A decade ago, a 'Red Wings vs. Avalanche' matchup was a date fans would circle on their calendars from Day 1.

Since then, the two teams have taken very paths; the Wings maintained their status quo, reaching the playoffs every year and winning another Stanley Cup. The Avs, on the other hand, experienced a roller-coaster ride that eventually took them from contenders to cellar dwellers, including a last-place finish in 2013. But after a complete overhaul upstairs, behind the bench, and on the ice, the undefeated Avalanche have re-set the bar in Denver a mile high. Welcome back, old friends.

While many are wondering whether Colorado's early rise back to relevance is real or just smoke and mirrors, tonight will be a real test for them when a hot Detroit team comes to town riding a three-game winning streak. Led by Patrick Roy, this time as head coach, the Avalanche battling the Wings will be must-see TV once again.

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 tune in to tonight's 9:00 PM ET game on Fox Sports Detroit or listen in on AM 1270.
