Gustav Nyquist has been smokin' hot lately, with a total of nine goals in nine games, which was good enough to impress the Swedish national team, which he is now a proud member of.

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

Get the Lead - Start fast and try to score early. Put the pedal to the metal.

Stay Focused on Tonight's Game - The team can't think about the Olympics or vacation plans. They've got one last game and they have a chance to earn two points. 

Continue to Build on the PP - Detroit has 8 PPG's in their last 10 games. They'll need to capitalize when they have the man advantage tonight.

In the 6,000th game in franchise history, Detroit will try to close the gap between the teams to three points, while Tampa Bay will be without its top two centers as Valtteri Filppula joins Steven Stamkos on the injured list.

Detroit was in danger of falling behind a bushel of Eastern Conference teams in the race for the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but the Red Wings have rallied with points in seven of eight games (5-1-2) and entered Friday in the second wild card spot. Pavel Datsyuk returned Thursday, playing on the wing, but could return to his traditional spot at center on Saturday.

"It's first game I played in one month, it's a little easier to play on the wing. But I'm hoping I play at center," Datsyuk said.

"It was great to have him on board again," Henrik Zetterberg said. "I thought he played real well his first game and is just going to get better."

Welcome to the Detroit Red Wings Game Day Blog, where you can get behind-the-scenes information, thoughts from players and staff, and up-to-date news on anything and everything Red Wings on game day.

You can watch tonight's 7:00 PM matchup on Fox Sports Detroit, or listen in with Ken Kal and Paul Woods on AM 1270.
