Pavel Datsyuk
is off to a scorching start. Pav picked up three points for the first time since Dec. 19, 2013 against the Kings on Friday, extending his point streak to five straight games, which is a personal best to begin a season. The Magic Man now has eight points in just five games.

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

Brian Lashoff will make his season debut after being a healthy scratch for the first 10 games of the season.

"(Lash) gets his opportunity and when you get your opportunity
you gotta make good and you gotta carve out a little niche
for yourself, so make it a competition for the other guys"
- Mike Babcock

"I think they know what to expect from me. I’m going to battle, penalty kill and do what I do. But at the same time, I want to get better at some things like moving the puck quick and getting involved in the offense." - Brian Lashoff

Johan Franzen is expected to return
after missing six games with a groin injury.

Take advantage of tired legs - The Wings should be the fresher team. The Sabres played yesterday in Pittsburgh, so Detroit had to jump on them when Buffalo gets tired.

Get the lead - Buffalo has a hard time generating offense. Make them play catch up hockey.

Win the special teams battle - Take advantage of power play opportunities. Continue with the league's best penalty kill.

The Detroit Red Wings will try to defeat the Buffalo Sabres for the ninth straight time when they come to First Niagara Center. Detroit opens a stretch of three road games in four nights minus one of its regular defensemen. Kyle Quincey left the Red Wings' 5-2 victory against the Los Angeles Kings on Friday with an ankle injury and has been ruled out against the Sabres. That means another opportunity for Brian Lashoff, who played 75 games for Detroit last season but will be making his 2014-15 debut.

"Lash is a good pro. He's worked real hard, he's going to be an important penalty-killer for us, was last year," coach Mike Babcock said yesterday. "He gets his opportunity, and when you get your opportunity, you gotta make good and you gotta carve out a little niche for yourself, so make it a competition for the other guys."

The Red Wings should also get a lift from the return of forward Johan Franzen, who missed the past six games with a groin injury. Tonight, Mule and the Wings will go for their third straight victory here in Buffalo.
