It's a battle of undefeateds as the 5-0-0 Red Wings visit Washington to take on the 6-0-0 Capitals.

The game is the 1500th of Niklas Lidstrom's career and the 100th of Fabian Brunnstrom's - his first with Detroit - as he replaces Tomas Holmstrom in the Wings' lineup. Patrick Eaves swaps in for Drew Miller and with the Wings playing their second game in as many nights, Ty Conklin gets the nod in goal.

Game time is 7:00 PM. FSD has the local TV.

I'm watching this on on NHLN online. The game just started, should be an exciting one!

Well, that was an absolutely stupid penalty by Bert and it costs the Wings.

Conklin way off his post there. Ugly. Should have been out of the zone though.

I think we are going to be embarrassed.

Important for the Wings to get out of that period only down by two. Caps carried the play for sure.

Missed the start of the second in the longest line ever at Jet's Pizza. Looks like it was all good stuff. Ugh.

Hell of a shot by Kronner. On the board.

Another five on three. This could be huge.

Only shot on the whole five on three was from the side of the net. Trying too hard to be perfect.

Wow, Conks. That's two I don't like and I've only seen three.

That last goal was all on Conklin.... No excuse for that.

Stuart got a bit burned, then Kronner failed to cover the cross. Ugly all around.

At least that one's over. I'll be quick with this.

Vokoun stopped the Wings early and it gave the Caps a chance to get into the game. This is an entirely different game if two key saves don't happen in the first period.

Washington got on the board on a power play that didn't need to happen. Todd Bertuzzi had no need throw that hit on an icing call.

The second Capitals goal came off a giveaway that never should have happened and bad goaltending. Ty Conklin can't be faulted for every goal tonight, no matter how bad his numbers were, but he was way off the post on that second goal.

I haven't even seen the third Caps goal yet and the lone Wings goal doesn't matter, so we're on to the fourth Caps goal. What a mess. Should've been an easy stop by Conklin but it trickles through and he doesn't know. Caps pounce on the loose puck. Three more goals would be scored but the game was really done at that point.

The Wings will probably say they need to forget this one and move on. I say they need to remember it so they don't do it again.
