This is going to be short and sweet, as I will be attending the game tonight.

Dallas is a very dangerous team. They may be on the cusp of making the playoffs, but Jamie Benn, Loui Eriksson and Michael Ryder are all Wing killers.

Detroit has won all three meeting so far this season, and will go for the sweep tonight.

Start on time, Shoot the puck and keep the pressure on. Let's get 21!
