The National Hockey League returns to action following the Olympic Break tonight as the Detroit Red Wings visit the Colorado Avalanche.

Colorado forward Paul Stastny, Detroit defenseman Brian Rafalski and Detroit head coach Mike Babcock were all active yesterday, with Babcock's Team Canada downing a Team USA squad featuring Stastny and Rafalski in the Gold Medal Game.

Andreas Lilja will make his first appearance of the season on the Red Wings' blue line, having been cleared to play after suffering post-concussion symptoms for nearly a year. His last game was 366 days ago, February 28, 2009.

I'd been thinking that Lilja's return combined with Rafalski having played three games in five days would lead to Rafalski sitting this one out but I'm not seeing any news on that front. I actually haven't come across any lineup notes.

The Red Wings are as healthy as they've been all season, with Kirk Maltby the only injured player. With Maltby out and Brad May having been sent to Grand Rapids, the Red Wings will dress all 12 healthy forwards. Two defensemen will be scratched, with one of them possibly being dealt for a depth forward before Wednesday's trade deadline.

While Versus is torture, the passing leading to Homer's goal was fantastic.

Late post but a hell of a shot by Franzen to make it 2-0. Great first period for Detroit. Been missing that kind of play all season.

Hell of a chance on the two-on-one. Great play by whoever got the puck to Cleary at center ice.

Edit: That was Bert.

That is the wrong f*cking call. Homer was way gone by the time the puck was in.

Can someone please compile all the bull crap disallowed goals for the Wings this year already and upload to Youtube so people can see that us Wings fans aren't making it up.

Did they think the called off goal was as good of a call as the Versus guys did?

no the commentator on 97.1, sorry can't recall his name right now, thought it was a bad call and a good goal.

That was a f*cking dive. Anderson fell like he was hit high and Homer didn't do that.

this is looking like a typical '09 '10 Wings regular season game. Already a non-goal call that changes the game.
