Pavel Datsyuk has been red hot for the Wings this season, and has put up some impressive numbers as of late. In his last two games, he has four points (1 Goal, 3 Assists) and is leading the team in goals this year with 14.

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

Get into their Defense - The Islanders' D doesn't have a lot of size, but they are good on the transition. The Wings need to get to them and be physical. Win the battles against them in their zone.

Spend Time in the O-Zone - The more time Detroit spends in New York's end, the more opportunities the Wings will have to score.

Play Well in Front of your own Net - Keep turnovers to a minimum and keep the Islanders to the outside. 

Get a Win - A win is the perfect present going into the break. Happy Holidays everyone!

Both teams try to finish their pre-Christmas schedule on a positive note. The Red Wings, who've won their past two, are playing their last game in Detroit before the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic.

The specter of an 11-game winless streak in shootouts was hanging over the Red Wings like Marley's ghost until Saturday night. After a back-and-forth game against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre, the Red Wings got the extra point when Pavel Datsyuk and Daniel Alfredsson scored in the tiebreaker.

"It's huge," Alfredsson said when asked about ending the shootout drought. "It becomes a mental thing. Winning in overtimeagainst Calgary Thursday and then winning in a shootout I think lessens the grip on the stick the next time around."

Tonight, the Wings will look to keep rolling when the reeling New York Islanders visit Hockeytown.

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.
