Buffalo Wild Wings Hot Wings

  Henrik Zetterberg is on fire! Zetterberg has been putting on a show for the hometown fans by recording 4 goals (1 hat trick) and 4 assists in the past three games at The Joe. Z has been a key part in Detroit's current five game win streak and will look to keep his puck luck going tonight in Sunrise. Henrik Zetterberg leads the club with 44 points. (14 Goals, 30 Assists)

- Mike Babcock

Get the legs moving early - Both teams will probably struggle out of the gate due to having six days off. Getting "the jump" early is necessary for a victory.

Get engaged - Not talking about wedding plans on the beach here. Get physically involved and play with intensity from the opening face off.

Continue to light the lamp - The Red Wings have scored 16 goals in their last three games. The Panthers don't give you much and neither does Roberto Luongo. We'll need to find a way to put the biscuit in the basket.

Detroit went into the break on a high note after winning five straight games. The Red Wings are 10-3-0 since losing six straight games in December, which has vaulted them back into the race for the Atlantic Division lead despite goalie Jimmy Howard's torn groin. Petr Mrazek has responded well; he's started all five games since Howard got hurt and is 4-0-0. Howard skated for about 20 minutes at practice Monday and hopes to return in the original 3-4 week timeline. Forward Tomas Jurco (back) practiced, but is questionable. Defenseman Jakub Kindl (elbow) may come off injured reserve, but isn't likely to play over rookie Xavier Ouellet.

Tonight the Red Wings will face-off against the Florida Panthers for the third time this season. Goalie Roberto Luongo earned wins in the first two games against the Detroit Red Wings, making 67 saves on 72 shots for a .930 save percentage. Center Pavel Datsyuk has a goal and two assists to lead the Red Wings. Petr Mrazek will get the nod in goal for the sixth straight time for the Wings.
