Pregame: Avalanche @ Red Wings - 4/1

Coming off an embarrassing loss to the Chicago Blackhawks, the Red Wings host the Colorado Avalanche tonight.

Jimmy Howard gets the start after being pulled on Sunday, having allowed four goals by early into the second period.

Detroit will be without forwards Henrik Zetterberg and Mikael Samuelsson. Samuelsson was injured in Sunday's loss, which was his first game back from a series of injuries that had kept him out since the second game of the season.

Carlo Colaiacovo will make his Red Wings home debut in his third game with the team. Like Samuelsson, he's been out since the second game of the year. He made two appearances over the weekend with the Grand Rapids Griffins in a rehab stint.

Game time is 7:30 PM on FSD.

Choppy first but taking a 1-0 lead out of it after the way the last two games have gone is a good thing.

That shouldn't have been so hard. Wings looking like a team that had played the day before in the third there. Jimmy coming up huge at the end to preserve the win.
