coach Mike Babcock said after the game. "So that line right there, as good as players as they are, hasn't got a lot of tempo in their game as of yet, but they'll get it."

Tonight, Detroit will look to keep rolling when they visit the Senators.
