Detroit takes on the Edmonton Oilers tonight with a 9:30 pm puck drop on FSD. The Wings just destroyed the Manchester Monarchs Los Angeles Kings Saturday night, and should have no problem dispatching the Oilers in the same fashion.

The first time Detroit met Edmonton this season Jimmy Howard shut them out, and the rest of the team shut them up. The Oilers seem to have cooled off after a hot start to the season.

Cory Emmerton had a big night on Saturday, scoring 2 goals and adding an assist while playing a team low 11:23. Lets hope that Emmerton can continue that type of play and gain enough confidence and possibly become a breakout player for Detroit this year.
