Johan Franzen continues to roll since the Olympic Break. On Tuesday,
he had his third consecutive multi-point game with a goal and an
assist, good for seven points in just three games.

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

Play tight to the vest - The Avalanche are fast and the Wings need to take their time and space away, especially in the neutral zone.

Contributions from all four lines - The Wings will need a balanced scoring attack tonight to get the job done.

Stay out of the box - The Avs have the fourth best power play in the league and they move the puck quickly with the man advantage. Don't give them time to set up.

On March 6, 1996

Chris Osgood becomes only the second goalie in NHL history to shoot and score a goal in a game. It was against the Whalers in the Hartford Civic Center.

Tonight, the Red Wings will look to defeat Colorado in front of some old faces on Nick Lidstrom Jersey Retirement Night. What makes it even more interesting is the fact that they'll be looking to do so with some new faces in red, as David Legwand is set to make his Red Wings debut.

Yesterday, Detroit sent forward Patrick Eaves, prospect Calle Jarnkrok and a third-round draft pick to Nashville for Legwand, a Grosse Pointe Woods, Mich., native who's played his entire 15-year career with the Predators.

"With Zetterberg, with Datsyuk, with Helm, and with Weiss, the uncertainty of where we're at, we felt it was important to get a bona-fide center," general manager Ken Holland said. "The news in the last 48 hours, that all factored into acquiring a center. The one we acquired is a local boy, so if we want to keep him beyond this year, we think it's reasonable that can happen, because he had to waive a no-trade clause to come here. He wanted to come home."

Tonight, they'll look to win one for Nick and move back into that final wild card spot.

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 8:00 PM matchup on Fox Sports Detroit or NHL-Network, or listen in with Ken Kal and Paul Woods on 97.1 The Ticket or AM1270.
