WHAT’S ALL THIS THEN?
Red Wings and Penguins, Monday night at 7:30pm Eastern. It’s not your classic Wings/Pens game, since they’ll be without Crosby and Malkin; and the Wings are without Franzen and Datsyuk.
NOW WHERE WERE WE?
This is the second time they’ve played — the first was a 4-1 loss on January 18.

:: The Wings are without Pavel Datsyuk and Johan Franzen for some reason… even though it was Brian Rafalski and Patrick Eaves who have looked like they were shot with .44s the last couple games.
:: Detroit will dress seven defensemen and eleven forwards since they can’t call anyone up because Chris Osgood came off of IR only to decide he can’t dress as a backup yet.
:: Pittsburgh will be without Matt Cooke after his Street Fighter haduken to Ryan McDonaugh’s head.
:: PREDICTION — Red Wings 4, Penguins 2. The Penguins aren’t their usual selves, though still very good.
