It’s going to be a big night on Thursday night in Detroit. Not only will it be opening night for the Minnesota Wild and the Detroit Red Wings, but something bigger is happening.
This will be the first regular season hockey game played at the brand new Little Caesars Arena in Detroit.
Once again last year the Minnesota Wild had a successful regular season, but were bounced early in the playoffs again, this time by the St. Louis Blues.
It is basically the same team coming back this year, but people still have high expectations for this season.
One thing to watch in this game is how they replace Zach Parise. He is out of this game with a back injury, and they are going to need to have someone step up to replace his goal scoring.
They also are going to need to try and get an early goal to take the energy out of the building.
Detroit Red Wings
The Detroit Red Wings missed the playoffs for the first time in over 25 years last year, and they really didn’t do a lot to improve their team.
There was a time when the Red Wings were a destination place to go for NHL players but those days seem long gone.
To win this game they are going to need to get good goal tending. They also need to feed off the crowd energy.
