GameDay: @ St. Louis (13-5-1-1), 8:00 EST

Tonight is the second of six meetings between these two Central Division rivals. The Blues won the first game, 6-5, on October 29th off three goals from Doug Weight. The Blues have gone 7-2-1 in their last ten games and are coming off a 2-2 tie with the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Wings have won three of their last four games and are coming off a blow-out win over New York. The Wings will again be without Dominik Hasek. I expect the Wings to stick with what's working and start Manny Legace again tonight. Tomas Holmstrom is apparently out for a month if not more so Nathan Robinson will play tonight and for a while. Ray Whitney is still out with a groin injury and McCarty is still out with his back injury. The Blues will most importantly be without Barret Jackman (shoulder) and Al MacInnis (eye). The Wings need this win. It's their chance to pull ahead of the Blues in the standings and get out of the lower Western Conference. They will be tired from last night's game and their injuries will make it that much tougher but they need to play well tonight and get another win. They have the momentum they need and I'm confident they'll do what they have to do.
