Game of the night:

Overall: Red Wings (18-9-1) … Penguins (17-9-4)
Away/Home: Red Wings (6-7-0) … Penguins (8-2-2)
Last 10: Red Wings (8-2-0) … Penguins (6-3-1)
Season Series (10/11): 2-0 Penguins

Players to watch:
DET- Henrik Zetterberg
He got off to a slow start, but Zetterberg has 12 points in his last 10 games.
PIT- James Neal
Neal has three goals in the last two games and has 11 goals on home ice this season.

Starting goaltenders:
DET- Jimmy Howard (2011-12 stats: 17-6-1, 1.85 GAA)
PIT- Marc-Andre Fleury (2011-12 stats: 15-6-2, 2.23 GAA)

Injury report:
DET- Patrick Eaves (jaw, out)
PIT- Jordan Staal (lower body, questionable), Sidney Crosby, Kris Letang and Zbynek Michalek (concussion, out), Richard Park (foot, out), Dustin Jeffrey (knee, out), Ben Lovejoy (wrist, out)

Game thoughts:
Once again, the Penguins have been derailed by injuries. Will they be able to continue to withstand them and keep winning? Dan Bylsma and company, a good home team, welcome the Red Wings to town tonight. Mike Babcock’s gang has played well in the last month-plus and are chasing down Chicago in the Central. Without Crosby and possibly Staal, I think it will be tough for the Pens to pull this one out against the Wings.
Prediction: Red Wings 4, Penguins 2
