Oh, yeah, there's a game tonight, too.

After a big day in Red Wings news, the Wings visit the Chicago Blackhawks. Things started off with Ty Conklin clearing waivers and being assigned (as expected) to the Griffins. Minutes later, it was revealed that Pavel Datsyuk will miss two weeks after having had knee surgery. Then we got the news that the Red Wings had reacquired defenseman Kyle Quincey.

I haven't heard otherwise, but I imagine that Quincey will not be in the lineup tonight, with Jakub Kindl going instead.

Jimmy Howard and Danny Cleary will return from their respective injuries, the former getting the start in goal and the latter taking Datsyuk's spot in the lineup. With all the shuffling, here are the forward lines:

Franzen - Zetterberg - Bertuzzi
Hudler - Filppula - Cleary
Miller - Helm - Abdelkader
Holmstrom - Emmerton - Mursak

On Chicago's side of things, captain Jonathan Toews will be out.

Game time is 8:00 PM on FSD and NBCSN.

Okay, I don't care how many signs they put up at United Center, it's not the Madhouse on Madison. They tore that down over 15 years ago.

Finger broken, legs still work. Great save by Howard.

Not a bad period, Wings got bottled up in their own end a little but Howard looked good.

Wings haven't been able to control the puck all period. That was bound to happen. Better wake the f*ck up.

FYP. You can't blame the issues in the middle because Datsyuk is out of the lineup. You can blame defense for the two plus odd man rushes I have seen since I say down. p*ss poor coverage like that is UNSAT... PERIOD!

Last minute of the period was Detroit's best. Not good at all.

The sad thing is they really need to win tonight. They can lose the next road game, but not this one. To win like that at home for six games and then drop your first game on the road is embarrassing.

Wings getting knocked around easy tonight, part of why they haven't been able to gain the Chicago zone.

Well, at least Jimmy looked good.

Is there anything more to say than that? The Red Wings played a horrible game tonight. They got knocked off the puck, missed their passes, and didn't get solid shots through to the net. They looked disinterested for the last 40 minutes of play and it bit them in the ass.

They deserved that loss.

This team often reminds me of the little girl in the poem that I enjoyed as a child...when they are good, they are very, very good, but when they are bad, they are horrid (painful to watch, too).
