The Red Wings look to prove that their 5-3 win over the Minnesota Wild on Friday night wasn't a fluke, as they visit the Chicago Blackhawks tonight.
While the Wings have been reeling, the Blackhawks have been rolling. With a 3-2 win in Columbus last night, the 'Hawks sit at 5-0 on the season. A win tonight would set a new franchise record for victories to start the season.
It's looking like Detroit will get Jonathan Ericsson back in the lineup as they attempt to get above .500 for the first time this season. If he can return from his shoulder and hip injuries, he'll replace Jakub Kindl (who made his first appearance of the season on Friday) on the blue line.
It's worse news for the forward lines, though, as Darren Helm has suffered a setback with his back injury and will be out tonight, replaced by Patrick Eaves.
Game time is 7:00 PM with TV coverage on FSD.
