Ty Conklin gets the start for the Red Wings tonight, his third in a row. This means that Chris Osgood will go tomorrow in Phoenix.
The Stars are without a whole slew of players. Zubov, Fistric, Robidas and Morrow are all out and of course Sean Avery is suspended and unlikely to ever play for Dallas again.
Marty Turco starts in net for Dallas.
I’ll be missing this game at a holiday party. Last year this same party made me miss the game where Hasek upended Marian Gaborik. I hope this game has the same kind of result.
