GameDay: vs. Chicago (6-5-3-1), 7:30

Tonight is the first of six meetings between these two Original Six rivals. While the Wings are on a 1-5-1 slide, the Hawks were on a 4 game winning streak before losing to the Avalanche last night 4-3 in OT. This is a very important game for the Wings who are three points behind Chicago for second place in the Central Division. I won't say it's a must win game but I will say they must play well tonight, whether they get the win or not. This game is a measuring stick to how the Wings handle adversity and is a chance to begin a comeback. Original Six games are usually exciting and I know the Hawks will come to play. Let's hope the Wings do also. The Wings held a team meeting before practice yesterday where they dissected the third period of Saturday's game against Nashville. Dominik Hasek will return tonight and Mathieu Dandenault is 95% sure he'll be ready. Jason Williams (groin) and Darren McCarty (back) are both scratches.
