LGD – We’re Going to Detroit

detroit

After a proper 4-1 spanking last night, the Leafs will get a second crack at the Wings tonight, this time in beautiful, sunny Detroit. If you’re heading down for the game, don’t forget to lock your doors and don’t talk to strangers.

If the Leafs hope to salvage two points out of this back-to-back they’ll need to keep a closer eye on Henrik Zetterberg, who set up each of Detroit’s four goals last night. Last Red Wing to do that?

Brandon Kozun won’t be playing tonight due to an ankle injury. For Detroit, Johan Franzen is a gametime decision after leaving last night’s tilt with an injury.
