It's Chris Chelios Heritage Night in Chicago tonight but some say he's been tainted by his time in Detroit. Personally, I love the fact that the Red Wings took a Chicago icon and turned him into one of our own. The Blackhawks can try to claim Bob Probert all they want, we still love him. We made them hate their hero.

The Red Wings sit atop the Central Division (and the Western Conference) while the Blackhawks are in the basement. Both teams are slumping a bit as of late, though slumping is relative. The Wings are 6-3-1 in their last ten but the three losses are of only seven total on the season. The Blackhawks are 5-4-1 over the same time period and have lost two in a row to the Colorado Avalanche.

Chicago will start backup goalie Corey Crawford. Jimmy Howard gets the start for Detroit after the Wings' players convinced Mike Babcock to give Chris Osgood the start at home on Sunday, with the chance to get his 400th win in front of the Joe Louis Arena crowd.

Changing up the goalie schedule to accommodate a possible milestone worries me. Especially with how the Wings usually play on Sundays.

Drew Miller is back onto the Wings' fourth line in place of Kris Draper.

Chicago will be without Patrick Kane, Marian Hossa, and Victor Stralman.

You're telling me the ref saw the puck the whole time?

Of course they score that fast.

There we f*cking go! Eaves says "That's why Draper is out and I'm in."

Zata needed to shoot on the three-on-two. Pavs was covered. Of course, that doesn't mean much sometimes.

Despite their injuries, the Hawks are looking pretty strong.

In all? Not a horrible period. Awful start but really got better from then on. Wings look sloppy in their own end but solid on offense. Crawford is giving up some big rebounds, gotta take advantage.

Ice looks awful, puck bouncing and people falling all over.

Agreed. The ice looks like hell. As I figured, DirecTV shafted me with the NHL network broadcast. The Wings started out really slow and got a reality check early on. They need to come out really strong in the second and take advantage of those rebounds!

Babcock should shake his head. That was f*cking stupid. And what's it take for the Wings to get a power play?

I cannot believe that the Wings all stood up on the blue line and got skated by. What in the hell was that?

Wings are gonna need a good third here. I think they can do it but they're in a hole.

At least they'll call icing on Chicago if they're not calling anything else.
