Oh, how the mighty have fallen. From epic rematch to tickle fight in just 7 short months.
Both teams were certainly struggling when they faced each other in November, but the Red Wings are now absolutely hammered by injuries and the Ducks have struggled just to earn a seat in the Western Conference basement. A win against Anaheim would put Detroit back above the playoff waterline, and a win by Anaheim would feed the optimistic "almost there -- one goal games -- striking distance" talk of a team in a division where everyone else is good (not to mention playoff bound if the postseason started today).
The Ducks will be without Lupul and may be WITH Calder. Also, per Sleek, new potential nickname for Dan Sexton: Registered Sex Offender.
Post any lineup changes and info in the comments.
F all of our L's!
