The Detroit Red Wings face-off against the Chicago Blackhawks today at 1:00 p.m. EDT.
The Red Wings were dominated for most of Game One, but Detroit stuck in there until the last 10 minutes of the Third Period. Remember, the Red Wings lost Game One last series after being beaten soundly by the Ducks, so do not look to into this game.
The Blackhawks looked well rested in Game One and their penalty kill stayed perfect. The Red Wings will have to capitalize on the power play if they want to take Game Two and head to Detroit all tied up, but Corey Crawford, Jonathan Toews, and Marian Hossa will be working to that not happening.
Drew Miller could return to the line-up tonight after returning from a fractured hand.
Jimmy Howard was solid in the first game of the series and will have to continue to be if the Wings have a chance at winning.
The whole defensive front need to be better after Game One; better passing, better coverage, and better on offense.
Prediction: First prediction in a long time. Red Wings tie the series at 1 a piece with a 3-2 victory.
Griffins Note: The Griffins beat the Marlies yesterday and lead the series 3-1.
