The Red Wings are back after the week they got off following their long West Coast road trip. They host a New Jersey Devils team that's battling a whole mess of injuries.

Unless you've been living under a hockey rock for the last week, you've heard that Martin Brodeur is on the shelf for up to for months. Kevin Weekes replaces him in the New Jersey crease.

Brodeur is one of seven Devils on the IR. Also out are Paul Martin, Brian Rolston, Bobby Holik, Barry Tallackson, Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond, and Andy Greene.

The Wings will still be without Johan Franzen, who hopes to return to the lineup on Tuesday.

This will be Brian Rafalski's first matchup against his former team (the Wings and Devils didn't play each other last season).

No player who will be in the New Jersey lineup tonight has ever been present for a New Jersey win in Detroit.

Early fight between McCarty and David Clarkson. Long fight, held on for a long time, nice to see the linesmen not jumping in early. I give Mac the decision in that one.

Hossa sneaks one in! Really bad goal for Weekes to give up and Rafalski gets the assist against his former team.

Awful power play by Detroit. Only seems fair since it was an awful call to give them the five-on-three.

Just missed the first period. Looks like I missed a good period, not to mention one hell of a fight. But the second period's started now.

Awful power play again, no defensive coverage on Parise. Nice. Way to go.

And it's all tied up. Soft goal.

I wouldn't call it a soft goal, there wasn't much Osgood could do. But there should have been better D.

Ken and Mickey keep talking about long fights, how are they forgetting Downey's fight in Columbus last year?

Hopefully Hossa can get a hat trick! :)

Goal between the legs. :)

And Hossa with his 2nd of the game.

I meant soft goal not in terms of the shot, I'm not sure how to explain it.

Clean hit by Meech but Gionta fell funny. That's not good at all.

It looks like his momentum carried him onto the boards, and hit his head.

Big save by Osgood. Sigh of relief.

Joke of a hooking call on Hossa. That's like if I dive into your elbow and you get called for elbowing.

Maltby! Holy sh*t, he's not useless!

Really good shift by that fourth line.
