The top two teams in the Western Conference meet tonight as the San Jose Sharks visit the Detroit Red Wings. The race is still close enough that a win is important for both teams.

Chris Chelios and Tomas Kopecky will be the healthy scratches for Detroit tonight as Brad Stuart returns to the Red Wings' blueline and Kris Draper takes his spot back on the fourth line rotation.

Ty Conklin gets the start in net.

Much has been made of Claude Lemeiux's return to Joe Louis Arena but I think he's a washed-up has-been so I won't give him more words than that.

The Pistons have been shifted to FSN+ so this one is on standard FSN and FSN-HD.

Nabokov messed up on that one.

Wings' power play looked awful until Hossa scored. That was entirely an individual effort, great move on the boards and a lot of luck that it slipped through Nabokov.

"Familiar #32." Uh, Ken, I'd think Wings fans are more familiar with Lemieux wearing the #22 he wore in Denver.

Zata misses a wide-open net. Someone send an EMT.

Ville Leino is a motherf*cking pimp! Banged it out of mid-air.

No way they'll call this back but I don't think it crossed the line.

Overturned, bitches! And that ref can blow me for being so demonstratively wrong.

That was a pretty intense first period. The Red Wings were playing pretty tough. Good to see but they'll have to keep it up.

They got some lucky breaks, too. What a goal by Leino!

Both teams look a bit reckless out there. Some excellent bang bang plays by the wings, but it's still choppy. Not that I expected differently.

Very physical. For a little bit there, I was waiting for a ice wide fight. We may still see it. We're in for a nail biter folks!

As he was turning around, I was thinking "goal". There was no doubt about it. What a play.

Sammy needs a goal tonight. He's trying to prove himself.
Who are you and why are you so perky?
