Pavel Datsyuk has been red hot all season, leading the team in goals with 14, but he's also been lighting it up as of late. In his last 4 games, Pav has 6 points, including 2 assists in Saturday's win over the Panthers.

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

Start Fast - Put the pedal to the metal and go after the Preds early.

Penalty Kill Needs to be Sharp - 9 of Nashville's last 18 goals have come on the power play and they have a PP goal in 6 straight home games.

Need Solid Goalkeeping - Whoever is in net has to make timely saves. The team needs to play well in front of the net, as well.

The Red Wings received a boost Saturday in a 4-3 win against the Florida Panthers with the return of forward Henrik Zetterberg. "It's huge. Hank brings so much to this team, both on and off the ice,'' said center Gustav Nyquist. "With him and Pav playing you can really feel the difference. That's why they're our leaders."

In addition to getting their captain back, they could get a couple more key players back. Though goalie Jonas Gustavsson (sore groin) didn't practice Sunday and won't play Monday, Jimmy Howard, who has missed three weeks with a sprained left MCL, will dress and could get the start. So it'll be either him or Petr Mrazek in net tonight. Darren Helm will also be back in for the first time since injuring his shoulder a few weeks ago.
