Wings Aim to Douse Flames in Cowtown

After a 3-2 shootout loss at home to the Blue Jackets, the Wings packed their bags and headed north of the border for Calgary. Tonight's game is the first of a three-game swing in Canada for Detroit, and in a truncated season where every point counts, the Wings understand the magnitude of bringing points back home with them. "It's definitely huge," said Jimmy Howard, "There's a lot that's going on here with teams just jockeying for position. It's imperative for us to
get off on the right foot here tonight."

Coach Babcock echoed Howie's sentiments of the trip's importance, but also stressed the significance of tonight's game. "This is huge. It's not even the trip, it's (tonight). We've got one out of a possible four points here lately. We need to get back on the winning side of things." With three days since their last game, the Wings should come out firing against the Flames.
