Misconduct

Pregame: Red Wings @ Wild - 2/17

The Red Wings take their two-game losing streak to Minnesota tonight to face a Wild team that has also lost two-straight.

Pavel Datsyuk will be a game-time decision for Detroit. He missed Friday's loss to the Anaheim Ducks with a shoulder injury but took the morning skate today. He'll take pre-game warmups before determining if he can go tonight.

Mikael Samuelsson will make his first appearance in the Wings' lineup since the second game of the season, returning from a groin injury. To make room for him, Gustav Nyquist was returned to the Grand Rapids Griffins.

On the blue line, Kent Huskins will swap back into the lineup in favor of Jakub Kindl.

Rookie Petr Mrazek gets the start in goal for Detroit. It will likely be his final start before returning to the Griffins, as Jonas Gustavsson is in Grand Rapids getting a rehab start in and seems ready to return from his groin injury.

Game time is 6:00 PM on FSD.

As they say, the puck just finds Brunner. Rebound chance goes right to him.

Not a bad period. Wild didn't have a whole lot going, not sure if that'd credit to the Wings' D or Minnesota being bad.

Saw that coming when that real nice pass made it through. Too much space for Datsyuk.

To be fair to Mrazek, no one expects Heatley to send anything slowly towards a wall.

Ericsson pinches, Filppula and Samuelsson both get burned, Zucker scores. Ugly play.

Wings have stopped skating. Surprise! This team makes no sense some times.

Just joined in the 3d and it's like the Wings are skating around on peg-legs...
