Jimmy Howard said he hopes to be out only 1-2 weeks after
tweaking his knee in practice, but will have an MRI tomorrow.


"I don’t think I’m that concerned about it. I don’t think it’s going to
be anything over the top where I’m going to be out a long time."

Danny DeKeyser skated,
but does not think he'll be ready to play just yet.


"(My shoulder) is starting to feel a lot better; shooting the puck well, starting to take some slap shots and just getting more comfortable... it'll still be a little bit, but hopefully not too much longer."

Play 60 Minutes - The team needs a good start, but they also need to finish. The Wings have to find ways to keep the lead when they have it.

Do your Job - With all the injuries, you can't try to do it all yourself. Trust your teammates and trust in the abilities of one another.

Solid Goalkeeping - The Lightning will get their scoring chances tonight. Detroit will need Gustavsson to make timely saves and keep them in the game.

After a shootout loss in Sunrise on Tuesday, a banged up Detroit team will head to Tampa to face division rival, the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Pavel Datsyuk returned to the Red Wings lineup Tuesday after missing the previous seven games with a concussion and had a goal and an assist in a 3-2 shootout loss against the Florida Panthers. Datsyuk skated on the top line between Todd Bertuzzi and Johan Franzen, which totaled two goals and five points. Datsyuk has 13 goals and 25 points in 25 games and still leads the League with 41 takeaways.

This will be the second of five games between the two teams. In the opener on November 9, Teddy Purcell scored 3:51 into overtime and Ben Bishop made 25 saves to give the Tampa Bay Lightning a 3-2 win. Henrik Zetterberg scored both goals for the Red Wings. Tonight, the Wings will look to avenge that loss at Tampa Bay Times Forum.
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 7:30 PM matchup on Fox Sports Detroit or NHL-Network, or listen in with Ken Kal and Paul Woods on AM 1270.
