The Red Wings will try to bounce back from a 4-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday night. Detroit is gunning for a 23rd consecutive appearance in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but it's going to have to overcome a rash of injuries in order to capture that coveted playoff berth.

"What are you going to do? No sense worrying about it," coach Mike Babcock said of his team's injury situation. "It's part of the business. We have to suck it up and find a way to win."

The good news is it's the Oilers coming to town tonight, who Detroit has had a great deal of success against in recent history. The Wings beat the Edmonton Oilers 5-0 on Nov. 2 in the only other game between the teams this season, and have won five straight against Edmonton. Tonight, they'll look to make it six.
