Gameday Preview: Calgary at Detroit 

The Calgary Flames make their last stop at Joe Louis Arena tonight. They just lost their last game against the Blackhawks and are looking to win more games, especially with Johnny Gaudreau out for a few weeks. 

Chad Johnson will get his fourth straight start with 2.35 GAA and .910 percentage. 

Projected lines:

Bennett | Monahan | Brouwer

Tkachuk | Backlund | Frolik 

Shinkaruk | Stajan | Chiasson 

Ferland | Hamilton | Hathway 

Giordano | Hamilton 

Brodie | Wideman 

Kulak | Engelland 

Johnson 

Elliot 

The Wings need to desperately get back on track after being shutout by Washington, extending a 3 game lose losing streak. 

Getting more offense is the key. Detroit hasn’t been able to create many quality chances and produce shots like they should. Thankfully, Vanek returns to the lineup after an injury. 

Howard gets the start again. He still holds an impressive 1.71 GAA with a save percentage of .945. 

Projected Lines: 

Nyquist | Zetterberg | Mantha 

Larkin | Neilsen | Vanek

Tatar | Sheahan | Abdelkader 

Glendening | Ott | Miller 

Dekeyser | Green 

Ericsson | Marchenko 

Kronwall | Sproul 

Howard

Mrazek 

Detroit is 8-9-1, and the visitors are 7-11-1. Puck drop is at 7:30 EST. Go Wings!
