Since coming back from a groin injury, Daniel Alfredsson has been red hot. In his last 4 games, Alfie has 7 points (4 Goals, 3 Assists) and has a +6 rating. He's also been hot against Philly throughout his career, with a total of 50 points in 56 games.

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

Pavel Datsyuk skated today, but will not play tonight.

Pavel says he's symptom-free, but does need time to get back into game-shape.

DeKeyser is eligible to come off long-term IR on December 14, but doesn't know if he'll be ready by then. He's aiming for a
mid to late December return.

Everyone Needs to Contribute - Now is the time for all members of the team to step up their game, especially with Datsyuk, Zetterberg, and DeKeyser out with injuries.

Don't try to do it all - Continue to play as a five-man group and trust your teammates.

Possess the Puck - The best defense is when you have the puck. Dictate the play, and play in the offensive zone as much as possible. Be on the attack for sixty minutes.

How will the Red Wings cope with their first line sitting in the press box? Henrik Zetterberg is out at least two weeks with back issues, Pavel Datsyuk is working his way back from a concussion and Todd Bertuzzi has a shoulder injury.

Zetterberg is no stranger to back problems, so he knows when he can push through the pain and when he has to take some time off. This time it's the latter: The Red Wings disclosed Tuesday that Zetterberg has a herniated disc in his back and will sit out at least two weeks with the hope that the rest will allow him to heal.

Nevertheless, the shorthanded Wings will battle through and look to extend their winning streak to five tonight on 'Toys for Tots Night'.

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 NBCSN, or listen in with Ken Kal and Paul Woods on AM1270.
