It's the Colorado Avalanche at Detroit tonight, with the Red Wings hoping to build on their 5-0 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday and get a winning streak going.

Todd Bertuzzi and Patrick Eaves remain out for the Wings, giving Fabian Brunnstrom another chance in the Detroit lineup. On the blue line, Jakub Kindl swaps back in for Mike Commodore. Jimmy Howard gets the start in goal.

Game time is 7:30 PM. TV is FSD.

What a shot. Kind of a gift but that was massive finish.

Not a bad period. I'd feel better if the Wings had gotten a PPG there.

Don't tell me that wasn't a set play, that "shot" from the point was all pass.

Wings chase a goalie for the second consecutive game.

Gift for the Avs. Awful call to put them on the power play, then charitable non whistle when the puck was covered.

That evener is biting the Wings in the ass. Colorado's been on a roll since then.

Wings happy to survive that with the lead still at two. Gotta wake up to start the third.

Brunnstrom looked tired on the breakaway. Damn.

Cleary bangs home the rebound of his own tip of a Datsyuk shot. Important goal, gives back some breathing room.

Damn. Wings should have been able to clear that from the edge of the crease. Lets see if it matters.

Boxscore has Mule with three goals. Print it now in case they change it. Curly fries.

That's two solid games in a row for the Red Wings. Not earth-shattering but definitely a good sign.

Detroit's top players continue to get going. Lidstrom with another goal, Franzen with the hat trick (one of which could easily have gone to Filppula), and Cleary turned a Datsyuk shot into a goal.

Even Ericsson, who I thought was pretty awful overall, had one real nice play where he broke into the Colorado zone and carried the puck in behind the net to get Hudler a chance. Hudler choked on it, which is some kind of karma for Ericsson, but it was close.

Howard wasn't tested much but I wouldn't put either goal squarely on him. The first shouldn't have happened at all (I don't care if he was pushed in or not, I just think it's impossible that the ref saw the puck so he should have blown it dead). On the second one, the puck should have been cleared away by White. Unfortunate for Howard but not the end of the world when the offense is making up for it.

Aside from the part of the second period after Colorado's first goal, the Red Wings did a good job of controlling the pace of the game. That's important as they come out of this slump and not easy against a fast team like the Avalanche.
