Alright, it’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these. It’s also been awhile since Henrik Zetterberg has been in the lineup. Coincidence? I don’t know.
Zetterberg is back tonight as the Red Wings visit the Florida Panthers, the first game since December 1 for the Red Wings’ captain. So is Justin Abdelkader, who has recovered from his concussion.
Stupid stat of the day: Detroit is 35-31-21 all-time in their first game of the season after Christmas.
Game time is 7:00 PM on FSD.
