Stars @ Red Wings - 2/14
Posted February 14, 2012 - 06:13 PM
As in their last several games, they'll do so without goalie Jimmy Howard, who is expected to return from his broken finger on Sunday against the San Jose Sharks (but could be back on Friday against the Nashville Predators).
Detroit will use the same lineup they've used for the last two games. Mike Commodore is the healthy scratch on defense, Danny Cleary remains out up front and Joey MacDonald gets the start in goal.
Game time is 7:30 PM on FS+.

That said, it's incredibly cool to see. Twenty-one wins in a row at home is something no team in NHL history has ever done. In a league that's been around this long, anytime you can do that is something special. It is a legitimate historical moment.
It's also two important points on a night the St. Louis Blues lost. It's another big win for Joey MacDonald, who looks more and more like the Red Wings' backup goalie once Jimmy Howard returns. It's more scoring from their top players (Zetterberg, Hudler) and their defense (Stuart).
Things I liked:
Detroit got out to a fantastic start and owned things early. They capitalized on chances and got the 2-0 lead. No need to fight back tonight.
Things I didn't like:
Whether because the Wings let up or otherwise, the Stars really came on in the third. That could have been dangerous but the Wings rode it out.
